A hunt has been launched for a detainee who reportedly escaped from the Montego Bay Police Lock-Up in St. James on Saturday.
The police report that Fahdean Ferguson, 21, was an Independent Commission of Investigations (INDECOM) witness in the high level probe in the death of Mario Deane.
RJR News understands that on the weekend , INDECOM personnel arranged an identification parade for three cops who were reportedly on duty at the Barnett Street lock-up on August 3 – the day on which Deane was beaten.
Ferguson, reportedly pointed out the police officers.
Following the exercise, arrangements were being made to take Ferguson back to the Barnett Street Lock-Up when he escaped through a window.
The Police High Command has ordered a probe into the circumstances surrounding Ferguson’s escape.
INDECOM officials are also concerned about his safety.
A statement from the police on Sunday said Ferguson, who is also known as Tussain and Joshua,is a mechanic of Hampton in Spring Mount, St. James.
He is of dark complexion, medium build and about 5 feet 8 inches tall.
He has tear drops tattooed below his right eye and scars over both eyes.
He was being held on charges of house breaking and burglary.
At the time of his escape he was wearing a white merino and pink shorts.
