ACP Chester Williams Says SSG Not Responsible for Shiny’s Murder

Is the murder of Gerald ‘Shiny’ Tillett related to the Saturday afternoon murder of Michael Wallace?  There seems to be a bit of confusion as to whether or not there is a nexus between the two incidents.  On Monday, Assistant Commissioner of Police Edward Broaster went on record to say that they are indeed linked.  Today, however, Eastern Division South Commander ACP Chester Williams set out to clarify any ambiguity as it concerns the two incidents.

“I want to say clearly that from what we have been made to understand, South Side—particularly the Wallace brothers and the Underwood brothers—have absolutely nothing to do with Gerald Tillett’s death. From what we have been made to understand there is no connection between Gerald Tillett’s murder and those individuals. And I believe that the police have the person who is responsible for that murder at prison and I would want that those persons who are trying to be out there to avenge Gerald Tillett’s death to understand that the wheels of justice has began, allow it to take its course rather than to be out there lurking after people and trying to kill people innocently for what they did not do.”

“Mister Williams this is a different information we are getting from you as well as ACP Broaster who earlier in the week gave us an interview and it is on record where he says that there is a link between that shooting that happened over the weekend and Gerald Tillett’s death. He also mentioned too that he had passed on intelligence to you and then whatever actions need to be taken from there will be taken by you.”

“Mister Broaster is not wrong to say that, if you listen to what I said. I am saying that there is no connection between Gerald Tillett’s murder and the Wallace brother and the Underwood brothers, but for some reason or the other, elements from George Street may think that there is some connection and that could be the reason why they went and ambushed the Wallace brothers. And that’s why I am saying here now that there is no nexus between them. But what Broaster is saying is not wrong; that could be the reason why they went after them because they believe that the Wallace brothers and the Underwood brothers may have something to do with Gerald Tillett’s death and I am saying now that that’s not the case.”
