Youth killed in cart road on the way to work
The body of 25-year-old Kevin Atherley of Padmore Village, St Philip, was discovered in a cart road not far from his home earlier today.
His mother Andrea Maynard told Nation News he left home at 6 a.m. as usual on his bicycle to go to work. It is about ten minutes from where Atherley lives and the family said it was the road he usually took.
Members of the family converged at the scene after hearing the news. They were very emotional and said Atherley was a quiet person who only worked, slept and worked.
The body was identified by one of his brothers and Nation News understands it had several chop wounds to the head.
Police public relations spokesman, acting inspector Rodney Inniss, said officers at District C Police station received an anonymous phone call around around 11:10 a.m. indicating that a body was in a cart road at Harrow.
Anyone with information which can assist the investigation is advised to call District C at 4168201, police emergency 211 or any police station. (MB)
