Desiree Gibbon via GoFundMe

The body of a New York model was reportedly found with her throat slashed along Long Hill, St James on Sunday morning.

She has been identified as 26-year-old Desiree Gibbon of Queens, New York.

A report by the New York Daily News says Gibbon’s ambition took her to Jamaica in search of work to save money for film school.

Police say Gibbon came to Jamaica in October and was given a three month visa.

According to Loop Jamaica, Gibbon obtained a Tax Registration Number (TRN) and was actively seeking employment after arriving in Jamaica.

Her body was reportedly caked with blood when it was discovered by residents in bushes.

A GoFundMe page has been set up to help cover the transportation of her body back to the United States as well as funeral costs.

A possible motive has not yet been ascertained for the killing.
