Jamaica elite cops probing Bajan deaths


Share post:

The grisly double murder of two Barbadian men in southeast Jamaica is being investigated by that country’s elite crime department.

Acting Assistant Commissioner of Police, McArthur Sutherland, told the Sunday Sun that because of the mitigating factors surrounding the deaths of Daniel Griffith and Dario Yearwood on September 7, the matter has been referred to the Major Investigation Division (MID).

Law enforcement officers on the northern Caribbean island say their first order of business will be to determine what led to the pair being in Jamaica, and the possible motive behind the killings.

Investigations are also expected to determine if the men were killed elsewhere and their bodies transported to the area where they were found, or if the crime took place at the scene. (BA)
