Brooks is currently in police custody after he was detained last week with three other relatives including, recording artiste Chase Cross.

According to reports, the teenager was questioned about the recent murder of a 23-year-old man in Cassava Piece, St Andrew. The deceased, Lorenza Thomas, otherwise called 'Israel' or 'Trulups' was reportedly at home when armed men kicked in the door to the house that he occupied and shot and then chopped him to death. His body was then set ablaze by his attackers.

Cassava Piece has been ablaze with violent crimes in the last two weeks ago after Mavado was shot at following a dispute. Mavado who is wanted for questioning in relation to the flare-up in violence is still in the United States.

Earlier this week law enforcement officers have issued a final warning for him to turn himself in.

According to investigators, they were informed by Mavado's attorney, Tamika Harris, that he is overseas fulfilling a contractual obligation however they were not given a specific time he would return to Jamaica.
