DEAD: Makessie Campbell...

INSTEAD of celebrating the birthday of St Joseph resident Makessie Campbell today, the family of the 21-year-old graduate of the Military Led Academic Training Programme (MILAT) will be making funeral arrangements.

Campbell, who would have turned 22 today, was found dead at McLean Street, St Joseph at 8 am on Sunday, with a bottle containing a poisonous substance next to his body. An autopsy done yesterday at the Forensic Science Centre in St James confirmed death was caused by multiple organ failure due to poisoning.

Relatives told Newsday they remain baffled at Campbell’s death. “We have no idea why something like this has happened,” said Campbell’s sister Melinda Campbell. She said she was the last person in the family to speak with him before he was found dead.

Campbell told Newsday the last time she spoke with her brother was last week Thursday. They spoke on the phone, right after he graduated from the military academy. They made arrangements to meet on Saturday to attend a sports and family day together.

Campbell said she tried contacting him on Friday and Saturday but to no avail, until the family was told that his body had been found.

Bernadette Campbell, the deceased man’s mother, said he was the seventh of her eight children and grew up at the Rainbow Rescue Children’s Home, because he had a troubled childhood. Relatives also said Campbell was a well-educated and athletic person.

He was a footballer who played for both his school Mucurapo West Secondary School and for the Water and Sewerage Authority (WASA) football team. While they mourn his death, the family is arranging to have his funeral on Wednesday. Investigations are continuing.
