According to a highly-placed police source, the DeeJay who is already facing charges of murder, conspiracy to murder and illegal possession of a firearm, could be at the centre of police investigations into two additional murders.
“We definitely are looking into his role in the double murder of two men in Portmore (St Catherine),” the source said.
Kartel is facing multiple felony charges including a murder charge in connection with the July murder of Barrington ‘Bossie’ Burton, a 27-year-old businessman/promoter of a Gregory Park address in St Catherine. Burton was murdered while standing with friends along Walker’s Avenue in Gregory Park.
Attorney Tom Tavares-Finson told reporters this week that during the hearing (which was closed to the public) the court was informed that two men are to be charged jointly with Palmer for Burton’s murder.
Palmer is remanded into police custody until today when the case against him will be mentioned for a bail application to be heard.
The artiste was arrested two Fridays ago, along with three other persons, at a hotel in New Kingston by cops from the Flying Squad.
