A woman who was seven months pregnant was killed and her body dumped in a water tank in Clarendon yesterday.
She has been identified by relatives as 27-year-old Tenisha Hamilton from Blackwood in Clarendon.
According to relatives, Hamilton's body was found in a water tank near the Thompson Town Primary School, but it was unclear how she died.
Assistant Commissioner Derrick Cochrane, who heads the Area Three Police, confirmed the incident but said up to late yesterday, detectives and firefighters were still on the scene.
Hamilton's death brings to five the number of pregnant women who have been reported killed over the last two months.
On September 1, St Thomas police Corporal Dwayne Smart allegedly shot and killed a pregnant Kay-Ann Lamont in Yallahs Square.
Also in September, two pregnant women were among four persons killed by gunmen in separate incidents in St James.
On Tuesday, police confirmed a burnt body found along the Port Royal main road earlier last month was that of Post and Telecommunications Department employee Tandy Lewis, who was also pregnant when she was killed.
