Victim: Keith Murrain is believed to have been killed within hours of arriving in Jamaica

The family of a British businessman killed in St. Catherine on the weekend, says arrangements are being made for relatives to come to Jamaica to follow up on the investigation into the murder.

54 year old Keith Murrain arrived in Jamaica last Friday June 27 and was abducted by armed men while travelling through Port more, St. Catherine.

His body was found in a shallow grave, in a cane field near Spanish Town the following day. His throat had been slashed.

Relatives of Mr. Murrain are asking why the businessman was killed and are calling for justice.

  

Police had initially identified the businessman as Keith Murray, saying he was a Jamaican who lived and worked in England.

However, reports in British online news identified the businessman as Keith Murrain, of Edgbaston, Birmingham in the UK.

Mr. Murrain’s family told the UK Daily Mail that Murrain was in the business of exporting engineering parts to Jamaica and Trinidad.

Relatives say he travelled frequently to Jamaica where he owned a home in the gated Caribbean Estates community.

The relatives state that they are shocked at the cruel manner in which Mr. Murrain was killed, and ask why his attackers couldn’t have robbed him and let him live.

They describe Mr. Murrain as a born and bred British businessman, who was loved by all who knew him.

Mr. Murrian’s mother says she is making arrangements to fly to Jamaica with her son’s former partner.

She says she has been in contact with the British High Commission in Kingston, which has promised her police protection while in the island.

The Jamaican police have appealed to persons to be cautious about who they inform of their return to the island, because such incidents are orchestrated by individuals who know the traveller’s schedule.

The relatives of Murrain say such incidents involving someone being targeted shortly after arrival, underlines the need for everyone to be vigilant when departing the airport.

The UK Daily mail says a foreign affairs officer confirmed awareness of the murder and said the office will provide consular assistance to the family.

The killers are people close to the family of the victim…Yet jealous of his achievement….I wonder why these idiots are so dumb…Only in Jamaica will you see people kill a rich man and not take nothing from him. Why not take money and let him live? Dumb ass idiots… I guess there are other crimes worse than homosexuality afterall.

These British people hear what they do to foreigners in Jamaica—how Jamaicans murdered the 8 yr old kid holidaying from South London, how Jamaicans rob returning residents and all the nasty things they do to people out of Britain. Yet they still continue to go to Jamaica. ARE THESE PEOPLE BRAIN DEAD??? WHAT MAKES THEM KEEP GOING SOMEWHERE THAT DEATH LURKS? WHERE FOREIGNERS ARE SITTING DUCKS? Tough luck.
