BARBADOS (Naked Departure) — CHRISTOPHER HAWKESWORTH — Two years ago Christopher Hawkesworth was accused of drugs trafficking and faced extradition to the United States (it’s hard to teach an old dog new tricks). However, in a dramatic turn (no, it was not dramatic at all), all charges against him and two other men — Sean Gaskin and John Wayne Scantlebury — were dismissed and the trio released from Dodds Prisons after spending two years in maximum security, ending a ten-year extradition hearing — the longest in Barbados’ (non) legal history.
BUT WHAT MUST BE KNOWN is, THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA lost interest in that extradition case. The sluggish (non) judicial system in Barbados saved these men from being extradited. Cases are usually brought and finalized within 18 months – two years, preferably, in the United States. They got bigger fish to fry and the Hawkesworth gang, residing in a third-world country, were not worth the money or the effort, and better off where they were! They could never set foot in the USA again!
John Wayne Scantlebury has been mentioned many times on Naked Departure for being an alleged fraudster. Birds of a feather (usually) flock together. What was Hawkesworth up to and what caused him to take a bullet to the back of his head? A drug deal gone bad!
Many are saying that Christopher Hawkesworth was a big-time drug dealer. His woman, Kim, should not be surprised.

“The body of the 54-year-old resident of 29 Rock Dundo Heights, St Michael was discovered by police officers on patrol in Bakers, St Peter after five o’clock Saturday evening. Hawkesworth’s motionless body was found in the front passenger’s seat of a car parked off the road in a wooded area.
