Police Think NYC Model Found With Throat Slashed In Jamaica Knew Her Killers
Sadly, 26- year-old model Desiree Gibbon made headlines recently, not for her ambition to travel and work but because she was found brutally murdered in Jamaica, after only being on the island for about a month.
Now police are looking to question 2 women Desiree met recently, who they believe have answers about her death.
According to NY Daily News, Jamaica Constabulary Force Supt. Michael Phipps said investigators believe Desiree Gibbon, 26, partied with an acquaintance the night before she was found on the side of a road with her throat slit. Gibbon left the guesthouse owned by her family about 11 p.m. Saturday with her phone but no purse, Phipps said.
A preliminary investigation revealed that she hit several bars in Montego Bay. But Gibbon’s boyfriend, Phil Rodriguez, told The News that she had complained about having problems with some new friends she met during her trip. “Some friends were responsible, law-abiding citizens with jobs but she also made friends with what she called ‘poor girls’ from the other side of town,” Rodriguez said
“I wouldn’t be surprised at all if she made what she thought was friends but they were actually plotting against her.”
Another peculiar fact in connection to Desiree’s murder, Gibbons’ mom Andrea received a fraud alert when she tried to make a purchase on her CitiBank card. The card was linked to the victim’s phone — and bank officials told Andrea that someone had tried to make a wire transfer.
Gibbon’s mother also suspect that she was lured to the area where she was killed by someone she trusted.
‘She never traveled by herself. She didn’t leave the hotel by herself. She always left with somebody,’ Andrea Gibbon said. ‘They would take a car service provided by the hotel and the same driver would take them and drop them and bring them back.’
SMH, so sad. Police are still investigating this case.
