Aniesha Rose

ST ANN, Jamaica – The police are reportedly close to making a breakthrough into the killing of a Rubis gas station cashier who was found at her home at Free Hill in Bamboo, St Ann, on Monday morning.

Aniesha Rose, 24, was believed to have been murdered between 4:00 pm on Sunday and 1:30 pm Monday when her body was found.

Superintendent David White, the acting head of the St Ann division, told OBSERVER ONLINE that the police are making progress with their probe.

“The investigations are still continuing, but we are very close to making a breakthrough,” Superintendent White said.

He added that he, however, cannot divulge much because of the sensitive stage where the probe is at.

It was reported that about 4:00 pm on Sunday, residents reportedly heard the now deceased and someone quarrelling inside her home. However, checks were not made until about 1:30 pm on Monday, when residents found her body.

Police said when they arrived at Rose’s residence, her lifeless body was found clad in a yellow blouse and blue shorts and was barefooted, with her hands bound and her throat slashed.

The body was seen on its right side in bushes in her yard, the police said.
