Dutty Wine autopsy results inconclusive
published: Friday | November 3, 2006

Rasbert Turner, Gleaner Writer

Spanish Town, St. Catherine:

An autopsy conducted on the body of 18-year-old Tanisha Henry, who died after performing the popular Dutty Wine dance early Sunday morning, proved inconclusive.

The examination was conducted in Spanish Town by Dr. Kadiyala Persaud, forensic pathologist in the Ministry of National Security. It could not be ascertained what caused the death of the teenager.

However, Tanisha's family members told The Gleaner that, despite the inconclusiveness, Henry's funeral service will be held on Saturday.

Several persons turned up at the funeral home curiously looked on, saying they had heard it was the 'Dutty Wine autopsy' and that that was why they were present.

Pronounced dead

Ms. Henry died about 4:30 a.m. on Sunday after she attended a 'school uniform' party in the Beacon Avenue area of Thompson Pen. It was said that while participating in a 'Dutty Wine' competition, she fell and was rushed to hospital where she was pronounced dead.

In the meanwhile, samples have been sent to the Government forensic laboratory for examination to determine what may have caused her death.
