Police investigators have revealed that an autopsy will be conducted on the body of the 12-year-old girl whose partially decomposed body was discovered in bushes near her home in Riversdale, St Catherine yesterday.

However, one investigator told The Gleaner/Power106 News Centre that no date has been set for the autopsy.

The body of 12-year-old Jamelia Johnson was found with multiple stab wounds three days after she was reported missing from her grandmother’s home.

It is also reported that the house belonging to her mother was set on fire after the child’s body was discovered.
