(JAMAICA STAR) – Reggae/dancehall artiste Safira Mono is offering a J$1 million reward to anyone who may have witnessed the murder of her husband, Renaldo ‘Stick a Fire’ Farquharson, at their home on Ash Wednesday, February 26.
“I know there is someone out there who knows exactly what happened and who did it, and I am begging you to just speak what you know,” she said.
According to a report from the Corporate Communications Unit (CCU), residents of Tryall Heights in Spanish Town, St Catherine, reported hearing explosions and summoned the police.
The lawmen found Farquharson, 32, lying in a pool of blood. He was taken to the Spanish Town Hospital where he was pronounced dead.
