The Lawyer and the Crime Scene

Whilst local law enforcement in Barbados is not publicly speaking about the circumstances surrounding the violent deaths of attorney Allison Lovell, her contractor husband, and their two young children, Alexander 10, and Abriel 12, the facts and the evidence speak for themselves. We assume that the authorities will do their best to characterise the deaths as suicide, the truth appears to be that it was a homicide.

A neighbor stated that there was a powerful explosion, followed by a fire; what is critical to the case is the fact that he said the explosion occurred on the second floor, where the family has their bedrooms. This would rule out a firebomb thrown into the ground floor, and also rule out arson. 

The time-line has the explosion happening just after 0300 local time, as the first report of a fire came in at 0330, according to fire officials who responded. Given that it is doubtful that person or persons unknown stole into the house in the dead of night, and were able to plant a bomb and retreat, without being discovered, leads one to opine that a bomb, with a time-release, was planted in the house earlier, when the occupants were not at home.

Finally, a close examination of the multiple times, over a period several years, that Allison Lovell promised the victim repayment, based upon some phantom event that was supposed to happen, and didn't deliver, might agitate the victim, or his associates, enough to take the laws into their own hands. Alternatively, if Ms. Lovell had personal knowledge of specific attorney misconduct that she might use to mitigate her sentence through cooperation with the authorities, that could have been the cause of her untimely death, and that of her unfortunate family.

Who in Barbados has the expertise to build an explosive device, and covertly plant it in a home, without being discovered?
