Sad Times in Sandside,St. Mary

I have read many things in the Jamaica Observer, but this by far is the saddest thing I have ever read. The body of 11-year old Aakim Scott was found stuffed in a plastic bag on Tuesday, (the day after her was reported missing).

Aakim's mother

His dismembered body was found stuffed in a 100-pound polyethylene bag, with the limbs and head separated from the torso, which was cut in two.

Aakim, who lived with his mother Andrea Ffolkes, and 70-year-old grandfather, was last seen on Sunday evening when he went to a house in the district, where two of the teenage suspects live, to charge his cellular telephone. The child's relatives and residents of the district became suspicious when he did not return and launched a search which led them to the premises where the teenagers lived.

The teens wee found to be in possession of the child's cellpone. The irate relatives (an other community members) burned down the suspects home. This is Jamaican justice. Sometimes if you wait for the police things will never get done.

I feel sorry that then burned down the suspects homes, but what kind of monsters would dismember a child, then stuff his body in a plastic bag (and this was this woman's only child.)
The observer states,
"police were unable to confirm that the boy was sodomized before he was murdered."
