 Prime Minister Andrew Holness has expressed outrage following the recent murder of a teenager in the Corporate Area.

In a statement on Sunday, Holness condemned the murder of Yetanya Francis,14, from the community of Arnett Gardens.

Her charred body was found in the community on Friday, after she was reported missing late Thursday. 

“The thugs who murdered 14-year-old Yetanya Francis have no place in the Jamaican society we are seeking to create,” said Holness who added said the police have assured him that no stone will be left unturned to find the heartless perpetrators.

“I have spoken to the Minister of National Security and the Commissioner of Police. They both emphasized their resolve to ensure that the perpetrator or perpetrators are brought to justice. No society can survive the constant killing of its children and we all must stand united against these criminals.”

The Prime Minister appealed to persons  with information on the killing to report it to the police or to call Crime Stop.

“Witnesses do not need to fear that their information will be exposed as we have Crime Stop – 311, and other ways to give information. I am asking members of the community of Arnett Gardens as well, if they know who the criminals are to turn them over to the police, as criminals who attack children don’t usually stop.”
