Ten days after a teen was beaten at an illegal party, she is still hanging on to life in a coma at the University Hospital of the West Indies. Meanwhile, justice is being sought, with two women in custody and three still at large.
The police are appealing to the other suspects to turn themselves in immediately even as they ramp up operations to prevent further violence at parties breaching Jamaica’s coronavirus laws. Dozens of people have been injured at illicit parties in recent weeks.
Kaylan Dowdie, 17, a past student of Papine High School, is currently on life support after she was beaten by a group of women on November 7 along Barbican Road.
The party was being held without a permit on Boysie Lane.
