St. Vincent: Cops Step Up Search For Press Secretary’s Killer

KINGSTOWN, St. Vincent, Apr. 28, 2006 – Police in St. Vincent and the Grenadines yesterday revealed they are questioning an unidentified man in the murder of Glen Jackson, the press secretary to Prime Minister Dr Ralph Gonsalves, who was discovered dead on Mar. 6, 2006.

But they would only say the young man was assisting in the investigation. This follows a three-and-a-half-hour search of two homes in Sion Hill yesterday as the cops stepped up their search for the killer (s) of the 45-year-old former journalist. The search comes about two days after PM, Ralph Gonsalves, appealed for information on the killing.

Jackson’s nude body was found in his car about 800 yards from his home in Cane Garden on March 6. An autopsy performed on March 7 confirmed that Jackson died from a single gunshot wound, which penetrated his sternum area and exited at the posterior or back area.

A reward of EC$50,000 is being offered to anyone who can provide information leading to the capture and conviction of the killer(s).

Jackson, a former teacher, journalist and talkshow host at WE-FM, is survived by his wife Susan and two sons, Glendon and Ian. (Hardbeatnews.com)
