1 Held for Leeroy Haylock Murder

Leeroy Haylock

On Friday, we reported on the murder of the Leeroy Haylock which happened in San Pedro. The twenty-two-year-old was out socializing with friends when he was slashed to the throat and left for dead in a bushy, empty lot in the north end of the island.  According to reports, Haylock was lured to the area where a fight ensued and he was killed. Police arrived on the scene shortly after to find the youth hemorrhaging to death. Haylock was knifed multiple times to the abdomen, chest, back and hands. It was an orchestrated crime that ended the life of the labourer who had only been living on the island for two months.  Today, police said there is no motive at this time for the murder, but one person has been detained.
