Vybz Kartel murder trial: Accused said victim 'ran away'

ON TRIAL: Vybz Kartel

ONE OF the men jointly accused with dancehall star Vybz Kartel of murdering a Jamaican businessman, allegedly sent a text suggesting the victim had run away.

Detective corporal Shawn Brown made a PowerPoint presentation of the text messages that believed to be sent by Shawn ‘Shawn Storm’ Campbell on August 16, 2011, the same day that Clive ‘Lizard' Williams was reportedly killed over two missing guns.

William's body was never found.

But in one of the messages read in court, Campbell allegedly texted an unknown person on August 20, 2011 asking if he/she had heard that Williams had run away.

And in messages reportedly sent a day after the alleged murder, the accused told someone: “a di bwoy brown tief dem and run weh”.

In another message, Campbell texted the unknown person saying he did not know why they are running away if they did not do anything.

The jurors heard text message evidence suggesting that Williams feared for his life after being summoned to visit Vybz Kartel.

Kartel is jointly charged with Campbell, a fellow entertainer, Kahira Jones, Shane Williams and Andre St John for the August 16, 2011 murder of Williams.
