Nassau, Bahamas — Breaking News unconfirmed reports coming into our news desk tonight confirm the 261st murdered victim has been identified. Sources close to the investigation tell us the victim is former Gaming Board employee, Teron “Limey” Fowler.
Now you would remember reports how Fowler after being fired by the Gaming Board, went to the United States and was convicted on drug charges.
In September of 2010, Sources in the ministry of foreign affairs had confirmed to BP, the former inspector, who was sentenced to 70 months on April 30th, 2008 by a court in Miami on drug charges, has been extradited back to the Bahamas to finish serving his time at Her Majesty’s Prison in Fox Hill.
Fowler, 33 years-old at the time of his conviction, was arrested on a sealed indictment last November when he traveled to Miami on a false passport. That indictment alleged a drug conspiracy that began in November 2006 and ended on December 26, 2006.
According to our sources, Fowler was transferred from the USA that year where he has served less than two-third of his sentence. The exchange programme has been a long-term treaty between the US and the Bahamas.
Yesterday, detectives made a bizarre discovery after putting out a car fire in the Hanna Road section of Eastern New Providence, nearby the residence of the former Governor General.
According to police reports, sometime around 3:45 pm on Monday 18th July, 2011, police received information that a car was on fire in the area. Fire personnel responded and on completion of extinguishing the blaze discovered a body burned beyond recognition inside a vehicle.
Perhaps on good behaviour sources tell us he was released from HMP sometime this year.
