Cops charge Forbes murder suspects

| 14/10/2010

(CNS): Police have now charged two of the men arrested in connection with the killing of Jack Forbes with murder. Forbes (49) was reportedly beaten to death at a shopping plaza in Bodden Town in the evening of 15 October. The two men who are aged 20 and 35 years have not been named but are due to appear in court tomorrow. Police arrested four men in connection with the killing but two have since been released on bail. Forbes body was discovered by paramedics at the Plazza Odessa who were unable to revive the man who has sustained numerous wounds after what was described by witnesses as an attack by several people.

Forbes had recently been released from Northward prison after serving some ten years on a manslaughter charge for the killing of Steve Watler in May 2000. His murder is the seventh of this year and the first not to involve a firearm.
Police have had considerable success in solving this year’s killings as charges have been brought in all but one of the seven murders though 2010. Police have yet to solve the killing of 32 year old Courtney Spence who was gunned down on the night of 28 January in George Town. Spence was found in the car park of where he worked as a production manager for Progressive Distributors in Sparky Drive, in the industrial area at around 11:10pm after finishing his shift.
