Love, struggling relationships and cops are a deadly Molotov cocktail that has led to several murder suicides in the past decade. The latest incident involved a couple in Short Hill in St Elizabeth, where a female resident and her lover, an ex-policeman, are now dead after an apparent murder-suicide.


The deceased persons have been identified as, 41-year-old nail technician Tamara McIntosh, a resident of Short Hill; and 59-year-old Easton Douglas of a Passage Fort address in St Catherine,


The Corporate Communication Unit, which has confirmed the incident, told The Gleaner that Douglas is a retired police inspector.


According to reports from residents of the community, shortly after 6:00 p.m, gunshots were heard coming from a location, where Douglas was visiting McIntosh.


Upon investigation, the bodies of the two were seen with what appeared to be gunshot wounds.


A glock pistol was seen on the ground beside Douglas’ body.


Residents say the couple was involved in an ‘on again, off again’  relationship, which was apparently a source of much tension between the two.
