Dancehall artist Alkaline has turned himself in to Police for questioning in relation to a murder case, Hype Life Magazine has learned.
The “Badness It Name” deejay, whose real name is Earlan Bartley, reportedly arrived at the Area 4 police headquarters in Kingston at 9:25 am on Thursday. He was dressed in a red shirt, blue denim jeans pants and a red cap.
Alkaline was wanted for questioning in relation to the murder of Rohan “Head” Morris of Three Oaks Garden in St Andrew. Morris was shot more than 15 times by armed thugs at his home in January.
The killing is reportedly linked to an ongoing feud between two gangs in the community of Maverley.
Bartley was transferred to the Criminal Investigation Branch headquarters just after midday for another round of questioning.
“It is believed that (Alkaline) can assist (police) with the investigations,” according to news release from the Jamaica Constabulary Force said.
Through his attorney, the “Live Life” entertainer made contact with authorities, advising that he would turn himself over to the police for questioning on Thursday morning.
Alkaline, who is being represented by popular defense attorney Peter Champagnie, reportedly remained in police custody until Friday, February 10, when questioning was resumed.
