The main suspect in the murder of a pregnant woman reportedly hanged himself Monday morning in the lock up of the Lionel Town police station in Clarendon.
The Jamaica Constabulary Force’s Corporate Communications Unit confirmed the incident.
“We can confirm that he hanged himself using a clothing he had on at the time of the arrest. We are still working on ascertaining the full details of the case,” a representative of the CCU told the Jamaica Observer.
The unidentified man was the main suspect in the murder of Tashieka McKay, who was believed to be about eight months pregnant, at the time. McKay’s four-year old daughter found her butchered at her home in Rhoden Hall, near Kellits, Clarendon.
