Jamaica Breaking News, Clarendon: The Clarendon police have confirmed that several bodies believing to be males and could be those of five men who went missing from the parish of St Elizabeth last week, were discovered in three Shallow Graves in the parish on Friday morning, April 27.
Up to news time, the investigators were still gathered at the scene and were awaiting a special team of Forensic Police to start exhuming the bodies.
Reports are that shortly after 7:00 a.m. on Friday, residents living at a section of the parish known as Pennant, stumbled upon the three shallow graves at a bushy section of the community.
The police were summoned and upon arrival, they discovered that all three shallow graves contained dead bodies which were in decomposing states.
One investigator told our news team that, the bodies could be those of four men who recently went missing after they left the Parish of St Elizabeth to transact business in Clarendon.
It is reported that the missing men, Kevon and Clinton Hutchinson who are cousins from Rocky Hill District in St Elizabeth and Shawn Thompson along with Alwyn Griffiths both of Schoolfield in Malvern, St Elizabeth went missing on April 15.
Reports are that, all four men along with a fifth man whose identity is not yet known rented a motor car and left for a location in Clarendon.
The vehicle was later found abandoned along the Foga main road in Four Path Clarendon with the keys still in the ignition.
Police at the scene say they now have strong belief that the bodies in the shallow graves could well be those of the missing men.
