The Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF) is continuing its probe into the murder of a vendor from Linstead, St. Catherine.
He has been identified so far only by his alias, ‘Tippy Dread’.
He walked with a limp.
He, for many years, also sold mangoes and ackee on a handcart mainly on Market Street in Linstead.
The body, which has chop wounds, was found April 23 on a handcart inside Oxford Market at Pechon Street in Downtown Kingston.
The JCF told The Beacon: “Reports from the Denham Town Police are that, about 5:40AM, vendors stumbled upon the body and summoned them. On their arrival, Tippy Dread was seen lying face-down in a pool of blood. The scene was processed and the body was removed to the morgue, pending a post mortem. Investigations continue.”
