Hunt still on for social worker's murderer
Rasbert Turner, STAR Writer

The police in St Catherine are still to find the person who shot and killed a social worker in the Thompson Pen community on the weekend.

The social worker has been identified as former Jamaica Defence Force soldier, Edward Bunari. The 45-year-old man was an employee of the Spanish Town Peace and Justice Centre in St Catherine.

Police reports are that during the power outage on Saturday, the social worker was a patron at a bar in the Thompson Pen area when he was shot and killed by a gunman.

''I am saddened by the news of his untimely death,as it was a few days earlier that we were in discussion as to the vision shared for the development of Spanish Town. In fact, he had expressed the belief that the area was on a path of redemption, so it is very sad,'' Dennis Robotham, president of the St Catherine Chambers of Commerce and Industry, said.

Persons who had worked with Bunari said that he was a dedicated worker, and that he left a void that would be hard to fill.
