The Jamaica Constabulary Force says its investigators are following strong leads in the deadly attacks on six homeless men.

The men were attacked at various parts of Kingston and St. Andrew between last night and this morning.

Four of the six homeless men have been killed. 

Abka Fitz-Henley reports.


The other two homeless men are in hospital this afternoon battling for life.

The  men were attacked and chopped on various parts of their bodies.

One of the victim’s head was almost severed.

The killings have generated shock waves across the country.

Head of the JCF’s Corporate Communications Unit, Senior Superintendent Stephanie Lindsay, says the Police are following a number of strong leads as they seek to find out who carried out the vicious crimes.

But, SSP Lindsay says no clear suspect has yet been identified.

It’s understood that one of the theories being pursued by the Police is that the acts of savagery may’ve been perpetrated by an individual or individuals who have mental issues and are known to law enforcement.

SSP Lindsay says detectives are this afternoon intensifying their investigation.

The CCU boss says the process of identifying the homeless men who were attacked is underway.

And, SSP Lindsay gave details on where the attacks took place.
