Barbados Murder Statistics June 2018

I recorded two unnatural deaths for the month of June. One of them was shooting related (Renaldo Foster, 31), while the other was unnatural (Antoine Edmund, 70). Total number of deaths recorded from Jan 1 to Jun 30 = 20.

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
