Corporal Jerry Leacock

Regiment denies slain soldier was voice in ISIS-threat voice notes

The acting commanding officer of the T&T Regiment, Colonel Dexter Francis, has dispelled reports made in the media this week linking the death of Corporal Jerry Leacock to voice notes that went viral on social media referencing possible terrorist attacks in T&T.

In a release yesterday, the Regiment's public affairs officer, Captain Stefan Affonso, said "based on investigations thus far, these unfounded links that appear to be confirmed by the media have not been verified and are not linked to Cpl Leacock or any member of the Trinidad and Tobago Regiment.”
