A top level probe has been launched into the killing of the Jamaica Labour Party Councillor/Caretaker for the Claremont Division in St. Ann, Ryan Beatle. Mr. Beatle was stabbed to death on Wednesday night in the community of Crescent Park in Golden Grove, Claremont. About 11 o'clock the Councillor/Caretaker's body was found lying face down outside his Toyota Corolla motorcar which had the engine running. The body had several stab wounds and the throat was slashed. Details were not available as up to early Thursday morning detectives were still processing the scene. It could not be ascertained whether a motive has been established for the killing of the JLP representative. And JLP candidate for South East St. Ann, Oneil Esteen, has condemned the deadly attack on the Councillor/Caretaker. He called for Mr. Beatle's killer to be brought to justice. "I really regret this cruel act and I condemn this act and I pray that the Lord will find the culprit and bring the person to justice. We need to promote peace and love at this time. I am against what took place tonight. He was a strong, vibrant, industrious man, decent, honest, not a man with any criminal background," Mr. Esteen said.
