Forensic material handed over in Vybz Kartel case today!

Investigators probing the murder-case against dancehall entertainer Vybz Kartel have now submitted the forensic material in the case.  The forensic reports were turned over to the Director of Public Prosecutions Monday.  A senior investigator told RJR News that they have now submitted the videotaped material; the telephone data, including text messages exchanged between the persons allegedly involved in the killing, and the forensic material.

RJR News understands that the forensic material revealed that bloodstains taken from the scene of the alleged killing, were that of human blood.  The reports also revealed that persons who carried out the crime, attempted to destroy the evidence by setting fire to the house in which 24 year old Clive Williams otherwise called Lizard, was killed.  However, the senior investigator told RJR News that they were able to retrieve bloodstain evidence at the crime scene. The telephone data or text messages reportedly give goring details as to how the body of the victim was disposed off.

Vybz Kartel, whose real name is Adidjah Palmer, is charged jointly with members of  his Gaza Empire for the murder of Mr Williams.  It's alleged that on August 16, last year, Mr. Williams was taken to a house in Havendale where he was beaten and stabbed to death.  The cops reported that they seized a cellular phone used to record the killing and that has helped them to show that Williams was killed although they didn't find his body.  The others accused of  the crime are deejay, Shawn Campbell, also known as "Shawn Storm"; fashion designer, Calvin Haye, also known as "Moonie"; Cayro Jones, Sean Williams, and Andre St John.  Justice Marjorie Cole Smith had given the police until Monday to submit the material following complaints from the attorneys for Vybz Kartel.  A bail hearing is tentatively set for Friday before the Home Circuit Court.
