Jealousy is being blamed for the murder of four year-old Natasha Brown of Duanvale, Trewlany in Jamaica on Tuesday May 28. Her decapitated body was retrieved from a 10-ft deep sink hole in the community on Wednesday. A woman who is said to be the ex-lover of the dead child’s father was taken into custody after she reportedly confessed to the killing and later led investigators to the sink hole late Tuesday evening.
The child’s father Baldwin Brown admitted ending a relationship with the accused woman five months ago. “I simply can’t believe it,” he said. “How can someone do this to a child?”
Four year-old Natasha never showed up for school Tuesday morning and she was reportedly seen in the company of the woman. Later that morning the accused killer was reportedly seen carrying a crocus bag towards the sink hole. She reportedly told someone she was going to dump the remains of a dead animal. When news circulated that Natasha was missing the police were informed of the woman’s activities. When the accused woman who was reportedly angry with the child’s father for ending the relationship, was located she reportedly confessed to killing the child and led police to the sink hole.
With fire fighters and the police having difficulty accessing the sinkhole as night approached on Tuesday the search was called off until Wednesday morning. Shortly after 10 a. m. a resident was lowered into the sinkhole and he retrieved the body and the head which was severed.
The accused woman is said to have four children of her own. Meanwhile the child’s mother was reported to be in a state of shock.
