Evidence had been given in the enquiry that up to 300 gunmen were in Tivoli Gardens in May 2010 to defend Coke who was wanted in the US at the time on drugs and gunrunning charges.

Brown Ellis testified also that three of the bodies recovered belonged to women she identified as Gloria Smith, Petrina Edwards and Carlene McKenzie.

“I came to know these women like sisters; I was with them so long,” said Brown Ellis, referring to the forensic processing and identification process.
