  • Farmers' Found in Clarendon Are Said to Be Drug Dealers With Haitians

    Reports are emerging from investigators probing the killing of four men from St Elizabeth, whose bodies were found buried in shallow graves in a riverbed in Pennants, Clarendon on Friday, that the deceased men were involved in the drug trade.

    The deceased are blood relatives Kevon and Clinton Hutchinson of Santa Cruz, and Shawn Thompson and Alwin Griffiths, both of Schoolfield near Malvern.

    Indications are that one of the four men has been definitely identified as having been involved in the guns for drugs trade with Haiti, and the others were believed to be part of a criminal enterprise along the same line of operation.

    In fact, it has been reported that one of the four men actually told his spouse that he may not return from the trip that they made earlier this month.

    As fate would have it, they went missing and were reported as such on April 15 and 16, and the car they had driven was found in the Foga Road area of Four Paths, Clarendon over a week ago, with the key in the ignition and the doors open.

    On Friday, the stark realities hit home when their partially decomposed bodies were fished from shallow graves in the murky waters on the banks of the Thomas River in Pennants, Clarendon.

    Investigators believe the men were killed elsewhere after being lured to a destination, then buried in Pennants.

    No spent shells were discovered near the scene of the burial, which strengthened the theory that the men were killed elsewhere. As a result, the police have been combing the surroundings near the burial site to establish if any other bodies are there on account of the area being generally used as a site to conceal murderous activities.

    A group of students who were turned away from school in St Mary reportedly spent hours frolicking at a river.

    Residents said that it took the intervention of the police to end the river party, a claim which Jefferton Meeks, vice-principal of the school from which the students were reportedly turned away, denied.

    According to a resident, the students were barred from entering the school compound because they were not wearing the correct school attire.

    "A bare tings dem gwaan with in the water," a resident said. "You wa see how the school official dem crawl pon dem belly like ninja to go find dem. Yuh can imagine how shame the parents were when dem collect dem kids," she said.

    However, school authorities quickly rubbished the claims made by the residents, stating that there was no such incident.

    "Where did you hear all of that information from? Nothing about it is true," said the vice-principal.

    The Gayle police, however, confirmed the incident.

    An 85-year-old woman was killed in a nasty motor vehicle crash in the Bog Walk Gorge in St Catherine on Wednesday.

    The deceased has been identified as Imogene Hamilton of Buena Vista, Linstead, St Catherine.

    Reports are that at about 11:00 p.m., a 2001 white Toyota Town Ace motor truck that was being driven by a 63-years-old farmer of Buena Vista, and a white Isuzu motor truck, were travelling in opposite directions along the Bog Walk Gorge.

    On reaching the vicinity of ‘Ribbits corner’, the driver of the Isuzu motor truck reportedly failed to keep to the left of the roadway and ended up in the path of the Toyota Town Ace, causing a head-on collision, resulting in the Isuzu motor truck plunging into the riverbed.

    Hamilton, who was one of four passengers in the Toyota Town Ace, received injuries and was taken to the Linstead Hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

    The other persons who sustained injuries were admitted to the hospita

  • Woman beats student before high school in Portmore

    The Bridgeport police are yet to make an arrest in a case where an adult female reportedly fought a 15-year-old student of Bridgeport High School during a brawl outside the institution earlier this week.

    "The police are aware of the incident, a report was made on April 23rd by the girl's father. No arrests have been made because the police are still doing the work, the file is not yet completed, we need more statements and we haven't gotten the medical report," an officer told Loop reporter Claude Mills on Thursday.

    Reports are that a fracas broke out at the school between the 15-year-old grade 9 student and another student from grade 10 over a Facebook post that was made by the 15-year-old about a recent beach trip.

    The disparaging comment by the girl suggested that: "the only somebody else pon the beach trip poster look good a Hennessy”, and the offended parties reacted negatively to the remark, resulting in a flutter of heated exchanges.

    Then an adult, believed to have been a relative of the grade 10 student, reportedly sent lewd and threatening Whatsapp messages to the grade 9 student, and upped the ante by ambushing the young student who was on the afternoon shift on Monday afternoon. The result was a hair-pulling, punch-throwing confrontation that drew a large crowd.

    A video making the rounds on social media showed the woman punching the student and then sitting on top of the girl in the middle of the road.

    Checks with the institution did not reveal much, as the Principal, Beverly Harris, was out of office, and the Vice-Principal, Marcia Palmer, was said to be unable to divulge any details to the media.

    However, Loop News understands that three students were suspended for 10 days for their roles in the brawl, including the 15-year-old and a relative who had come to her defence, as well as the grade 10 student.
