The Police High Command has refuted reports that three suspects were held in connection with the gruesome murders of two American missionaries in St Mary.

According to the Gleaner, Assistant Commissioner of Police in charge of the crime portfolio, Ealan Powell said  the reports are untrue and further stated the police were yet to identify any suspects or the motive for the killings of Randy Hentzel and Harold Nichols.

The body of United States missionary Randy Hentzel was found over the weekend on a dirt track in Albion Mountain, in the parish.

The 58-year old was reportedly found lying face-down with his hands bound behind him near a motorcycle that is suspected to have belonged to him.

The body of 53-year-old Harold Nichols was later found lying in a pool of water behind bushes, wrapped in barbed wire, with his head bashed in.

Autopsies have revealed that both men were shot.
