The Police are urging persons to desist from circulating a video depicting the crime scene in Wednesday morning’s murder suicide on Waltham Park Road, in Kingston.
Police did not state that the video showed the bodies of the victims but since the shooting, shortly after 7 o’clock on April 10, a video showing the bodies in pools of blood has been in circulation.
Dead are Patrick and Raulene Cowan.
Investigators say the graphic video currently making the rounds on social media is causing extreme distress to the victims’ family and friends.
“It serves no one’s interest to circulate such imagery,” Commanding Officer for the St. Andrew South Division, Superintendent Gary Francis said. He reminded members of the public that the rights of freedom of expression and freedom of speech must be exercised with due sensitivity to the rights of others.
“Consider the dignity of the persons, and how it affects the living,” he said.
