SCORES OF persons gathered at the Kencot Seventh-day Adventist Church yesterday to pay their last respects to slain church member and deputy security chief at the Jamaica Postal Service, 44-year-old Barrington Davis.
Brother of the deceased, Alrick, who delivered the eulogy, pointed to Davis' academic brilliance and his quest for success. He said his brother blossomed on the job at the postal service, but did not live long enough to enjoy his success.
Davis, along with a female companion, 53-year-old Patricia Lurmot-Barnswell, were abducted from his St John's Heights home in St Catherine on August 29. The bodies of the two were found about two weeks later in a cane field in Innswood, St Catherine. It is believed that the two were shot and killed and their bodies dumped in the area.
