Coroner’s inquest into the death of nightclub-shooting victim is adjourned until undetermined autopsy date

he coroner’s inquest into the death of Kevin Vaccannie commenced on
Thursday, May 23, with the viewing of the body by a six-member jury.
Reports say the inquest was carried out by Coroner Dexter Wason at Straffies
Funeral Home, at 8:30 a.m. that day, after the body was identified by the
victim’s mother, a resident of Yorks.

However, the matter was adjourned sine die until a date can be set for a post
mortem examination to determine his cause of death, which is the next stage
in this process.
When that will take place is uncertain, as sources say there are several
outstanding autopsies to be completed first.
Vaccannie was gunned down at his mother’s place of business, the Asylum
Nightclub on Independence Drive, in the early hours of Wednesday, May 15.
It is alleged that he had received a single gunshot wound in the area near his
right hip. The young man, aged 24 years, was rushed to the hospital but
was pronounced dead at 5:25 a.m.

Another victim, Darien Rover, is reportedly nursing gunshot wounds to his
abdomen, but is in stable condition having undergone emergency surgery.
A $10,000 reward has been offered for information that will assist law
enforcement in solving this or any other of the country’s recent murders.
