The Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF) is today (June 10) appealing for information as investigators pursue several lines of inquiry in the wake of eight-year-old Danielle Rowe’s death.

Following the confirmation of Rowe’s passing, the JCF, in a public appeal on Saturday, assured that “any information provided will be treated with the utmost confidentiality”.

“We are urgently calling on the public to help us bring the perpetrator(s) of this horrendous act to justice. If you have any information that you believe can assist in solving this case, please do not hesitate to contact us. Your contribution could be pivotal in helping us solve this case and bring closure to the grieving family,” the JCF urged.

Preliminary reports from the JCF indicate that Rowe, a student of the Braeton Primary and Infant School in Portmore, St Catherine, was abducted from school grounds on Thursday.

She was later found with severe injuries along Roosevelt Avenue in St Andrew, and was rushed to the Bustamante Hospital for Children where she was being treated.

Rowe, the daughter of an active JCF corporal attached to the St Catherine South Division, succumbed to her injuries earlier this morning.

In the meantime, the JCF explained that its cross-divisional probe is being undertaken by the St Andrew Central and St Catherine South police divisions.

The JCF Chaplaincy Unit and the wider policing fraternity are said to be providing support to the family.

No motive has yet to be established for the kidnapping and murder.
