Cell site analysis supports prosecution's case in Boulevard trial
Barbara Gayle, Justice Coordinator
An expert witness today testified at the Boulevard murder trial that he conducted data analysis on the cellphone of the prosecution’s main witness.
Andrew Johnson, who is attached to the Telecommunication Unit at Scotland Yard, told the court that on the afternoon December 23, 2004 the former policeman made several calls.
He said the movement showed that between 3:45 pm and 8:24 pm the cop made calls from cell towers along Washington Boulevard, Marcus Garvey Drive, downtown Kingston, Harbor View, the Palisadoes main road and the Port Royal main road.
Constables Louie Lynch, Paul Edwards and Assistant Superintendent of Police Victor Barrett are on trial for the murders of Kemar Walters and Oliver Duncan who were taken from a plaza along Washington Boulevard, St Andrew in 2004.
The prosecution's main witness has testified that the men were taken from the plaza by policemen.
Edwards and Lynch are said to have committed the murder while the assistant superintendent is accused of trying to cover up the case.
