Police investigating the brutal murder of university lecturer and attorney-at-law Clover Graham were yesterday questioning a deportee as they continue to probe the killing which stunned the legal fraternity three weeks ago.
"Yes, somebody was taken into custody. But we are looking at other persons, as the investigation continues," operations officer for the St Catherine South Police Division, Deputy Superintendent Clive Blair, told The Gleaner yesterday.
According to the police, the man who was deported from the United Kingdom sometime ago was picked up at a house in the vicinity of Chisholm Avenue, Kingston 13. The house is located less than a mile from where the attorney's car was found.
The Gleaner understands that the deportee was known to the deceased. The lawmen are reportedly now probing the circumstances under which several letters were written to the deportee, by another attorney, in relation to a property in the Kingston 13 area that is linked to the deceased.
Evidence found at suspect's home
Also, forensic experts are processing vital evidence that was found at the deportee's home. This could confirm if he was involved in the murder of the attorney.
Yesterday, family, relatives and friends said farewell to Graham during a thanksgiving service held at the University of the West Indies Chapel at the Mona campus in St Andrew.
Graham's body was discovered on August 18, in the vicinity of the Caymanas Golf Club, off Mandela Highway in St Catherine with the throat slashed. At the time of her death, the 56-year-old attorney was employed to the Legal Aid Clinic in Kingston and was a lecturer at both the University of Technology and the Norman Manley Law School at the UWI.
