Special team investigating Hanover quadruple murder
National Security Minister Robert Montague says a special team has been dispatched to Hanover to investigate the quadruple murder in Mount Carmel.
Montague says a massive manhunt is now underway and the police are following strong leads.
He notes that a nephew of one of the deceased is a person of interest in multiple murders.
Montague made the disclosure while delivering a statement in Parliament this afternoon updating the country on the national security ministry’s response to the ongoing murder wave gripping the island.
Gunmen last night shot and killed 60-year old Curtis Walters, his common law wife, 34- year-old Erica Leslie, his 17-year-old son, Iana, and his 14-year-old daughter Curtina.
It’s reported that the family was asleep about 11 o’clock when men armed with high-powered weapons kicked in the door of their house and opened fire.
All four were shot multiple times.
The killing of the family has pushed up the murder tally in Hanover to 37.
