Dole’s relatives want second autopsy

Rel­a­tives of Aki­ni “Dole” Adams are not sat­is­fied with the au­top­sy re­sults giv­en at the Foren­sic Sci­ence Cen­tre and are seek­ing to have a sec­ond au­top­sy done pri­vate­ly.

The au­top­sy con­duct­ed on Mon­day re­vealed that Adams died from mul­ti­ple gun­shot wounds.


There was no oth­er analy­sis giv­en to the fam­i­ly.

Speak­ing with the Guardian Me­dia, a rel­a­tive who wished not to be named said they strong­ly be­lieve that Adams was ex­e­cut­ed by po­lice of­fi­cers on Thurs­day.

Adams was shot dead on Thurs­day af­ter­noon in Sea Lots.

Po­lice say he pulled a gun on them when he and two oth­er men were ap­proached for ques­tion­ing on the mur­der of Las Cuevas gang­ster Vaughn ‘Sand­man’ Mieres, his wife and two body­guards on Thurs­day morn­ing.

Adams’ rel­a­tive said they want clo­sure and jus­tice.

“Dole has nev­er run from the po­lice. Nev­er went hid­ing and he was not a mad per­son to shoot at them ei­ther. All oth­er times he went peace­ful­ly with po­lice of­fi­cers when they would ar­rest him and take him in for ques­tion­ing,” the rel­a­tive said.

“A prop­er in­de­pen­dent au­top­sy will tell us from what an­gle he was shot from and how close range were the of­fi­cers to him when they shot him. There would al­so be gun­pow­der residue on his hands if he was hold­ing a gun but we know no residue would be found. We have to get jus­tice,” the rel­a­tive added.

The rel­a­tive said Adams’ fu­ner­al ser­vice will be held lat­er this week in Sea Lots.

How­ev­er, bur­ial will take place in Point Fortin - his orig­i­nal place of birth and where his fam­i­ly roots lie.
