Griffith denies suspect in Bharatt abduction was beaten to death; autopsy carded for Friday

An autopsy is expected to be done at the Forensic Science Centre, St James, on Friday to determine the cause of death of Andrew Morris, who was one of the suspects in the abduction of Andrea Bharatt.

According to police, Morris, 35, died on Monday at the Arima Hospital.

Reports have been circulating that Morris died because he was beaten to death by offices of the SORT.

However, Police Commissioner Gary Griffith has denied those reports.

Griffith said “The man was in custody and he was offered something to eat by the police but he refused.
“He was placed in a chair when he fell. The officers acted swiftly and took him to the hospital where he died.”

Griffith also denied reports that he tried to withhold information on the man’s death to the public as the information concerning the death came two days after it occurred.
