Police said that further murder charges are likely to be laid against 23-year-old Delano Forbes after investigations have led them to believe he was responsible for three unsolved killings.
Forbes is on remand at Her Majesty’s Prison for allegedly breaking into and stealing items from the Swetes home of Wilfred “Bongo” Williams. Forbes has since been charged with Williams’ murder.
The body of the deceased was found stuffed in an outside latrine, days after he was reported missing.
At a press conference held at Police Headquarters yesterday to update the public on the status of their investigation into Williams’ killing, Everton Jeffers, acting deputy commissioner of police, said that Forbes is being investigated for the homicides, dating back to 2015.
“During the investigation, information received led to a search of the suspect’s place of abode, and two small bottles of what appeared to be blood was found. There are potentially three other homicides which are being investigated and additional murder charges may be laid against the accused in the coming days,” Jeffers revealed.
The senior police officer said that police are awaiting laboratory testing to determine the origin of the blood found at Forbes’ home.
He stated that those three homicide victims are Sean Henry who was discovered on May 10, 2017, in an abandoned house in the city with a slash to his throat and Lisue “Dirty” Samuel whose body was discovered on February 21, 2017, outside the Industrial School for the Blind, on lower All Saints Road. Samuel’s throat had also been slashed.
There was not much information given on the third victim who Jeffers said was found decomposed sometime in 2015, in the vicinity of Country Pond.
“The police will be reviewing the evidence and statements collected so far and will update the public within the next week or so,” Jeffers said while thanking the public for their continued support.
He urged anyone who may have information that could lead to the prosecution of person or persons involved in these homicides or any other crimes to contact the Criminal Investigation Department at 462-3913 or 3914.
