POLICE Commissioner Clayton Fernander said police have been unable to access the phone of an American woman who went missing last month.

Taylor Casey’s phone was retrieved from the water. The 41-year-old was last seen in the Paradise Island area on June 19. Her relatives said she was in the country for the Sirvanada Ashram Yoga Retreat. Yoga Retreat Bahamas said her disappearance was noticed on June 20 when she failed to attend morning classes.

During a press conference Commissioner Fernander said that even with US partners’ help, officials have had problems getting into the phone and suspect its submergence in water is making the challenge greater.

Colette Seymour, Ms Casey’s mother, recently said she wants local police to hand over her daughter’s phone.

Although Ms Casey’s family have repeatedly expressed a lack of confidence in how local authorities are handling the matter, Commissioner Fernander suggested otherwise.

He added: “We agreed that we would take the family to the site. They wanted to see the site, and

they were taken to that area with the investigators, and they were pointed out certain things which they viewed and even themselves, took a look around to see whatever they could have done to assist.”

Commissioner Fernander said officials checked the hospital, the general Paradise Island area, and other areas with cameras and CCTVs.

Just give the damn iPhone to the FBI.

Apple long ago gave US security and intelligence agencies a back door through which access could be gained to data stored on all of its products, including iPhones. This back door is built into every Apple product in exchange for its right to have FCC approved access to the internet and the networks of Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile and many other ISP and mobile service providers.

As good as any in the world you say? And they’ll find this missing woman and solve her murder because thats what they do..? Since when?? Sure I’m thinking it must be common place then for folks in the UK, Canada & the US as it is here then, to have one’s PD run by it’s own gang of murderous conspirators, drug dealers and the like? Robbing our nation’s banks and businesses, killing off their rivals and witnesses to their crimes? And which ones are as corrupt as ours or do we win that prize too? Commissioners, PD Chiefs, Heads of Investigations all under suspicion but are being “investigated” internally??

Are these others as lucky as our RBP? To be protected by their own government,perhaps because they know where all the skeletons are hidden?

Do all these others have their own gov’t build an import/export warehousing designed w/pertinent systems, ie. the means by which they and their ministerial co-conspirators will secretively funnel their own money and illegal goods for laundering,(diamonds come to mind), illegal drugs for distribution…? I think we win this booby prize…again

Our real problem is corrupt Davis himself. Not only does he support and promote abusive legislation and regulations as a means of getting whatever he and his equally corrupt cronies want, but he also endorses thuggery to rule the people.

Make no mistake about it, law enforcement officials, including tax collector officials, all take their cue from corrupt Davis's known great penchant for unleashing thuggery in order to rule over the people to achieve his ends. In seeing what the very demonicTyrant Minnis was able to get away with as PM, corrupt Davis has adopted and now promotes a heavy-handed and often unlawful way of policing and ruling the people.

Birdie, honestly. This mother did not give birth to the thousands of missing persons in the US, she gave birth to Taylor. As happens sometimes with families who face these kinds of difficulties they might go on to develop or support larger causes.

For the moment, her concern is her child and like any mother human or animal, she will fight to the death for her child
