The police have released the man they had linked to last month's fatal shooting of five persons on Milton Close in Portsmouth, St. Catherine.
The suspect, Donovan Topping, was freed Tuesday evening after two failed identification parades.
It is reported that during the first line-up Mr. Topping was not pointed out.
During the second ID parade the witness failed to show up. Topping's attorney, Christopher Townsend, told RJR News his client was released several hours after the expiration of a court order.
“Topping was released late yesterday evening, despite the judge’s order that he be released by 10 o’clock. We are really treading on dangerous grounds when a judge’s order can be flouted just like that,” Townsend said.
And the police Tuesday also released the nephew of former Tivoli Garden’s strongman, Christopher "Dudus" Coke.
Lavaugh Campbell, 20, had been held for one week without being charged.
He had surrendered to the Denham Town Police, in the company of his attorney, after being named as a person of interest
A senior investigator told RJR News Mr. Campbell was a member of a gang known as "Young Generation," which has reportedly been flexing its muscles in the police division, since Mr. Coke's extradition.
