A Jamaican man living in Antigua was allegedly kidnapped and found dead yesterday.

According to the Antigua Observer, 26-year-old Kenroy Simpson was discovered bloodied and face down at 5:40 am, without shoes or a shirt, after police received reports of his kidnapping.

The police said Simpson sustained multiple gunshot wounds to his body.

Earlier, the lawmen said they responded to a call from Simpson’s home and took a statement from Simpson’s girlfriend, who reported that shortly after midnight four masked men robbed the pair at gunpoint of an undisclosed sum of money.

According to the police, Simpson was allegedly forced into a Toyota Platz car and then driven to the pasture, which is a stone’s throw away from his residence.

The car was seized in the vicinity of Pigotts main road and transported to police headquarters.

Prior to this incident, Simpson was arrested and charged for drug-related offences and was questioned in April in connection to money laundering crimes.
