A chilling and bizarre series of machete attacks in the corporate area has left four homeless men dead. Two others are in hospital. All of them suffered similar injuries- a chop wound to the head. The unusual spate of events has jolted citizens and left the Jamaica Constabulary Force searching for clues that could aid them in solving the heinous crimes.
The homeless men were attacked in separate incidents across the city before day broke. Head of the Constabulary’s Corporate Communications Unit, Senior Superintendent Stephanie Lindsay says the murder scenes were spread across three Police divisions.
In the Kingston Central Police division the bodies of three dead homeless men with chop wounds were discovered in the vicinity of Sutton Street and Hanover street. The next discovery in the Kingston Western division was on Mother White bridge which is located on Spanish town road near Collie Smith drive.
The third incident found the attacker or attackers back on Constant spring road where a victim was found at Twin Gates plaza in the St. Andrew Central police division. The fourth victim was found just below Twin Gates plaza along Derrymore road. SSP Lindsay is describing the series of targeted attacks as a ‘crazy morning.’
She’s calling on citizens who may’ve seen anything to report it to the Police.
SSP Lindsay is also appealing to business operators and homeowners with CCTV cameras in these areas to assist them. She says the investigators plan to rely on technology in probing the series of murders.
