The St Catherine Police have revealed that they are still interviewing several suspects in the death of a seven-year-old girl whose body was found in the Rio Cobre last week, days after she was reported missing.

Kadesha Cousins, a second-grade student at Waterford Primary School, was last seen alive last Wednesday morning when her grandmother left her at a bus stop in Central Village while on her way to school.

A missing person report was filed with the police when she did not return home from school and two days later, fishermen found her body in the Rio Cobre.

The police say Kadesha’s body was found laying face down and relatives revealed that they were informed that it had multiple stab wounds.

Family members also revealed that police investigators have informed them that a man who is well known to the seven-year-old had been taken into custody.

However, Senior Superintendent Noel Christie, who heads the St Catherine South Police Division, insists that detectives are still interviewing suspects.

Christie says a post-mortem is to be conducted next Tuesday to determine how Kadesha Cousins met her death.
