The Police High Command says investigators have now collected 15 statements in their probe into the beating and shooting death of St Ann man Ian Lloyd by the police last Thursday.

Lloyd, who was also known as ‘Ching Sing’ was beaten and then shot dead by the police in a video recorded incident in full view of residents.

He had allegedly earlier stabbed 66-year-old Lovelita Wilson to death.

The high command says eight of the statements were provided by police personnel and the other seven by members of the public.

At the same time, the Major Investigation Taskforce (MIT) which has taken over the case is appealing to anyone with information to call 948-1329 or 922-5344.

A postmortem has been scheduled for tomorrow on the body Lloyd.

Meanwhile, three policemen remain in custody in connection with Ching Sing’s killing.

Oswest Senior Smith, the lawyer representing two of the policeman has filed a writ of habeas corpus in the St Ann Resident Magistrate Court demanding that his clients be either charged or released.

Resident Magistrate Carolyn Tie is expected to make a ruling on the application tomorrow.

Senior Smith has accused the St Ann police of disregarding the rights of the policemen by holding them in custody without charge.

He has also taken issue with the fact that investigators have yet not completed their probe.
