At around 9:30 am, beachgoers had alerted the authorities after discovering a partially decomposing body floating in the water.

Investigators said the body was found in a semi-nude state with what appeared to be a wound to the head, reports Loop.

Social media influencer Townsend was positively identified by her mother earlier on Saturday.

And according to reports, police may have found two key clues to her tragic death.


A towel covered in what appeared to have been blood and a wig were among items removed from the scene. 

Jamaican cops said they had identified a person of interest linked to the killing of Townsend – also known as ‘Kayan’.

Police had asked Rushane “Chizzie” Patterson of Hanover to turn himself over at the Freeport Police Station by 5:00 pm on Saturday to assist with their investigations.

Vernon Ellis, Senior Superintendent of Police and commander of the St James Police Division said: “We have Rushane Patterson of Prosper, Hanover as a person of interest in this investigation and we are asking him to turn himself in to the police by 5:00 pm.”

However, cops are now reporting that Patterson is nowhere to be found after the deadline passed.

SSP Ellis also reported that a motor vehicle has been seized in relation to the police probe into the matter.

He said: “A series of operations have been conducted this morning in a neighbouring parish and a vehicle was recovered.”
