The veteran public commentator was found lying in a pool of blood at his home in Red Hills, St. Andrew on Wednesday, January 18.

It was suspected that Mr. Abrahams had fallen from his wheelchair.

However, in subsequent developments the police say the pathologist concluded that the injuries that led to his death were deliberately inflicted.

This, led to the police to treat Abrahams death as a case of murder.
