Thursday 8th March, 2018 – The death of an elderly man last evening has left residents in Matthews Village on edge, with many wondering if murder accused Delano Forbes has struck again.
Police have confirmed that retired postal worker Morrison Thomas who goes by the alias Chung was killed by someone in his home.
According to reports, the victim said was found lying in a pool of blood in his home after calls to his phone went unanswered. His daughter reportedly made the gruesome discovery after visiting his home early Wednesday evening.
Unconfirmed reports are neighbours related hearing a cry for help and saw someone running away from Thomas’s home. However, this was not confirmed by police. A post mortem examination will be conducted on the body of the 62 year-old man to determine the exact cause of death.
