The police are again appealing to members of the public, this time in providing information that can lead to the killer(s) of Carlos Ollivierre whose bloodied body was discovered on Thursday.
Everton Jeffers, Deputy Commissioner of Police, told OBSERVER media yesterday that it is believed someone may have information that could lead them directly to the person(s) who inflicted several stab wounds to 51-year-old Ollivierre who was a farmer.
“Someone must have seen something as it pertains to that murder at Jonas Road, we are asking that person or those persons if they have any leads regardless of how simple it might be, that they get in touch with the closest police station or the Criminal Investigation Department at 462-3913 or 14, or to call 464-5599, that’s the superintendent,” Jeffers said.
The Golden Grove man, who was also known as “Kung-Fu” or “Caneman,” was discovered where he plied his trade at approximately 8 p.m. by family members who had gone in search of him because he had not returned home at his customary time.
Lawmen believe that the carpenter turned farmer, who migrated to Antigua and Barbuda from his native St. Vincent and the Grenadines, was killed during a robbery that went wrong.
Police said the farmer was found with what appeared to be multiple stab wounds to the upper back and right forearm.
In thanking the public for its support in recapturing triple murder accused
Delano Forbes, who was taken back into custody earlier this month after he absconded from police custody for almost a month, Jeffers appealed for further assistance.
“Let me thank the public for their assistance in terms of the information that they have passed on to the police in terms of different times that the accused Delano Forbes was seen. We want to thank them for their support,” he said.
Meanwhile, residents and commuters reported seeing Ollivierre after 4 p.m. before learning he had been killed.
The farmer planted cane, coconuts, potatoes, yams, dasheen, bananas, corn and tomatoes at his Jonas Road farm.
