A publication by Jamaica Gleaner today, Wednesday, June 17 indicated that several Jamaican organizations in the diaspora in the United States of America have decided to launch a gofundme for the families of the two police officers shot to death in Horizon Park, Spanish Town is false.
My Jamaica Today can confirm that this is false and according to the family of one of the policemen killed, Constable Decardo Hylton, they have absolutely no knowledge of such nor have they received a call to indicate that was being considered.
It is their assumption that this could be another classed act of “scamming” and using people’s emotional intelligence to give in and donate.
Understanding this, the family of Hylton is asking the Gleaner company to remove the article or remove their son Decardo from it altogether.
Our news team was not able to obtain a word from the family of the other officer killed, Corporal Dane Biggs.
More details to come.
