Patrick Spence

Thirty-six-year-old electrician, Everett Duncan of Greenwich Park, St. Ann, has been charged with murder after he reportedly confessed to the killing of 38-year-old plumber Patrick Spence, otherwise called ‘Andy’ of Bounty Hall, Trelawny.

Spence was reported missing on Friday after numerous attempts by his relatives to contact him failed.

He was last seen on CCTV entering a friend’s car on Thursday, October 8, at a supermarket in Falmouth after parking his own vehicle. 

Spence was later found dead along a dirt track in Runaway Bay, St. Ann, with several stab wounds to the body and the throat slashed.

The Runaway Bay Police were alerted and launched an investigation. Duncan, who was subsequently caught, reportedly confessed to the murder.

He was charged with murder on Sunday and is now awaiting a court day.
