Mother and daughter beheaded in their home

VICTIMS: Charmaine Rattray and her 19-year-old daughter, Joyette Lynch

TWO WOMEN were found beheaded in their home in Jamaica last Wednesday (July 13).

The decapitated bodies of Charmaine Rattray and her 19-year-old daughter, Joyette Lynch, were found on a bed inside their home in Spanish Town, a southern city known for its violent gangs, but their heads were not found in the property, reports Associated Press (AP),

It has also been reported that the killings took place near where 18-year-old Clansman gang member, Scott Thomas, was found beheaded on Monday (July 18).

Some residents in the crime-ridden area fled their homes following the slayings of Ms Rattrray and her daughter Joyette, fearing for their lives.

Authorities say they believe that the killings are related to a power struggle within the Clansman and rival group, the One Order gang.

Over the past year, the Jamaican government's offensive against Spanish Town gangs has created power vacuums.

Spanish Town resident, Rosemarie Green, who founded the group Spanish Town Citizens Against Gun Violence when her brother was killed about seven years ago, said she was deeply disturbed by the decapitations.

"I've never heard of beheadings here before. It's a weird thing. I'm very concerned about it," she told AP.
