October 13, 2012 - Police are investigating after a man and a woman were found dead early Saturday morning outside a motel in the Bronx.


Police say they found a 50-year-old man and a 38-year-old woman with gunshot wounds to the head in the parking lot of the Holiday Motel just after 3 a.m. Saturday.

Both were pronounced dead at the scene by EMS.

Police say there are no arrests at this time and the investigation is ongoing.

The man has since being identify as veteran dancehall artiste Captain Barkey.


Wickerman has confirmed that Captain Barkey was involved in a dangerous love triangle with a married woman, which may have ultimately led to his death in a parking lot of a hotel in the Bronx, New York.

"Mi warn him nuff time because the man is a serious man....him all run down Barkey and the woman already and broadside him car, and Barkey still never waan hear," said Wickerman.

"Mi warn the man man countless times, and the woman married, and she nah lef the man and she still have Barkey. The man trail dem nuff times, and is like the man did waan kill the woman long time but him ah wait till him get she and Barkey together before him do something.

Short Bio

Born Wayne Hamilton, 5th of November , Jamaica, West Indies.

Captain Barkey followed the usual path to prominence, performing on a number of sound systems in Jamaica. He established a notable reputation performing as a resident DJ with the Stereo One sound system alongside Wickerman and Lieutenant Stitchie.

In 1991 he recorded "Gun" and "Original Get And No Chat" for Steely And Clevie, which were popular hits in both the dancehall and on the reggae charts. Following on from the unprecedented success of Shaggy's version of the Folks Brothers' "Oh Carolina", he recorded "Slow Type Of Death" over Brian And Tony Gold's remake of the hit with King Jammy.

His hit was featured on the one-rhythm Carolina My Darling, along with two other cuts from the Captain, "Teck A Man Woman" and the similar "Wok A Man Woman".

Well i have no sympathy for barkey or that married woman. The killer wafs a good family oriented man who worked hard and provided everything for his wife and their 2 children,including her older daughter that is not his. The woman obviously did not want barkey because if she did she would of get the fuck out of her husbands house to go and be with her lover barkey.She refused to get out of the husbands house. THE WOMAN TOLD BARKEY She is not leaving her husband, that is why he taunted the man with the song nah lef joe.The killer died 4 days later in florida. I think he was killed by the police.he exchanged gunfire with the police officers.

I feel bad about what happened to them. I feel like the man knew his girl and da captain were dating and wouldn't stop. What da man should of done was let dem gwon . Sometimes u have to let people break their own necks instead of u break it. I know love hurts sometimes but it's not worth going to jail for da rest of your life for one person. Think about it if u go to prison u are loosing out anyways so just move on and find somethin better

Captain barkey caused his own death by mocking Joe(Country) in his song. He should not have messing with a married woman.

I feel no pity for barkey he knows better. people must learn when you meet someone and they are involve don,t get in the mix, when you think its a secret an nuh one else knows someone elses do no matter where you go is not who we know but who know we.

Vegas-try find a decent girl, not a vanity person but someone humble, barkey u get nothing from me, you leave Jamaica an let pussy tek u life shame.
