Woman Murdered at Her home on Sunday in Buff Bay
A Portland woman – Stacy-Ann Wellington of Diamond, Buff Bay – was murdered at her home on Sunday evening, bringing to 12 the number of homicides that have been recorded in the parish so far this year.
Reports are that shortly after 6:00 p.m., residents of the community heard explosions and called the police.
On the arrival of a response team, Wellington’s body was reportedly found outside her house in a pool of blood with multiple gunshot wounds.
She was taken to hospital, where she was pronounced dead.
Early investigations suggest that the killing may have been linked to a domestic dispute that Wellington allegedly had with a man earlier that day.
Indications are that it was the fourth murder in Buff Bay since the start of the year.
