Makeup artist charged with murder of Dexter Pottinger

The police have charged a makeup artist for the murder of fashion designer, Dexter ‘3D’ Pottinger, whose body was found decomposed in his St Andrew home last week. 

The murder accused is 21-year-old Romario Brown, a tattoo and makeup artist of Rocky Valley, Stony Hill in St. Andrew.

Brown was charged on Tuesday evening. A court date is to be announced soon.

He was apprehended in St Ann last Friday. 

Pottinger's body was found on Thursday evening, when a concerned relative accompanied by a friend, went to visit him after being unable to make contact with him. 

 They later found Pottinger in a state of decomposition. 

The police were contacted and initial investigations showed that Pottinger received several stab wounds over his body. 

 It was reported that neighbours heard Pottinger calling out for assistance a day before the discovery of his body, but no one contacted the police. 

His vehicle — a 2017 Honda CR-V — and a television were missing from the house. 

The police found the car abandoned in the Stony Hill area late Thursday evening, while the television set and the murder weapon was allegedly found at the house of the accused man. 

Pottinger was discovered by Saint International and ventured into modelling. He then switched to fashion designing, where designed for several dancehall and corporate personalities.
