The murder rate in Jamaica does not seem as if it intends to decline anytime soon.
According to reports from The Toronto Star:
Shirley Lewis-McFarlane, a 53-year-old Aurora, Ontario, mother of three had only recently moved to Jamaica before meeting her untimely and unfortunate fate.
She was murdered earlier this week at her rental home in Discovery Bay.
Jamaican Constabulary Force Supt. Yvonne Martin Daley confirmed that police were called to Lewis-McFarlane’s home around 4 p.m. on Monday and discovered the woman dead in her bed.
Despite some media reports of Lewis-McFarlane’s throat having been slashed, police have yet to confirm the cause of death.
“The information that I have is that she had bruises to her face so some blunt force was applied,” Martin Daley said.
The case is being given “priority attention,” and police have recruited additional help from detectives from Kingston, Jamaica.
Lewis-McFarlane married her second husband, Carl McFarlane, a Jamaican citizen, in 2001. Since then, she travelled back and forth between Canada and Jamaica. Her son Shawn Gavigan, 27, told the Toronto Star that she had finally moved to Jamaica permanently in November.
