Clarendon, Jamaica: Man Beheads Cousin, 33-year-old Lincoln McLean After Heated Argument

Shanique Samuels, Gleaner Writer

A dispute between two cousins resulted in one beheading the other in Thompson Town, Clarendon this morning.

Dead is 33-year-old Lincoln McLean, a farmer of Wakefield district, while his cousin, who turned himself in to the police, is facing murder charges. 

Reports reaching The Gleaner-Power 106 News are that the accused and the deceased were involved in an argument over crops, a matter for which both men are before the courts. The argument escalated and the accused used a machete to chop McLean several times before decapitating him. 

This is the second murder in two days in the usually quiet Thompson Town- Mocho area. On Friday, a man used a stone to kill a mentally ill man in Mocho. It's reported that he had had a 20-year-old dispute with the mentally ill man. 

The police in the Thompson Town and Mocho divisions say they are keeping a close watch on both communities. more
