Security guard nabbed for John Terry's murder

No. 44 Friday, January 22, 2010

Four months after the murder of British Honourary Consul to Jamaica, John Terry, the police are reporting that they have arrested a 23 year-old security guard.
The security guard is being on reasonable suspicion of murdering the 65 year-old British Honorary Consul.
 The high command of the Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF), in a media release yesterday, said that the security guard, whose name is being withheld pending ongoing investigations, was nabbed at work.
 "The security guard was arrested this morning at his place of employment in Montego Bay, St. James. He will be questioned by detectives during the course of this week," the JCF stated.
 Mr. Terry's body was found at his house in Mount Carey, St. James on September 10, 2009. A cord and an item of clothing was found tied around his neck. A trail of bloodstains was found throughout his property.
 His murder shocked diplomats, the business community and the tourism industry in the island; at the time of his death he was working at the Half Moon Hotel in Montego Bay.
 Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) in charge of Crime, Les Green says the arrest of the security guard represents a significant development in the investigation of John Terry's murder.
 "Our detectives have worked long and exhaustive hours in putting together the evidence which led to the arrest today. We are extremely pleased with the progress we have made thus far but our work is not yet done. There are some matters still to investigate and other persons to interview, but we are well on our way," ACP Green said.
 Mr. Terry was a New Zealander and was appointed a Member of the British Empire by the Queen Elizabeth II in 1993.
