Love triangle cited as possible cause of woman, babies' murder

The police say they have stepped up their probe into the triple murder of a mother and her babies in Tower Hill, East Rural St Andrew on Wednesday, July 18, and are at looking at a number of leads into the macabre killings that have rocked the country.

“Police are following a number of leads. One of them suggests that the woman was in a love triangle turned sour,” said a policeman who is closely monitoring the case.

The lawman made the claim, but declined to go into details.

He would only say that with speculations and claims being made in a number of directions, investigators have intensified their probe to get a better idea of what was the best angle from which to solve the crime.

“We are hearing a number of things in the case, but at this time we cannot make a determination what is true, but we will not be ignoring any information,” said the officer from the St Andrew North Police Division.

But information sourced otherwise, pointed to the deceased woman as having been entangled in a highly emotional dispute with another woman that her intimate partner and the father of her children was reportedly still sexually involved with. That woman reportedly also has children for the now deceased woman’s partner.

Reports from the Mavis Bank police are that a relative stumbled upon the bodies of 29-year-old Kashief Jackson and her two children, one-year-old Aviere Williams and seven-day-old Aranza Williams, at their home in Tower Hill, St Andrew.

On their arrival, Jackson was seen inside the house, while Aviere and Aranza were seen outside on the verandah of the same dwelling.

Jackson had multiple stab wounds to her body, and there were signs that efforts were made to set fire to the dwelling.

The victims were taken to the hospital, where their deaths were confirmed.
