The relatives of slain postal worker Tandy Lewis have denied two aspects of the Jamaica Observer's report of her murder published on Wednesday.
According to Lewis' sister, Nadia Lewis-Gorton, her mother did not collapse on hearing the news that DNA tests confirmed that the partially burnt body of a pregnant woman found in bushes on the Port Royal road was that of her daughter.
Lewis-Gorton also denied that a relative could have told the Observer that the family were upset that they had to hear the news over the media before they were contacted.
She said that the police did inform her about the DNA results before the information was broadcast. However, the story was aired while she was on her way from Kingston to inform her mother, who lives in St Catherine.
