Police in Jamaica probe slaying of New York teenDecember 28, 2013 @ 11:40 am
KINGSTON, Jamaica (AP) - Police in Jamaica are investigating the slaying of a New York teenager who vanished along with her cousin.
Assistant commissioner Derrick Knight said Saturday that detectives have seized two vehicles in connection with the double homicides. They have also identified someone whom they believe knows something about the crimes and have urged him to turn himself in.
Police say 19-year-old Franciena Johnson of Brooklyn, New York, and her 18-year-old cousin Nadia Fearon vanished last week. Police later found their bodies floating in a salt marsh along the southern coast. Johnson's body had gunshot wounds.
Johnson was born in Jamaica but moved to the United States as a child. She was in Jamaica to visit her grandmother.
