#JamaicaGleaner #Murder #Suicide #Brighton #StElizabeth #Farmer #MentalIllness JANUARY 7, 2022: Residents in a section of Brighton, St Elizabeth, known as ‘Zoar’ are calling on the Government to establish a unit in the Jamaica Constabulary Force to deal with mental health patients and to train cops in how to interface with them, especially those who are considered dangerous. The call comes following an incident in the area on Monday night that led to the death of two pumpkin farmers in the community. Garnet Grey, 57, is alleged to have been killed by 55-year-old Leonard Morgan, also called ‘Ricky’, who was known to have suffered from mental issues. Morgan, it is suspected, then took his own life by setting himself afire inside his home.
