Investigating police officers are calling on members of the public to come forward and divulge any information that will lead them to the killers of security officer Ricardo Dixon who was shot and thrown out of a vehicle in Carlsen Field on Thursday morning.
It is suspected that Dixon, 22, was picked up while he was walking out Bhagna Trace in Chase Village. He was supposed to get a taxi to Chaguanas from the triangle in Chase Village at the top of Bhagna Trace and then from Chaguanas another taxi to his location in Endeavour. It was his first day on the job with Heller Security Services.
An autopsy conducted on Dixon’s body at the Forensic Science Centre said he died from internal and external haemorrhage consistent with gunshot wounds. He was shot in the shoulder, chest, and back.
Dixon’s body was found fully clad in his uniform with beret in tact lying in the middle of the road at Xeres Road in Carlsen Field. Police found five spent shells near to where his body was found. Dixon was the father of a one-year-old girl.
Six years ago Dixon’s brother, Renaldo was stabbed while at school at Waterloo Secondary School in May 2013. He was 14 years and a Form Three pupil. He was stabbed three times and his wrist slit by a Form Five pupil over an argument regarding a girl he was seen talking too at school.
Dixon’s mother Camille Taitt is worried about how she is going to cope both emotionally and mentally having lost both her older sons to crime violence. She is now left with three smaller children and vows to protect them with whatever the means necessary.
Anyone with information are asked to contact the police at 555, 999, 800 TIPS or 482 GARY.
