Conditions just took a turn for the absolute worst for the enigmatic Dancehall superstar Alkaline, given name Earlan Bartley.
The deejay is scheduled to remain in custody over the following weekend as police further their interrogation of the ‘Champion Boy’ deejay.
“Police have wrapped up their questioning of Bartley and he remains in custody at this time,” Superintendent Stephanie Lindsay, head of the police Corporate Communication Unit (CCU), said on Friday evening.
According to Bartley’s attorney, Peter Champagnie, indicated that he would file to have the entertainer released on Monday.
On Tuesday the Criminal Investigation Branch of the Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF) released a statement saying Alkaline was wanted for questioning in relation to the murder of Morris as cops believe the deejay can assist with the investigation. The deejay reported to the Area 4 police headquarters in Kingston at 9:25 am on Thursday, before being transferred to the Criminal Investigation Branch to face more questioning.
The murder victim, 28-year-old Morris was reportedly shot more than 15 times at his home in Oaks Garden, St Andrew last month allegedly beside his 5-year-old daughter. Sources say the 28-year-old unemployed man was slaughtered while next to a five year old child believed to be his daughter.
The killing of Morris is said to be linked to an ongoing feud between two gangs in the community of Maverley, which Alkaline is believed to have the ability to assist the police in an apprehension of the crime committers.
