The Area One police are seeking the public’s assistance to find a man who they believe can help in the investigation of the murder of 65-year-old American tourist, Theodore Walling, on Wednesday, March 4.
Walling was found dead about 9.45 am in his room at Hotel Glorianna on Godfrey Dyer Boulevard in Montego Bay, St James. The body was found on the floor with multiple stab wounds.
On Friday night, through Twitter, the police released pictures of the man who is believed to be able to assist them in their investigation of Walling’s death. The police also asked him to turn himself in immediately.
At the time of the murder, the police said it is believed that Walling knew his killer, as there were no signs of forced entry to his hotel room.
Walling, a quality control inspector from Michigan in the United States, was a frequent visitor to the island, and had a love affair with Jamaica.
He posted frequently about the island on his Facebook page, and even changed his status on February 25, that he had moved to Negril. When he was asked if he is staying in Jamaica, he replied, “I should”.
