Deacon sought in relation to murder of Manchester woman, found dead
Linton Stephenson, the man who was being sought in connection with the death of the woman whose mutilated body was found in an igloo in a car along Winston Jones Highway in Manchester last week, has been found dead.
His decomposed body was found late Thursday afternoon at his house in Manchester. This was disclosed by Superintendent Wayne Cameron, head of the Manchester Police.
The 59 year-old man was a deacon at the Mandeville Seventh Day Adventist Church in Manchester.
Stephenson was the prime suspect in connection with the murder of 25 year-old Khyhymn Campbell, who was a student at Northern Caribbean University.
He was named as the suspect after the police raided his home and found a bloody knife and bloodstains inside the house.
Ms Campbell is the daughter of Dr. Amos Campbell, the pastor of True Vine True Holiness Church in Mandeville.
An investigation has been launched into the shooting death of a Clarendon-based motor vehicle examiner by a police constable on Wednesday night.
The dead man has been identified as 42-year-old Navardo Ford, of Chateau Road in May Pen, Clarendon. The incident is reported to be the end result of a love triangle.
The May Pen police report that about 11:35 pm, the cop transported a female companion to her home in the parish. As the female got out of the vehicle the policeman was driving, Ford drove onto the scene.
Ford is reported to have gotten very incensed, jumped from his vehicle and accosted the female. Police report that Ford began slapping the woman after an argument developed between them. While in the process of dragging her towards his vehicle, the cop is said to have intervened.
Ford is further reported to have attempted to reach for his licensed firearm, but the cop was quicker on the draw and opened fire in the direction of Ford and the woman. Ford was reportedly hit several times in his upper body and the female suffered a minor injury after being grazed by a bullet.
Ford and the wounded female were taken to the May Pen Hospital, where he was pronounced dead, while the female was treated and released.
Investigators from the Independent Commission of Investigation (INDECOM) are carrying out an investigation surrounding this latest shooting.
