It has been reported that fashion designer Dexter ‘3D’ Pottinger was found dead at his home in St Andrew this evening.
A police inspector at the scene of murdered fashion designer Dexter Pottinger, says there was a significant amount of blood inside the two-storey Yarico Place, St Andrew house where the body was found Thursday evening.
“Blood was splattered everywhere,” Inspector P Campbell of the St Andrew North Police told The Gleaner.
He said Pottinger’s body, which had multiple wounds, was found face down in his bedroom upstairs.
However, Campbell could not say what caused the injuries.
He said those details would be available after scenes of crimes personnel completed their examination.
But the inspector said the body had started to decompose.
Campbell also declined to say whether the police have been receiving information that could help in their probe.
However, one woman said a neighbour reported hearing cries for “help” and “murder” around 4 o’clock Wednesday morning and some time later, a car drove away from Pottinger’s house.
The woman said, the neighbour reported that she did not raise an alarm because she was unsure of what was happening.
As news of Pottinger’s murder spread, scores of people gathered near his house Thursday evening.
One man who rushed to the house had to be restrained by the police as he tried to go inside.
Although a uniformed police inspector at the entrance to the house told him he could not enter the crime scene, the man attempted the force past.
Pottinger started out in the fashion industry as a model with Saint International and was signed to an agency in London before transitioning to a respected stylist and designer.
In 2015, he was announced as the face of the Dream Frame, DreamCreator Innov-is VQ2400 sewing machine.
