The Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF) recently revealed that a man has been taken into custody in relation to the murders of an elderly Jamaican-Canadian couple.
The bodies of Melbourne Flake, 81, and Etta Flake, 70, were found in their home in St. Thomas last month.
Via a statment, the JCF said:
“One man has been taken into Police custody in relation to the murder of Melbourne and Etta Flake in Retreat, St.Thomas on Jan.9.
Following preliminary investigations, the suspect was held in Seaforth district, St. Thomas on Wednesday, February 7. He is to be questioned in the presence of his attorney, however, his identity is being withheld pending further investigations.”
Debbie Olfert, a daughter of the couple told CBC News that the Flakes immigrated to Canada 53 years ago from Jamaica in search of work.
Melbourne plied his trade as a carpenter and Etta worked as a nurse.
Olfert also reportedly stated that her parents enjoyed spending time in their homeland and had just begun to enjoy their new home in the winters.
