Arrest made for murder of John Paul Fernandez

vlcsnap-2013-05-30-20h40m45s116Earlier this month, the body of 32 year old John Paul Fernandez was found dead inside the compound of the Palm Island bar, located on the Philip Goldson Highway. He had a gunshot wound to the right side of his head, but at the time, that was the only information his family had regarding the circumstances of his death. Well, today, the family of John Paul Fernandez is perhaps one more step closer to getting answers and justice. That’s because someone has been arrested in connection to Fernandez’s vlcsnap-2013-05-30-20h40m58s249murder. He is 40 year old security guard Eduardo Rudulpho Torres and he has been charged with manslaughter by negligence. When we spoke with the victim’s brother, he told us that on the day before Lewis’ body was found, Lewis had just reached home from a Bar B-Que, when someone visited him at his home.  His brother stressed that his brother would not have gone out with anyone, unless it was someone whom he knows well.
