Police did not reveal the man’s identity to reporters, but sources identified the victim as Daxon, who is also a preacher.

Police Spokesperson Audley Peters said, “Police responded and on their arrival, they discovered in a gray vehicle, a male’s body crouched under the passenger seat. An examination of this body was conducted. There were no injuries found to the body and that’s all the information that we have.”

Prison Commissioner Charles Murphy also visited the scene.

Peters said, “There’s information within the vehicle that there’s a possibility that this individual might be a prison officer and so that’s why his presence (Murphy) was here this morning to confirm. But at this moment, we’re not confirming or denying whether that individual (was a prisoner officer).”
