Barbados Murder Statistics July 2018

I recorded three unnatural deaths for the month of July. All three of them were shooting related (Pauline Clarke, 38, Donason Ricardo Husbands, 26 and Zico Bowen, 25). Total number of deaths recorded from January 1 to July 31 = 23.

A few words on the data collection methodology employed. My data sources are The Media, i.e., The Nation, Barbados Today, Loop Barbados, CBC, et cetera. Reports on unnatural deaths are collected by myself – as and when time permits – and are keyed into a spreadsheet. Unnatural deaths (e.g., murder) are deaths not caused by natural causes (e.g. old age). From there, I classify deaths by various categories, such as parish, age group, et cetera. Charts are then produced and published on my blog
