Man dies after acid attack
A man who was severely injured when acid was thrown on 80 percent of his body in June died earlier this week, police have confirmed.
Chief Superintendent Solomon Cash, head of the Central Detective Unit, said investigators are waiting for autopsy results to see if William Curtis Thompson’s death is attributable to the acid attack.
If a link is established, Thompson could become the country’s 106th murder victim of 2017 and charges against his widow could be upgraded, Cash said.
Prosecutors allege that Robinette Thompson, 63, snapped during a domestic dispute between June 3 and 4 during the Sir Randol Fawkes Labor Day holiday weekend.
Mrs. Thompson was charged with attempted murder.
