FRIDAY, JAN. 6: Detectives in Jamaica are waiting on the results of forensic tests conducted on bullet casings and a gun found close to where a Bermudian woman was shot dead.

Businesswoman Karen Lewis, pictured right, and her driver, Everton Daley, were murdered inside her Ms Lewis’s home last Friday night.

The caretaker, who looked after the property while Ms Lewis was in Bermuda, is still in police custody but has not been charged.

Police recovered a Glock revolver just 45 yards from the murder scene, which they believe was used in the shooting, as well as several bullet casings.

They have been sent away for forensic examination and a post mortem is expected to be carried out at the weekend.

Last night the officer in charge of the murder investigation told the Sun that Jamaican police had been working with their counterparts in the Bermuda Police Force to crack the crime.

Deputy Superintendent Berrisford Brown said: “We are awaiting the results of forensic tests from the scene.

“We recovered a gun as well as several bullet casings and we will know more once we know the results of the forensic tests.

“One man remains in custody at this time. He has not been charged and no other arrests have been made.

“It is too early to say whether Ms Lewis was deliberately targeted and we are still trying to determine a motive for this attack.

“We have been getting some good co-operation from the local community and the investigation is progressing. A number of people have been interviewed by officers and statements have been taken.”
