(JAMAICA OBSERVER) – A Jamaican woman, originally from Ballard’s Valley, St Elizabeth, was found dead on Father’s Day in her Georgia apartment after she failed to show up for work.

Investigators theorise that 42-year-old Dr Samantha Banton Woolery had been stabbed to death the day prior.

According to co-workers of the deceased, Woolery’s failure to show up for work was cause for concern, leading them to contact the police.

The police have reportedly taken her ex-husband, 49-year-old Mickey Anthony Woolery, into custody.
