FOR­MER MAG­IS­TRATE Theodore Wal­cott has died.

Wal­cott, 78, of Poin­set­tia Drive, West Ter­race, St James, passed on last week Wed­nes­day at a re­tire­ment home. The late at­tor­ney stud­ied law in Eng­land and re­turned to Bar­ba­dos, where he was ap­pointed to the bench in the late 1970s.

Among his more no­table cases was the coro­ner’s in­quest into the death of Grant­ley Farmer, who died at the hands of po­lice. Fol­low­ing his re­tire­ment from the bench in the 1990s Wal­cott went into pri­vate prac­tice and re­tired last De­cem­ber.

He leaves to mourn three sons, his broth­ers and sis­ters and close friends for­mer justice Leroy In­niss, QC, and Pamella May­ers.

Ar­range­ments for his fu­neral are to be an­nounced later. (AC)
