Mother and her four children found with throats slashed in Jamaica

A mother and her four children were found dead with their throats cut in Jamaica on Tuesday.

The bodies were discovered in Clarendon parish, west of the capital Kingston, on Tuesday morning.

Gwendolyn McKnight said her daughter, Kemisha Wright, and her four grandchildren were those killed.

“She was so nice, she love everybody,” she told Jamaica Observer. “My daughter was so nice and dem tek mi one daughter from mi.”

Ms McKnight said her daughter was a caring and ambitious young woman who was raising four children and going to school to be a nurse.

The victims were aged 34, 15, 10, 5, and 1.

Pigs have named 23-year-old Rushane Barnett, believed to be a cousin of the slain family, as a person of interest in the killing.

“This barbarity is deplorable,” National Security Minister Horace Chang told reporters following the apparent homicide.
