Popular dancehall/reggae Entertainer donates casket to Mario Deane’s family

KINGSTON, Jamaica —The Attorney representing the interests of the family of Mario Deane, Miguel Lorne, has confirmed that a popular entertainer has donated a casket and offered to lend his escalade to transport Deane’s body during his funeral on Saturday.

According to Lorne the entertainer said the gesture was a show of solidarity with the relatives and the cause of seeking justice.

“He does not want to be named, as he needs no lights or cameras. This is a gesture from his heart as he is really moved by the incident,” the artiste told OBSERVER ONLINE.

The casket will have Deane’s photograph inscribed on the top.

Deane died in hospital three days after suffering a beating while in the custody of the Barnett Street Police in Montego Bay.

His relatives have rejected an offer from the government to pay part of his funeral expenses.

His death was ruled a homicide by renowned pathologist Michael Baden.

Five cops have been suspended and are due to go on an identification parade.

The Independent Commission of Investigations (INDECOM) is probing the matter.
