Darian Nedd, 14, a Form One Student of Siparia East Secondary School, was found chopped and burned to death in the ruins of his Red Brick Trace, Siparia, home, early Sunday morning. It was reported that Ned, allegedly witnessed a drug deal and was accused of being an informant to the police by those that were involved.
Fearing for his life, Nedd is said to have gone into hiding for months and had only recently returned home. Eye witnesses report that at around early Sunday morning, two men were seen leaving the Nedd's home on foot after throwing torches at the building. The 14 year old was later found burned to death with his left leg and right hand chopped off.
Police are continuing investigations. They have detained one person and are currently searching for two others in connection with the murder.
Meanwhile, an autopsy is to be done today at the Forensic Science Centre, St James.
