A high level investigative probe is now underway in an attempt to solve last week's quadruple murder in Hayes, Clarendon which left three boys and a 35-year-old accounting clerk dead.

In an update from the Clarendon police, a high ranking police officer informed The Gleaner Power 106 News Centre that, despite bringing two persons in for questioning last week, no one has been formally charged in relation to the murders.

However, it is understood that senior investigators from the Clarendon police division are working with counterparts at the Commissioner's Office in St Andrew  to review the evidence.

According to the senior officer, the investigation is going apace, and the police are confident of making an early break-through into what he described as a “most heinous act".

It is understood that 14-year-old Raymond Givans, 14-year-old Ricardo Briscoe and 16-year-old Alex Turner were on their way home from the gym last Wednesday night when they stopped outside the home of 35-year-old accounting clerk Marquis Hamilton.

It was there that the four were shot and killed execution style.
