St James, Jamaica (McKoy’s, News) – St James High Student Raped and Brutally Stabbed: a pall of gloom is now surrounding the community of Granville in the parish of St James, this following the gruesome stabbing to death of a 14-year-old girl in the community on Friday night, February 16.

The victim has been identified has Tianna Clarke, a 14-year-old eighth-grade student who attends St James High school in Montego Bay.

The Mckoy’s News team went to the community and spoke with several family members including Valisha Vidal, mother of the slain teenager.

According to the traumatized mother, Tianna came to her shortly after 8:00 p.m., on Friday and asked her for some money to help her to purchase a cup soup at a neighbouring shop.

According to the mother, she gave the money to her daughter and that was the last time she saw or heard from her.

She stated that after she discovered that it was getting late and Tianna did not return, she thought she had gone to her father’s house, which she normally does.

It was not until Saturday morning when the child’s father came to her house to inquire about her that she got worried about her missing daughter.

Vidal immediately went to the Granville police station to report that the child was missing, while on her way back from the police station, a close friend informed her that residents had stumbled upon a body in an abandoned building close to her house.

The police were summoned and upon arrival, they discovered the child lying in a pool of blood, in a nude state with multiple stab wounds all over her body.

Ms Vidal told Mckoy’s News that her daughter was a well-behaved girl and very quiet. She further stated that she was an asthmatic patient so she is not the one to linger on the road at nights.
