UPDATE: Carter found dead

Social Share

THE SUSPECTED murder victim whose body was found this morning is Selwyn ‘Gubbs’ Carter.
The 50-year-old Carter lived at Balls Land, a couple yards away from where his body was found. He had no children.
Sister Caroletta Carter, who lived next door to him, said she saw him last night at around 8. 
Caroletta recalled that during the night she heard his gate slamming, and thought when she saw him in the morning, she would ask why he wouldn’t learn to shut the gate when he came in at night.
The sister said that as family they had their differences, but the two of them developed a close relationship since he came home from prison a little under a year ago.
Police public relations officer Inspector David Welch said Carter’s body was discovered about 7 a.m. lying on the floor of a shed located at the rear of a house at Parish Land. The body bore several injuries. (SP)
