Following the murder of 21-year-old Jahkoby Smith, Opposition Leader Patricia Gordon-Pamplin extended her deepest condolences to his family and friends as they grapple with this tragedy.

Mr Smith was fatally stabbed on Saturday evening [July 29] at the West End Sailboat Club, which was hosting the wake following the funeral for the late Jachari Francis, who was murdered earlier this month.

Ms Gordon-Pamplin said, “It is with heavy hearts that we learn of the death of another young man to senseless violence.

“We offer our deepest condolences to his family and friends as they grapple with this painful tragedy.

“We encourage the community to embrace this family as they mourn the death of their beloved son, and pray that we can come together as a people in trying to arrest this devastating trend.”

The police previously said, “We continue to appeal for witnesses to this incident. We would like to speak to anyone who may have seen something or heard something, particularly, if you were at the West End Sailboat Club or in the general vicinity, around the time of the incident.

“Also, anyone knowing the movements of Jahkoby Smith prior to this incident, is urged to contact Acting Inspector Dean Martin of the Serious Crime Unit on 717-2074 / 247-1739 or the confidential Crime Stoppers Hotline on 800-8477.”
