A man who described for police investigators how Simone Campbell-Collymore, wife of popular businessman Omar ‘Best’ Collymore, screamed as he and a crony sprayed her taxi with bullets, has pleaded guilty to two counts of murder.
Wade Blackwood, 24, also pleaded guilty to two counts each of illegal possession of firearm and ammunition in the Home Circuit Court in downtown Kingston today.
Winston Walters, the owner and operator of the ill-fated taxi, was also shot to death in the January 2, 2018 attack at the entrance to Campbell-Collymore’s Forest Ridge apartment complex on Stanley Terrace, Red Hills.
A post-mortem revealed that Campbell-Collymore was shot 19 times and died from “multiple gunshot wounds to the chest and abdomen, with injuries to the lung, liver and right kidney”.
Walters was shot five times and died as a result of a gunshot wound to the head, according to a post-mortem report cited in court documents.
