The body of singer Thriller U's father was found in Tredegar Park yesterday

Up to a short while ago the police were still processing the scene where the body of Thadious 'Mr Teddy' Jamieson was found in a shallow grave on Simon Main Road , Tredegar Park, St Catherine.

A missing person report had been filed for Jamieson by his son - reggae singer Eustace 'Thriller U' Hamilton - with a reward of $500,000 offered for his safe return.

Up to September 6, Hamilton posted on his social media page that he still had no positive leads on his father's whereabouts.

At about 1 p..m. today Thriller U confirmed on social media that his father had been found, but not with the outcome he wanted.

"The good news is, we found daddy, however, it isn't the outcome we all have been anticipating. My dad is resting in the arms of sweet deliverance. May his memories be a light that shines within our darkest hour. I'm truly disturbed as a result of the way he was viciously and senselessly taken away from his family, especially, my mother, his wife."

"I'm letting the authorities do their job to investigate the MURDER of my father," he wrote.

Jamieson, 73 years old, was last seen in the Greendale area of Spanish Town.

Thriller U's popular songs include My God is Real. He is also a member of the quartet LUS, along with Lukie D, Singing Melody and Tony Curtis.
