A man is on the run after the body of a 8 year-old, his stepdaughter, was found dead in a house which he shared with the child and her mother in Sligoville St Catherine.
Dead is 8 year-old Kwana Satchwell.
According to reports, the child was left in the care of the stepfather while her mother went to work.
Upon her return at about 12 midnight, she discovered her daughter laying motionless, wrapped in a white sheet on the bed.
According to the child's biological father, Dave Satchwell, the accused told others that the child refused to wash the dishes earlier and had fainted so he brought her unconscious body into the bedroom, wrapped her in a sheet, and she suffocated.
The story sounds all fake as both witnesses and the child's mother noticed that the child was strangled.
An alarm was raised but sadly the accused had already left the community.
While the police are investigating the matter they are asking the public to assist them with any information leading to the whereabouts of the man seen in the above photo on the right.
