Anniversary appeal in teen’s death

Police are trying to locate this woman.

One year on from the death of a 14-year-old boy in the water off South Sound during an outing with the Bonaventure Boys’ Home, police have put out a new appeal for witnesses.

Photographs of a man and woman who were believed to be on the scene at the time Risco Batten was pulled from the water were released Tuesday.

“Often witnesses may have seen something that they don’t even realize is of significance,” said Kurt Walton, deputy police commissioner, “and this may be the case with this couple. Given the fact that many people are here on island only certain times of year, we are taking the opportunity of the one-year anniversary of this incident to try to reach them in case they have some information that can bring some clarity to this tragic incident.”

Detectives can be reached at 936-8746 or at George Town Police Station on 949-4222.

Police want to talk to this man, who was on the beach on the day of Risco Batten's death, in case he saw anything of significance.

  1. You mean that if the Police would like to talk to the man who is in the photo with the kayak , that someone cannot identify him and call the police , just to get this little piece out of the way to solving the tragic death of the little boy .
    I know that back in the days , one could and would identify someone with less than what is shown in this photo.
    Even if the kayak was rented . What has Cayman really gone to ?
