SENIOR police investigators from the parishes of St Elizabeth, St Ann and Trelawny are probing the murders of three St Elizabeth men whose bullet-riddled bodies were found at two locations in Trelawny and St Ann last week.

The three have been identified as 30-year-old mason Devon Cunningham, also called Pronto; and 39-year-old Andrew Beckford -— both of Crawford — and Hopeton Wyne, 35, of Lacovia in St Elizabeth.

According to a highly placed police source, last Tuesday morning Beckford left Crawford in his Honda Accord motor car with Wyne and Cunningham as passengers.

The motor vehicle is now missing.

The police reported that about 6:30 last Thursday morning the bullet-riddled bodies of Wyne and Cunningham were stumbled upon by sugar estate workers in a cane field near Clark's Town in Trelawny.

Residents claim that about 8:00 Wednesday night they heard explosions, believed to be gunshots, coming from the vicinity of where the bodies of the two men were discovered.

The police suspect that the two men, whose hands and feet were bound, were taken to the location where they were shot execution style.

Meanwhile, Beckford's corpse was discovered with what appeared to be multiple gunshot wounds in an open lot in Hamstead, Runaway Bay, St Ann, about 6:00 am on Tuesday. His hands and feet were also bound.



Do you think an increase in JUTC bus fares is justified at this time?
