Tell what you know - Thriller U begs public for info on dad's death
Reggae artiste Eustace Hamilton, more popularly known as Thriller U from the group L.U.S.T, is urging the public to come forward with any information that could lead to the arrest of the person or persons responsible for the death of his adopted father, Thadious Jamison.
The singer told THE STAR that investigations by the police so far have turned in no tangible leads and laments that the family is no closer to getting justice for their beloved.
"The police are still investigating. They have no leads, no rope, no length, no nothing," a distressed Thriller U said. "I don't know what to say, it seems like dem a drag dem foot. We get updates yes, but nothing substantial. Last time we spoke was when they were sending condolences on the post-mortem because dem hear we can't have a burial."
While he believes the police aren't doing enough with the investigations, the artiste expressed that perhaps the law enforcers could do with a little assistance from the public.
"Dem still investigating, dem seh. Maybe dem just having problems getting the information.
"I'm asking people to come forward if yuh see what happened. Don't be afraid, the police will protect you," he said.
Thriller U said he would be leaving the matter in the police's hands "Because me nah nuh badman friend. Me nuh grow bad, so me just a hope say we get some positive news soon."
The Spanish Town police are heading the investigations.
In the meantime, Thriller U and his family are putting the final touches on preparations for the funeral. He revealed that the thanksgiving service will be held this Saturday at the Greendale United Church in Spanish Town at 3 p.m.
He also revealed that there would be no interment and said a later date would be announced for the cremation ceremony.
"His body had deteriorated bad, bad and so we cannot have a burial. My daddy had always requested that (cremation), but we didn't even get the chance to decide because of the deterioration," he said. "We didn't have a choice, they had buried him. A dig we dig him outta the grung, enuh. His body was very decomposed."
The 'set-up' is scheduled for this Friday in the Mount Moreland district of St Catherine. Thriller U says it is an open celebration of Jamison's life and therefore welcomes the support of the public.
Jamison's body was found in a shallow grave on Simon main road in Tredegar Park, St Catherine, late last month after he had been missing for a few days. He was 72 years old.
