The funeral service for Voicemail member Oneil Edwards will be held on Saturday, June 6th at the Church on the Rock, Clifton Avenue, Kingston beginning at 10 a.m.


Oneil's body will be interred at Meadowrest. The Voicemail group is known for hits such as Let's Dance, Wacky Dip, Weddy Time and Bring You Body Come.

He was shot five times, once in the head, during an attack as he attempted to enter his home at Belloc Avenue in the middle class community of Duhaney Park on May 10th.
He had been listed as critical even though he was said to be breathing on his own, but eventually succumbed to his injuries.

The main suspect in the shooting was found dead in the Chancery Hall community on Tuesday, May 11. Police said the unidentified man managed to escape a dragnet set up to nab him the previous day.

Edwards' cellular phone was found in the dead man's possession. The body was clad in green short pants, white T-shirt and blue slippers and was found on Lady Hamilton Close with several gunshot wounds.

A second suspect was picked up by the Manchester Police in that parish on the following night and is being transported to Kingston where he will be questioned by senior homicide investigators.
