SAVANNAH CROSS, Clarendon — The mood among the residents of the district of Savannah Cross in Clarendon was a mixture of sadness and anger as they mourned the loss of one who they described as a promising young man.
The community was thrown in a tizzy when it discovered that 25-year-old Andre Edwards also called 'Tallman' was brutally beaten to death by his neighbour.
Edwards was remembered as a peace loving, hardworking individual who was a shining example to youngsters in the community.
"Tallman lived good with everybody. Nobody in this district would never like to see a fingernail get hurt on him" Denford Williams a Savannah Cross resident said this morning.
Others residents had less kind words for his attacker, who was mobbed and killed for what they described as a brutal attack on Edwards.
"Him beg the man $100 and the man tell him him don't have no money. And him beat the man to death with a shovel," one resident told the Jamaica Observer.
The May Pen police are investigating both deaths.
