MANCHESTER, Jamaica — The autopsy on the body of 62-year-old Chieftin Campbell, who died after being mobbed in Mandeville on May 6, has been postponed.
Attorney Oswest Senior Smith, who has been retained by Campbell’s family to monitor the probe by the police and represent the family’s interest, told OBSERVER ONLINE that the autopsy is being considered for Saturday.
Smith said he was unaware of the reason for the postponement of the autopsy.
Campbell, who was described as a well-respected citizen and dedicated community member of Victoria Town in southern Manchester died after a crowd of people beat him on lower Manchester Road in what police theorise was a case of mistaken identity.
Earlier this month head of the Manchester police Superintendent Lloyd Darby had said two people were identified on the national closed-circuit television (CCTV) surveillance system, JamaicaEye, as being involved in the mob killing.
Campbell died days before his wedding.
