Jamaica Crime News, St James: 16-year-old, Jayshenel Gordon, a female student who attended the Herbert Morrison High School in Montego Bay, St James and her mother, were murdered at their home in the Rosemount community on Sunday morning, September 23.

Inspector Francis who is in Charge of the Mount Salem Police Station visited the murder scene and appealed to community members that whenever residents notice anything irregular taking place in their communities, they should let the police know.

He pointed out that such a gruesome killing should not have taken place and residents need to start getting more involved whenever they see domestic disputes taking place.

The 16-year-old, fourth form student and her mother Dionne Smith, 45-year-old service station supervisor of Rosemount, were brutally slaughtered by her step-father, Fabian Lyewsang, security guard, who fled the scene immediately after committing the gruesome act.
