The body of a man believing to be that of a church deacon who was being sought for the murder of a female in the parish of Manchester, two weeks ago, was discovered in a house at Broom Piece District, in Manchester on Thursday afternoon, September 6th.
The Manchester police have confirmed that a body was discovered, but they say they are unable to say if it is that of 59 years old, Seventh Day Adventist, Deacon, Linton Stephenson, otherwise called ” Gary “.
Stephenson who is an active Deacon at the Mandeville, Seventh Day Adventist Church, was being sought in connection with the murder of 25-year-old, Khyhymn Campbell, in late August.
Campbell’s body was discovered by the police in an Igloo, which was placed on the rear seat of a motor car, parked along a section of the roadway in the parish.
Following the discovery of the body, the Manchester police launched an investigation and discovered that Stephenson was locked in a common-law relationship with Campbell, which went sour.
Since then several appeals have been made by the police and members of the Seventh Day Adventist faith, to turn himself over to the law.
