It has been confirmed that former Trade advisor to the government, Ambassador Peter King, died from wounds inflicted by a sharp object which was used to stab him several times in his upper body.

An on the spot autopsy at Ambassador King’s Waterloo Road apartment in St Andrew this morning also revealed that his throat was slashed.

Senior Superintendent George Quallo (QUAYLO) told the Gleaner Power 106 News a short while ago that senior detectives continue to question two persons following the death of Ambassador King.

He’s urging member of the public who can assist in the investigation to come forward.

The police believe the two persons being questioned were among a group of persons at Ambassador King’s apartment last night.

Ambassador King’s body was reportedly found nude in his bedroom and SSP Quallo said there was no forced sign of entry.

Bloodstains were reportedly found on an adjoining patio where the police believe the killer or killers might have washed off blood before leaving.
