THERE are still no new developments in the investigations into the September 10 discovery of the body of Thadious “Mr Teddy” Jamieson, the father of reggae singer Thriller U.

Speaking to the Jamaica Observer yesterday, Thriller U noted the family, including his mother, were doing their best in light of the situation.

Jamieson's body was found in a shallow grave along the Simon Main Road in Tredegar Park, near Spanish Town in St Catherine, one week after he was reported missing by family members.

The 73-year-oldwas last seen alive on the afternoon of Saturday, September 2 leaving a hardware store in the Greendale area of Spanish Town. When he did not return home, the artiste and family made an alarm. The family announced they were offering a reward of $500,000 for anyone who could offer information that would lead to Jamieson's safe return.

However, their worst fears were realised on September 10, after an anonymous call to the Spanish Town Police reported a foul odour coming from bushes along the Simon Main Road. A search of the area revealed the decomposing body of Jamieson who was identified by the family based on the clothing and shoes he was wearing.

Jamieson's white Toyota Corolla motorcar with licence plate number 1287 GV is still missing.The Spanish Town Police are investigating.

This is the second major tragedy in the life of the singer as eight years ago his 16-year-old daughter was gunned down while on holiday with her mother in Florida.
