2 Women & 1 Man Head Chop Off, Violence Tun Up Ina Jamaica!!! Ex Clans Man Member, Gang Related Murders. Wicked & Brutal
UPDATED: Daughter’s head found in Rio Cobre
Lauriston woman and daughter murdered, decapitated yesterday
A head believed to be that of Joyette Lynch — who together with her church minister mother Charmaine Rattray were shot and decapitated yesterday — was found this afternoon under the Rio Cobre Railway Bridge in Spanish Town, St Catherine.
Some men were fishing in the Rio Cobre Railway Bridge when they saw the head of the 19-year-old floating down the river. They subsequently alerted the police.
Police had initially believed that the head was that of Rattray.
The family were attacked by gunmen who invaded their Lauriston home on the outskirts of Spanish Town.
The macabre murders, apparently meant to send a chilling message, came days after a neighbour, 18-year-old Scott Thomas was similarly decapitated by men believed to be his cronies from the feared Klansman gang.
Thomas’ death was a result of gang infighting, the police have said, but detectives were up to last night looking into several motives that could have led to the murders of Rattray and her daughter.
“We believe the case is linked to Monday’s murder of Thomas,” ventured one detective who spoke on condition of anonymity.
Both women were said to be devout Christians and members of the New Life Church of God. Lynch, a former student of The Queen’s School in At Andrew, was scheduled to start her law degree at the University of the West Indies in September.
The two were attacked just after dawn by the men armed with guns and machetes, who kicked open the door to their home as they slept. The women’s heads were taken from the scene by the culprits who had inflicted numerous chop wounds to the victims’ bodies.
Residents listened and cowered helplessly as the women’s horrified screams pierced the morning’s silence.
