Former head of the Clarendon Police, Senior Superintendent Dathan Henry - File
A toxicology report is showing that the former head of the Clarendon Police Senior Superintendent Dathan Henry was poisoned.
Henry died last year after a brief illness. An investigation was launched by the Police High Command.
The findings of the toxicology report were released recently.
The report shows that at the time of his death, the senior superintendent had the substance Warfarin in his body.
Checks with online medical references show that Warfarin is used to prevent the blood from clotting, so that it takes longer than usual for someone to stop bleeding if they have a cut or is injured.
The police high command has since released a statement saying that the tests revealed that there was a mixture of chemicals usually found in rodenticides.
The head of the Major Investigation Task Force, Superintendent Michael Phipps, was tight-lipped about the report.
The MIT is leading the investigation into Henry’s death.
Superintendent Phipps also declined to comment on how the revelation will change the direction of the investigation.
Meanwhile, the family of the former Clarendon Police chief has retained well-known attorney Delano Franklin.
Franklin confirmed the findings of toxicology report to our news centre.
However, he declined to provide further details.
The post mortem conducted on Senior Superintendent Henry’s body was ruled as inconclusive.
Senior Superintendent Henry died suddenly at the Kingston Public Hospital on May 6, 2012 after a brief illness.
He served the Jamaica Constabulary Force for 27 years.
