    Scores of curious onlookers converged in Olympic Gardens yesterday afternoon after the body of a 14-year-old schoolgirl was thrown from a vehicle on Lothian Avenue.

    She has been identified as 14-year-old Hailie Selassie student Sherifa Saddler of a Tower Hill address.

    Information reaching THE STAR is that Saddler’s body was found lying face down on Lothian Avenue off Olympic Way in Kingston 11.

    Investigators said the girl’s tie was tightened around her neck and she had bruises on her face. They are theorising that strangulation was the cause of death.

    Eyewitnesses say she was thrown from a white Mitsubishi motor car which sped off as soon as the body left the vehicle. Her school bag was also thrown into a nearby gully, metres away from the body.

    THE STAR gathered that members of the Flying Squad retrieved the school bag from the gully.

    According to the police, her body was found at approximately 11:30 a.m.

    When THE STAR arrived on the scene, there were scores of high-profile police officers on the ground seemingly scoping the area.

    ACP George Quallo, Area 4 commander, and SSP Delroy Hewitt, divisional commander, were spotted by our news team liaising with Scene of Crime detectives, members of the Flying Squad, and officers attached to the St Andrew South Division who were on hand.

    We keep saying “God a come fi him world” when what we need to do is fight back! Maybe that’s what God wants us to do because if we just sit around keep praying and living in fear this is going to continue to happen.

    Ppl who hurt children, and yes she was a child, need to be killed. I don’t believe in no justice system that stands inside a court room. Street justice. We need to get ignorant like some ppl in Africa do when ppl commit crime especially agianst women and children. Round them up and burn them straight!

  • Foxy Lady says:

    I just saw the picture on FB of the little boy laying in the street and it just clarifies how much our society is obsessed with violence and bloodshed. Why on earth would anyone post such a pic exploiting the young boy even in death?
    C’mon man! People need to have some decency. If that was their child how would they feel about the body being passed around on exhibition? The whole damn society is sick!

  • Rebel says:

    Very sad condolences to the family, what a horrible society Jamaica is turning out to be.
