Richie Pooh, a mur­der con­vict, Lin­ton Stephen­son, was im­pli­cated in the grue­some mur­der of Khy­hymn Camp­bell, whose body was found in an igloo in a mo­tor car along Mar­shall’s Pen Road in Manch­ester on Au­gust 28.

Stephen­son was con­victed in St Thomas for felo­nious wound­ing in 1980. He was later con­victed in the Home Cir­cuit Court for mur­der in 2007 and sen­tenced to 15 years, eight of which he served be­fore he was re­leased on pa­role. He then be­came a dea­con in the Sev­enth-day Ad­ven­tist Church in Man­dev­ille. Stephen­son, who the po­lice listed as a sus­pect in Camp­bell’s mur­der, was later found dead in his home. It is sus­pected that he com­mit­ted sui­cide.

Richie Pooh, on the other hand, has been tried in the court on mul­ti­ple charges of mur­der, rob­bery with ag­gra­va­tion, wound­ing with in­tent and il­le­gal pos­ses­sion of firearm since 2005. He was sen­tenced to a to­tal of 30 years on each charge, which would be 90 years but it was to run con­cur­rently, which would be 30 years.

His re­lease has re­port­edly trig­gered a di­rec­tive from the Na­tional Se­cu­rity Coun­cil to the Min­istry of Na­tional Se­cu­rity to
