Police yesterday expressed optimism of solving the murder of R.K security guard, Simone Coleridge, after holding a second man from the Tucville squatting community that is located near to Uncle Eddie’s Home.
The man was being grilled yesterday at CID headquarters, Eve Leary, and a source indicated that investigators have made significant progress in their quest to find Coleridge’s killers.
Meanwhile, the other suspect, who is also from the Tucville squatting area, is still in custody.
According to police sources, the 30-year-old man has had previous brushes with the law and was questioned two weeks ago about a carjacking.
Detectives are attempting to see if his fingerprints match those they lifted from articles that were stolen from the benevolent home and subsequently recovered.
But a relative of the arrested man, said he is gainfully employed as a mason and carpenter.
According to the relative, police alleged that they had received information that a man resembling the resident was seen at Uncle Eddie’s home at the time Coleridge was slain.
He was also arrested about a week before in connection with a carjacking.
Simone Coleridge was bound, gagged and strangled while on duty at Uncle Eddie’s Home.
Her killers escaped with a small refrigerator, a microwave oven and a television set but these items were later found at a location near the nursing home.
An autopsy revealed that the 43-year-old guard was manually strangled.
She also suffocated when the killers stuffed a piece of cloth in her mouth, but did not appear to have been sexually assaulted.
