A child who was allegedly lured away and kidnapped by his mother’s ex-boyfriend 3 days ago was found dead this evening. The lifeless body of 8-year-old Galen Buchanan otherwise called Nick of Richie Lane off Spanish Town Road was found in an area near Manley Meadows in the Rockfort area.
Allegations are that Nick’s mother ended a very violent relationship with Omar Brown, the prime suspect. Mr. Brown reportedly destroyed everything in the home he shared with Nick’s mother before he lured the boy away from his father’s home by promising him ice cream. An alarm was raised and he was reported as being kidnapped to the police. However, sources have said that the police were slow to act and as a result, a search was launched by family and friends.
The search resulted in the body of the child being found in a section of the community of Rockfort a few hours ago. Omar Brown is still at large.
