Police investigators probing the murder of opposition political activist Courtney Crum-Ewing have obtained the man’s mobile phone records and have been making contact with the persons who may have been in contact with him on the same day that he was shot dead in the Diamond Housing Scheme.
Although there are no suspects in the execution styled killing, investigators are hoping that the phone records could assist them with their probe. A number of persons who contacted Crum-Ewing before his death or tried to make contact with him on the night that he was killed have been questioned by the Police. They have all been cleared of any connection, News Source understands.
CCTV security cameras in the Diamond community have provided little help. The activist was gunned down while walking through the streets of Diamond with a loud hailer encouraging citizens to vote the PPP out of office. Political watchers and commentators appear convinced that his murder was politically motivated.
Crum-Ewing had carried out a one man protest outside the office of the Attorney General for months and he had complained to the police about threats that were being made against his life. He had complained that the police were not taking his concerns about the threats seriously enough.
The 40-year-old was shot five times. Three of those shots were to the head at close range. At first, investigators believed that the incident was a drive by shooting but based on the post mortem examination, he may have been approached and shot at close range.
