The Mandeville police are now on the scene of the crime which took place in the home of a couple who are both in their 70’s.

Reports are that the couple had an appointment this morning for which they didn’t show up. Upon attempts to make contact with them it proved futile, when persons went to check at their house they discovered blood on the verandah of their Woodstock District home.

The couple is thought to be wealthy and this may be in connection with a robbery. It is not clear if the house was searched at the time but the authorities were alerted.

Just a short while ago, the couple was discovered dead in a room of their house, both of their throats were slashed.
