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.
