ST ELIZABETH, Jamaica — Police in St Elizabeth have reportedly captured a man believed to be Omar Collymore, the accused co-conspirator in the murder of his wife Simone Campbell-Collymore and Winston Watson, a source close to the family informed OBSERVER ONLINE this morning.

The lawmen said the man was taken from a guesthouse in the parish around 3:00 am. He was reportedly in possession of a large sum of cash.

The capture comes on the heels of a warrant issued on Tuesday for Collymore's arrest.

According to media reports on January 2, Campbell-Collymore, a businesswoman, was travelling in a taxi on Stanley Terrace in Red Hills, St Andrew, when gunmen opened fire, hitting her and Walters -- the driver of the taxi.

Both reportedly died on the spot.

The police on Tuesday said after “intensive investigations”, Collymore and others have been identified as co-conspirators in the double murder.

The police also revealed in the statement that two people are already in custody in connection with the double murder and other suspects are being sought for questioning.
