SSP McGregor says during the question and answer session, Thomas disclosed that he had a dispute with the mother of his child and that this played a role in his action.

According to McGregor, Thomas indicated that he was upset with her because he was spending a lot of money to support her but now believed she was having an affair.

SSP McGregor says information gathered by the police indicated that Thomas was involved in lottery scamming.

Thomas was found dead in an abandoned building on Thursday night hours after he escaped police custody.

SSP McGregor says during yesterday’s question and answer session with his lawyer at the Barnett Street Police Station Thomas jumped through a window and ran.

He says information gathered by the police indicate that Thomas subsequently got help to remove his handcuffs and later went into hiding.

SSP McGregor says investigations are being conducted into Thomas’ escape and his murder.
