KINGSTON, Jamaica – The opposition People’s National Party (PNP) is grieving the loss of a second member in just a week after a former councillor was killed in her house yesterday, only eight days after one of its Members of Parliament was found dead, also at home.

Marjorie ‘Madge’ Morris was fatally shot at her residence on Albion Boulevard in Yallahs, St Thomas. Police said neighbours reported hearing explosions around 6:30 a.m., and when lawmen responded to the call, the 67-year-old PNP stalwart was found with multiple gunshot wounds, on her kitchen floor.

Morris, who previously served as councillor for the White Horses Division in the St Thomas Municipal Corporation, was murdered as the PNP still tries to come to grips with the brutal killing of MP for East Portland Dr Lynvale Bloomfield, whose body was found with multiple stab wounds on February 2.

In a statement issued after Morris’ killing, PNP General Secretary Julian Robinson said the murder had shocked and saddened the party.

He said it had “compounded the dampened spirit and sorrow among the entire membership of the organization who are preoccupied with the burial arrangement of Dr Bloomfield”.
