The Area Three Police say their probe into the slaying of a pregnant woman in Clarendon on Wednesday remains wide open.

This disclosure by head of the Area Three Police Assistant Commissioner Derrick Cochrane comes a day after a man was set upon and beaten by angry residents who accused him of the killing.

Twenty-seven-year-old Tenisha Hamilton, who was seven months pregnant, was killed and her body dumped in a water tank in Clarendon on Wednesday.

A day later, the man was attacked and beaten by residents.

He remains hospitalised, but Cochrane says his condition is not considered life-threatening.

He says investigators are still collecting statements and have not yet established a motive for Hamilton’s killing.
