The Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF) said its officers have arrested and charged a man following a year-long investigation into the 2019 murder of British national 17-year-old Sherika Smith, who resided at Four Paths in the parish.

The accused is 23-year-old Tyrone Williams, otherwise called ‘Junior’, from Sunset Crescent in Clarendon.

The JCF said: “Reports are that on May 11, 2019, Smith allegedly went to meet with the accused and two days later her body was found at the entrance of a cane-field in Georges Pen, Clarendon.

“Investigations carried out by members assigned to the JCF’s Cybercrime Unit, as well as forensic evidence, linked Williams to the crime,” the JCF added.
