Murder on Little Cayman

| 02/11/2013

(CNS): Perry Steven McLaughlin, a local business man and resident of Little Cayman, has been killed in what appears to be domestic dispute. The 54-year-old man’s body was discovered at his home this morning by one of his employees and the police have arrested McLaughlin’s girlfriend on suspicion of murder. An RCIPS spokesperson said that at around 7am police responded to a call from the employee, who said he had gone to McLaughlin’s house when he was unable to contact him. When he arrived he found the man had been fatally wounded. The police secured the scene and additional officers from Cayman Brac have been sent to the smaller island to assist.

The police helicopter transferred a senior investigating officer and a scenes of crime officer from Grand Cayman to process the scene and commence enquiries. Police arrested McLaughlin’s partner this morning and confirmed they believe this is of a domestic nature. They did not stated how McLaughlin died but other sources suggest that he was stabbed.

Police are continuing with enquires and are asking anyone who may have seen McLaughlin anytime last night and early this morning to contact Detective Inspector Lavine at 526-0661 or Crime Stoppers at 800-TiPS

The RCIPS extends its condolences to the family and friends in the death of McLaughlin. The local man, who was originally from Cayman Brac, owned McLaughlin Car Rentals, McLaughlin Properties Limited and the Iguana Crossing Liquor Store.

The killing comes less than a week after Patrick Leonard Williamson's body was found in a pond behind his home in Courts Road, George Town, on Monday morning. Although police are treating the death of the 35-year-old Jamaican as suspicious, they have still not stated how they believe he died.

McLaughlin is the fifth person to have been murdered in the Cayman Islands this year.
