Barrington Moss drowns; police say no signs of foul play


The results of a post-mortem conducted on the body of San Pedro resident 50-year-old Barrington Moss revealed that his death was due to drowning. His lifeless body was found on Saturday, June 27th, off the west coast of Caye Caulker near the area known as The Split.

At the time of the discovery, the body could not be identified. His identity was confirmed after he was transported to Belize City for a post-mortem. According to a report, on Monday, June 29th, a post-mortem examination was conducted on Moss’s body. After the examination, his death was certified due to asphyxia/inhalation of fluid, consistent with drowning.

Moss was originally from the Belize City area but had been living in San Pedro, where he worked as a security guard. Those who knew him shared with The San Pedro Sun that Moss was a very friendly person and was always in a good mood. Those same people said that Moss was a good swimmer, so they are still trying to understand what happened on Saturday.

Moss is survived by a host of family and friends, and will be buried later this week on the mainland.
