Recently we brought a story about Vybz Kartel former road Manager Patrick “Roach” Samuels being brutally murdered at a gas station in Kingston. Local Newspapers are now reporting that investigations into this murder led the police to the cell of jailed dancehall entertainer Adidja “Vybz Kartel” Palmer.
It is reported that “two cellular phones and three thumb drives” were taken from the cell occupied by Palmer. Additionally, the Jamaica Gleaner reports that “the cell occupied by another dancehall entertainer “Zebra” was searched and officers “seized a sim card, as well as a piece of paper containing instructions purportedly written by a popular entertainer.”
If that was not shocking enough, Vybz Kartel co-accused and member of his Gaza camp Shaun Campbell popularly known as Shaun Storm also had his cell searched and “one DVD player and an apple iPod were taken from the cell.” The police are now examining the evidence found as they seek to find the perpetrators of Patrick “Roach” Samuels murder.
Vybz kartel was charged for two murders in 2011 and had one charge dropped this year. He is expected to go back to trial in December in relation to the second murder charge. We will continue to track the development in this new Murder investigation. Please see story about Patrick Samuel’s Murder below.
