“Attacked sir by one or more persons?”


ASP Fitzroy Yearwood

“We cannot verify how many persons attacked him, but we know that he had two large cut wounds to the body that we believe may have caused his death.”

“Has the police been able to gather any information to determine whether his life had been threatened before or that he had any run-ins with the law, anything?”


ASP Fitzroy Yearwood

“Duane, I haven’t received any update from the initial report that they sent, but as soon as we have clarity, we will send that out because at the end of the day, it is very important for us to investigate thoroughly when it comes to murder instead of putting out what we believe.”
