Police crack College of Agriculture, Science and Education lecturer murder

Cops crack CASE lecturer murder

Police have cracked the murder case involving 44-year-old CASE lecturer Cyprian Moncrieffe. Moncrieffe was found brutally murdered in his bed, Monday, September 9 last year, in Portland. Reliable sources have told a media outlet that police have arrested one man and are seeking two others in the killing. 

The Times has details of the police arrest and what they now know but the newspaper is withholding the information as police say its release now would compromise the investigations. Cops would only say that the man arrested was known to Moncreiffe and didn’t act alone. 

Mr Moncrieffe was found dead near mid-day, in a flat where he lived alone, on the campus of the College of Arts Science and Education (CASE), near Port Antonio. Police found his body in his bed with two knives stuck in the back of his head. The savagery of the attack led police to suspect what they called a “crime of passion”. They claimed that Moncrieffe’s killer might have known him as there was no forced entry to the flat. 

A lap top and his Honda CRV motor vehicle were taken but police said it was obviously not intended as a robbery as several valuable items were left untouched.
Police investigations initially suggested that Moncrieffe was killed between Friday September 6 and Sunday September 8. An alarm was raised when the usually punctual Moncreiffe was not seen at school Monday morning. 

Before police were called to the campus, Monday, September 9 Moncrieffe had been reported missing and, in a missing person report, police said “Moncrieffe left CASE in his motor car, sporting a pair of black jeans pants, a pair of grey-and-aqua Nike shoes and a white polo shirt.” They said he had been last seen Friday, September 6.
