Just when it looked as if Trelawny was doing so well, the inevitable occurred on Saturday.
The bullet riddled body of an unidentified man was found at about 11am Saturday morning in Duanvale.
No motive has been established for the killing and up to the time of writing, the identity of the man was yet to be ascertained.
A few hours later, at about 4:10am, it was the community of Bounty Hall.
24-year old hotel worker Jonathan Crosdale aka “Big Nish,” of Bounty Hall, was shot by armed gunmen who kicked open the door of a house that he occupied with his spouse and her 4 children.
He was taken to hospital where he was pronounced dead.
The Trelawny Police are investigating these first two homicides in Trelawny for the 2018 calendar year. Last year (2017), the parish recorded 21 murders, which was 5 less than the 26 murders recorded in 2016.
