Four Jamaican survivors on ill-fated Miami boat were previously deported from US - Prosecutors
Prosecutors in Florida have revealed that four of the persons who survived the ordeal were Jamaicans with felony convictions who were deported from the US.
They are 30-year-old Matthew Williams, 40-year-old Everton Jones, also known as ‘Everton Bryce’, and 35-year-old Kenard Hagigal.
And prosecutors say another Jamaican on the ill-fated boat, Sean Gaynor, was also deported from the US.
US authorities say six survivors have been charged with attempted alien smuggling and illegal re-entry into the US, but did not indicate if the Jamaicans were among those facing criminal charges.
