Jamaica Crime News, Westmoreland: The Westmoreland police say they have now launched a search for two men, who they believe can assist them in their investigation into the murder of a man in Longwood district, on Thursday, March 21.
The police say that the men are now being sought in connection with the murder of Shamar Gooden, otherwise called “Don-Don” of McQuarrie Drive in Hopewell, Hanover.
Gooden’s burnt body was discovered with gunshot wounds in bushes at Longwood in Whithorn, Westmoreland.
It is reported that Gooden went missing from his community on Wednesday, March 20 and his family members got very concerned. Several attempts were made to contact him by his cellular phone, but they all went unanswered.
A formal report was then made to the Hanover police, and about 9:00 a.m. on Thursday, the Westmoreland police received a telephone call informing them that a group of men were seen beating another man, at a section of Longwood district, in the Whithorn policing area.
A team from the station responded and drove to the area. Upon their arrival, they stumbled upon the partially burnt body, which was seen in a bushy area, with what appeared to be gunshot wounds to his head.
The scene was processed and the body later removed to the morgue pending a post-mortem examination.
