Stevian Simmonds reports.

There’s a major development in the case of 4-men from Clarendon who were reported missing earlier this year.

Nationwide News understands that four of five bodies which were discovered last month in St Andrew have been confirmed as belonging to the men.

The bodies were found buried in shallow graves in the vicinity of Washington Gardens and the Sandy Gully.

The bodies were discovered by a team of Police investigators on May 12 this year.

The men were reported missing on April 7.

In an interview with Nationwide’s Abka Fitz-Henley this afternoon, Acting Deputy Police Commissioner in charge of Crime, Fitz Bailey, confirmed that the bodies have been identified.

Additional investigations are taking place to determine the identity of the fifth body which was found in another grave on May 12.

That grave was located beside the shallow grave in which the bodies of the 4-men from Clarendon were all found.

Acting DCP Bailey says two people have been taken into custody in connection with the investigation.

Graham was a 40-year old businessman and Bennett a 30-year old taxi operator.

While Mahtra was a 33-year old sound system operator.

Hamilton was 40-years old. His occupation is unknown.

The deceased are from the Race Course and Rocky Point areas of Clarendon.

Police reports are that on April 7 the men left Clarendon for Portmore in St Catherine about 9:30 in the morning.

An alarm was raised when relatives did not hear from them.

The Police are investigating whether the murder of the men is connected to a major drug deal which turned sour.
