On Thursday, September 8, 2016, a stabbing incident in a warehouse occurred which claimed the life of 28 year old Elton Polonio. Accused was a 32 year old chef and fisherman, Linden Lindsi Kelly, a resident of the San Pedrito area, San Pedro Town. Since the incident, Kelly has been imprisoned.

On September 9, 2016, Dr. Estradabran conducted a post mortem on the body of Polonio and concluded that he died due to internal and external bleeding as a consequence of stab wounds to the chest. According to police reports, Polonio was seen with stab wounds to the left side of his neck, and cut wounds to the left side of his chest and one to the right hand.

Kelly was brought before Chief Magistrate Anne Marie Smith on April 19, 2017. Kelly, represented by Oscar Selgado, was told he will have to stand trial at the Supreme Court for the murder of Polonio in the June session.

Kelly was asked if he had any alibi witnesses on his behalf but he said he didn’t. Prosecutor Cpl. Kennard Clark is relying on several witness statements and a police statement along with a recorded police interview where Kelly admitted to stabbing Polonio and told them that he used a fillet knife.
