Man facing three murder charges

Police have held a St George man for the murder of three men.

Michael Kenan Blackette, 21, of Block 2, Flat Rock, St. George, is expected to appear at the District ‘A’ Magistrates Court today charged with the May 5 murder of Charles Ellis who was shot in Nelson Street, the City; the murder of Kemal Leacock, who was shot on August 14 at Bottom Close, Wildey, St Michael and the shooting death of Ashem Telemaque, who died after being shot on August 4 while at a bar in Forde’s Road, St Michael.

He will also answer two other charges of shooting and wounding a man at Parkinson Field, Pinelands, St. Michael, on January 22 and the shooting and wounding of a man at Fordes Road, St. Michael, on August 4 (same incident where Telemaque was shot).

    Walter Prescod’s well done BPF would seem to be way off.
    When the accused have thought to have committed three murders, and in addition shot and injured others I would be indeed hesitant to offer a “well done ” to the BPF when in essence it has taken this long to arrest someone who is suspected of committing a slew of gun related crimes, and, not at one sight,but at various places throughout the Island .
    I for one would not believe that there were not witnesses to some of these events. It does seem that the BPF was either asleep or lacked the ability to properly investigate incidence of this magnitude. How could it be possible for a lone wolf to have committed these type of crimes in a place as small as Barbados ,and evade being apprehended for so long? Some thing is wrong with that picture for sure.
    Some serious work needs to be done to improve Police work in Barbados. Someone or some people should have to answer as to why a crime of this magnitude took authorities so long to be solved.
