Police have revealed that the 35-year-old woman who was found dead at her home in Higgin Town, St Ann earlier this week was also raped.

Area Two police, Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) Fitz Bailey, has also confirmed that a suspect has been taken into custody in relation to the gruesome killing.

The victim, identified as Terry Bowen of Higgin Town, suffered from Down syndrome.

Down syndrome (DS), also called Trisomy 21, is a condition in which a person is born with an extra chromosome. … With Down syndrome, the extra chromosome causes delays in the way a person develops, mentally and physically.

According to ACP Bailey, at approximately 10:30 am, Bowen’s body was discovered in a one room dwelling that was under construction. Her body had numerous stab wounds.

Several persons have been utilising social media to express disbelief and outrage at the horrific killing.

On Wednesday, Member of Parliament for South East St Ann, Lisa Hanna made the following post via Facebook:

Shockingly, less than 24 hours prior to Bowen’s tragic demise, her cousin Orlando Lewis was reportedly shot dead by unknown assailants.

However, police do not believe the two incidents are related.
