A child, two-year-old Deandre Vanhorne perished in a fire that destroyed his home in Frome, Westmoreland last night, Monday, December 7.
According to the Savanna-La-Mar Police, Denadre, was left in the care of his grandmother, when an argument developed between the woman and her common-law-husband around 10:30 pm.
Shortly after, fire was seen coming from a section of the house and the police summoned. The Savanna-la-Mar Fire Department responded to the scene and extinguished the fire. Later, the charred remains of Deandre were found. The fire is believed to be arson.
The police now seek the public’s assistance in locating Norman Stewart, otherwise called ‘Kiro’ or ‘Bush Doctor’, the common law husband of the grandmother who might be able to assist with the investigations.
Anyone knowing the whereabouts of Norman Stewart is urged to contact the Savanna-la-Mar Police at 955-2758, the police’s emergency 119 number or the nearest police station.
