KINGSTON, Jamaica — Assistant Commissioner of Police Ealan Powell has denied that law enforcers have apprehended three of four suspects in the murders of two American missionaries.
A highly placed Government source had told the OBSERVER ONLINE that the suspects were taken into custody Tuesday evening. However, later, Powell said the report was “not true”. He added that the police do not yet have any names of any suspects. The missionaries — 48-year-old Randy Hentzel and 53-year-old Harold Nichols — were found dead in Boscobel, St Mary on the weekend. Police reported that both men had rented motorcycles in Ocho Rios, St Ann, and went on a trail on Saturday. Residents later stumbled upon Hentzel’s body after 12:00 pm, face down with the hands bound. Nichols’ body was found sometime after 2:00 pm on Sunday with his head bashed in. Autopsies later showed that Hentzel died of a gunshot wound while Nichols’ body had a gunshot and chop wounds.
