Police have taken a suspect into custody for the murder of popular fashion designer, 34-year old Dexter Pottinger.

Pottinger’s decomposing body was found at his home in Yarico Place, St. Andrew last Thursday.

Police say arrangements are now being made for the suspect, who was taken into custody on Friday, to be interviewed in the presence of his attorney.

Meanwhile, the Police High Command says they did not disseminate a message that’s been circulating on social media citing them as a source.

The High Command also says the information was not released through the Corporate Communications Unit, the official information arm of the JCF.

It’s reminding people to be responsible in their use of social media and asking them not to share false or misleading information.
