Jamaica Crime News, Trelawny: Trelawny Police Release One Suspect – The Trelawny police say they have now released a man, who was recently taken into custody for questioning in connection with the murder of 59-year-old Valrie Thompson, farmer of Clark’s Town, whose mutilated body was discovered on a section of her farm on Thursday, February 15.
The police reported that the man who was taken into custody a day after Thompson’s body was found, was released from custody because there is no evidence to implicate him in the murder.
In the meanwhile, the police say they are still carrying out a manhunt for the main suspect, who is known to them as Clinton Davis, otherwise called “Country” and who is believed to have fled the parish following the murder and is hiding out somewhere in Darliston and Lennox Bigwood areas of Westmoreland.
Reports by the Clark’s Town police are that about 8:30 a.m. on Thursday, February 15, Thompson left her home to visit her farm which is located at a section of Clark’s Town known as Hampshire. When she did not return home that afternoon her daughter Kamara Thompson got worried and alerted her other adopted sister.
Both girls set out in search of their mother, but after calling her cellular phone several times and visiting her farm, they still could not locate her.
About 8:30 p.m. that night, two of their male cousins joined in the search and that was when the gruesome discovery was made.
Thompson’s body was discovered partially hidden by bushes on a section of her farm, the body which had multiple chop wounds, was in the nude with several of her fingers and her head chopped off.
