Murdered school teacher found naked

Kendon Berkeley – was killed in his own home

St Andrew school teacher Kendon Berkeley who was murdered last week Friday was discovered totally naked at his home at Telescope.

A police insider told THE NEW TODAY that detectives also discovered two boxes of food in the home, which seemed to suggest that he was having a meal with someone.

He said the body bore acts of violence with a wound from a knife, which came from one side of the neck and protruded right through the other side.

According to the source, Berkeley, who taught at the St Andrew’s Methodist school, was also stabbed in the area of the chest.

Police detectives in Grenada are still trying to get a lead that can help them solve the murder last week of school teacher Kendon Berkeley.

He was reportedly last seen alive just before midday Friday when he dropped-off somebody that he gave a lift in a vehicle.

The source said that Police investigators believe that the assailant was a male and that there were apparent signs of a struggle in the house.

Another police insider familiar with investigations suggested that the current team of detectives on the case should also speak with his girlfriend who had left the house about a month ago to live with his mother.

He said the girlfriend should be brought back into the house to determine whether anything was missing in order to ascertain if the motive was robbery or something else, for the murder.

Police are also said to be looking into reports that the schoolteacher might have been bi-sexual.

The investigations are continuing into the murder.

Meanwhile, the state-owned National Water & Sewerage Authority (NAWASA) has issued a statement on the murder of Berkeley who had done some work for the state body in the past.
