The West Kingston police have taken a man and a woman into custody for questioning in relation to the abduction and murder of Nile Brown.

Brown's body was found in a barrel in St Thomas on Sunday.

Head of the Kingston Western Police, Superintendent Howard Chambers, said the two suspects were apprehended at an apartment in Denham Town, where Brown lived.

They are to be interviewed by detectives this week, following which a determination will be made on where to proceed with the investigation.

THE STAR gathered that forensic evidence has been taken from Brown's home.

Scores of angry residents converged on the apartment and watched as the suspects were being led out under heavy police guard.

Brown, a former Burger King employee, had been reported missing last week.

The police said a wire was found around her neck and her hands were bound behind her back. It is believed she was strangled.
