Jamaica: Policeman, wife dead in murder-suicide

April 13, 2014

KINGSTON, Jamaica (AP) — Investigators say a Jamaican police officer appears to have shot and killed his wife before turning the gun on himself.

The Jamaica Constabulary Force says the 31-year-old Spanish Town policeman apparently fatally shot Latoya Campbell-Thompson at their home late Saturday, a day before her 28th birthday.

Early Sunday, detectives found the corpse of Constable Davian Thompson in a nearby drainage gully with a gunshot wound to his head. He was clutching a revolver.

Thompson was on temporary suspension from the police force for his involvement in a shooting incident last year. Details of that shooting were not immediately available.
