Death of Key Witness in St James Doubled Murder Could Affected Mario Deane Case  

Jamaica Crime News, Montego Bay: Our new team has learnt that one of the victims who was shot and killed in the Spring Mount area on Friday, April 20 was, in fact, the Key witness for the prosecution bench against three Police officers in the Mario Deane case.

The dead witness Fahdeal Ferguson, otherwise called “Street Man’ 24-year-old unemployed of Dam Road, was shot and killed by men wearing unmarked ballistic vests along with Odaine Graham 23-year-old, Mason also of Dam Road in Spring Mount.

Ferguson was the witness in the case where 50-year-old Corporal Elaine Stewart, 27-year-old, District Constable Marlon Grant and 32-year-old District Constable Juliana Clevon, were all charged by the Independent Commission of Investigation with Manslaughter, Perverting the course of Justice and Misconduct in Public Office.

Their arrest arose from an incident at the Barnett Street police lockup in Montego Bay, St James on Sunday, August 3, 2014, where Mario Deane was taken into custody for a simple ganja spliff.

While in lockup he was reportedly beaten by other inmates and died three days later at the Cornwall Regional Hospital after suffering severe head injuries.

Attorney-at-law Martyn Thomas is now concerned with the death of the key witness and indicated that if the case is transferred to the Circuit Court over the next few days, Ferguson’s death might affect the defense case.

Report are that shortly after 8:00 a.m. on Friday, Ferguson, the other deceased and the two other victims were at an event being held at a shop in Dam Road in Spring Mount.

It is further reported that a dark-colored motor car traveling from the directions of John’s Hall drove to the area.

On reaching in close proximity to the crowd, the vehicle stopped and three men wearing unmarked ballistic vests alighted with high-powered weapons. The men opened fire on the patrons who ran in various directions in a bid to save their lives and the gunmen later escaped in the said motor car which sped away in the opposite direction from which it came.

The Spring Mount Police were summoned and upon arrival, all three men were found suffering from gunshot wounds and they were transported to the Cornwall Regional Hospital where Ferguson and Graham were pronounced dead and the other man admitted in critical condition.
