Tuesday, 13th February, 2018 – More than 24 hours after he escaped custody, police are no closer to apprehending murder accused Delano Forbes.
Forbes escaped around 3 p.m on Monday and has not been seen since. At the time he dashed to freedom, he was being escorted by detectives to the village of Sweetes, as the police continue to investigate the 23 year-old for multiple murders.
When contacted, Commissioner of Police Wendell Robinson would only say the search continues for Forbes, who is dubbed the “Vampire Killer”. At the time of his escape, Forbes was handcuffed.
A police source has confirmed to POINTE FM’s Nightly News that a photo making the rounds on social media is that of Delano Forbes. However, it was not taken after the murder accused escaped.
The source revealed that the photo of Forbes wearing a floral three quarter pants was taken while he was in police custody and may have been leaked by someone within the police force.
23 year-old Forbes is facing charges of murdering Wilfred ‘Bongo’ Williams, Shawn Henry in point and Lisue Williams on All Saints Road, and may also be responsible for several murders in the U.S Virgin Islands.
He is believed to have slit the throats of his victims and may have kept their blood in jars. There are also reports that he may have drank the blood of his victims.
