Superintendent Marlon Nesbeth, head of the St. James Police, says investigators are close to making a breakthrough as they probe the murder of 15 year-old Shineka Grey.

“We are far advanced and I’m giving the assurance that we will be having a breakthrough in this matter,” Nesbeth said.

He said investigators were questioning an individual who they believe could assist with the probe.

Shineka's decomposed body, which had stab wounds, was found in Meadows of Irwin in St. James Wednesday afternoon.

The Green Pond High School student was last seen alive on Sunday after attending a funeral.
