Three held for doc­tor’s killing

The Star (Jamaica) - - FRONT PAGE -

Three sus­pects were ar­rested yes­ter­day in con­nec­tion with last week’s killing of med­i­cal doc­tor Martin Gar­wood, who was found dead at his home.

Re­ports are that fol­low­ing in­ves­ti­ga­tions, po­lice in­ter­cepted a ve­hi­cle with the three men aboard and sub­se­quently ar­rested them. Their iden­ti­ties are be­ing with­held pend­ing fur­ther in­ves­ti­ga­tions.

Gar­wood’s body was found at his home on Kings Av­enue in Bar­bican, St An­drew, on Oc­to­ber 26. Gar­wood, 40, did not turn up for work on the morn­ing of Oc­to­ber 27. This prompted co­work­ers to go to his home in search of him, where they saw blood at the premises and alerted the po­lice.

Su­per­in­ten­dent Stephanie Lind­say, who is charge of the com­mu­ni­ca­tion arm of t he Ja­maica Con­stab­u­lary Force, told THE STAR that the po­lice be­lieve that they have made a big break­through in the case. “The in­ves­ti­ga­tors are go­ing through the nec- es­sary process, and by to­mor­row (to­day) they should be able to make more in­for­ma­tion avail­able to the pub­lic,” she told THE STAR.

Gar­wood was the team doc­tor for the Ja­maican na­tional youth foot­ball team.
