André Williams, STAR Writer

Quick and decisive thinking on the part of a taxi operator may have led to the successful capture of the alleged killers of a US citizen, who was reportedly stabbed to death in St Ann.

Information reaching THE STAR is that a group of men are in custody in relation to the death of 41-year-old Dwight Ashall, whose previous visit to the island was in 2011.

Reports are that on the night of Ashall's death, he was visited by a group of men about 11p.m.

THE STAR gathered that shortly after, his body was found with numerous stab wounds.

Our news team understands that a taxi operator, while transporting the accused men, realised bloodstains on the garments of the passengers and drove directly to the Discovery Bay Police Station.

THE STAR was told that the men were questioned and a police team went to the premises where they found Ashall with what appeared to be multiple stab wounds.

When our news team contacted the St Ann police, THE STAR was told that the matter is still being investigated, and that no arrest has been made.
