By Benjamin Flowers: Police say that the investigation into the murder of 23-year-old Tariq Ciego will be a difficult one, in terms of gathering evidence.
Ciego was shot and killed in the early morning of Monday, May 2, while heading to his vehicle which was parked in the parking lot at the MCC Grounds.
Assistant Superintendent of Police Fitzroy Yearwood, head of communications for the office of the commissioner of police, said that initial investigations revealed that Ciego was leaving an event being held at the Princess Hotel poolside around 2:30 a.m. when he was killed. His body was found by attendees who were leaving the event around 4:00 a.m.
“We are examining several different angles [but] we are at a loss for right now. We know that in the daytime you can always see security visible in a little booth in that parking lot…at night the security tends to lock [the booth]. So we would have to do a lot of investigating for this one,” Yearwood said.
Yearwood added that he was unaware of any criminal history or any previous altercation that may have led to Ciego’s murder.
Investigations into the matter continue.
