THIRTY-EIGHT-year-old Sean Anthony McFarlane, a former orderly and records clerk in the Houses of Parliament, was brutally slain recently.

McFarlane, who spent some 13 years working in the legislature, was severely chopped all over his body at his home in Greater Portmore.

The Gleaner has learnt that the former parliamentary records clerk was apparently killed by persons known to him. However, the Constabulary Communication Network (CCN) was unable to confirm this.

Reports from the CCN are that residents in the community heard loud noises coming from McFarlane's home on October 3 last month.

According to the CCN, two men were reportedly seen running towards a white Honda Civic motor car and sped off.

McFarlane's body was found in his house with multiple chop wounds.

The Gleaner has been informed that at least three teenagers have been held in connection with McFarlane's killing, but the police could not confirm this yesterday.

A senior parliamentarian told The Gleaner yesterday that he was aware of the killing of the former parliamentary worker.

He, however, pointed out that the House did not acknowledge his untimely passing during its sitting because the tradition was for tributes to be paid only to former parliamentarians.

The legislator indicated that condolences had been made by the staff of Parliament to McFarlane's family.
