British Jamaican man killed on his way from airport

Keith Murray killed in Jamaica British man airport Portmore Norman ManleyIt is saddening and unfortunate that persons and in particular returning residents now need to exercise extreme caution when leaving an airport in Jamaica. 

For years persons arriving on the island via airports have been the targets of gunmen.

The latest incident involving someone being targeted shortly after arriving on the island will surely serve to reinforce the need to be vigilant when departing an airport.

According to a report by Irie FM, the body of a British-Jamaican, was found near Spanish Town St. Catherine yesterday afternoon (June 28).

  

He has been identified as 54-year-old businessman Keith Murrain.

He is of a Caribbean Estates address in St. Catherine and also resided in Birmingham, England.  He had just returned  to the island from a visit to the United Kingdom.

He was kidnapped somewhere along the For Augusta Road in Portmore during a stop to relieve himself.

Reports are that Murrain arrived in the island on Friday night, and was travelling through Portmore, when he was allegedly abducted by armed men.

1. His name is Keith Murrain
2. He lives in England and was visiting JA
3. The driver went to police and said they took Keith but just beat the driver only
4. This is a set up by these lowlifes in JA who don’t /can’t do anything worthwhile with their life.
5.I know this because he’s my family
6. Senseless killing of a visitor. JA will never see me again. And I will make sure that they know he’s NOT a citizen of JA

The authorities must find a way to intercept these ‘airport stalkers’, to catch them in the act or nip them in the bud. Who knows, perhaps we can help from the US, UK, or Canada?
