Police in the Eastern Caribbean island of Barbados are reporting a major breakthrough in their investigations into the murder of 49-year-old British businessman Steven Weare, who was reported missing last month.
Lawmen have also confirmed that the body of a British man, which was discovered in a remote area at Melverton, St George on Friday, September 1, was Weare’s.
