Public help needed to solve latest killings


No suspects have been identified in the recent homicides of two men who were tied up and killed.

Lawmen, up to yesterday, were still probing the deaths of Carlton Charles and Samuel Emmanuel Joseph whose bodies were both discovered days apart in neighbouring communities with their hands and legs bound.

Details of the likely causes of death were not revealed, however Charles, whose body was discovered in an advanced stage of decomposition, was lying in a pool of blood. Lawmen said that no blood was immediately noticeable on Joseph’s body.

An autopsy is scheduled in a couple of weeks on each body.

Police Public Relations Officer, Inspector Frankie Thomas, told OBSERVER that lawmen are following various leads, but nothing that could point them to any suspect has, as yet, materialised.

On April 15, Carlton Charles was found dead in an abandoned house on North Street.

Three days later, police were called to Bishopgate Street to investigate the death of bodybuilding enthusiast, Samuel Emmanuel Joseph, also known as “J.B.” or “Serj.”

Thomas is encouraging anyone with information that could lead police

to the killer or killers of Charles and Joseph to contact the nearest police station.
