It was a grisly Emancipation Day in St. James as residents woke to find a father and a son dead on August 1.
The police are theorising that the son murdered the father and buried his body in a shallow grave three weeks ago. According to reports, the Freeport police were summoned to a location in Williamsfield at 12:30 pm when the body of 19-year-old Duvane James, otherwise known as ‘Christopher King’, was found with multiple chop wounds.
While at the crime scene police were alerted to a shallow grave at the back of Duvane’s home, a residence he shared with his father.
After the grave was excavated the body of Duvane’s father, Owen James, was discovered.
It is believed that Duvane was murdered after he had killed his father and buried him at the back of their home.
Owen James was last seen on July 9, 2016.
The police are still investigating.
