                                                A steamy DVD found with the bodies of Candice and Phoebe
                                                last week and statements about a love triangle that went all

                                                of two women in their 20s strongly suggests this.

                                                The bodies of 20-year-old Candice Williams and Phoebe Myrie,
                                                22, were found dumped in a pit at a home they shared in
                                                Taylor Land, Bull Bay, last week Wednesday, and police
                                                investigations are now confirming rumours of a 'murder of

                                                wanted for questioning in the matter.

                                                Police who were on the scene when the bodies were found,
                                                say the evidence found at the scene, suggested that the

                                     when the bodies were taken from the pit.

                                     Police confirm that an adult DVD case, sheets, and a pillow
                                     were found in the pit along with the bodies of the young

                                     Although residents of Taylor Land expressed "mixed feelings"
                                     toward the alleged lesbian couple, they all concur that they
                                     were much more than friends. "Everybody know a two lesbian
                                     dem dat. U fi see how one a dem timid like gal, an di oda one

                                     said a resident.

                                     "Mi hear seh a lef one a dem lef her baby fada fi di nex uman,
                                     an tek di baby carry guh live," said another resident.

                                     CHAT ROOM

                                     Statements given to the police by a relative of one of the
                                     deceased confirmed a lesbian affair between the two women,
                                     and explained the history of the affair, including the conflict
                                     over the child.

                                     According to the relative's report, the two young women met
                                     in a cellular 'chat room,' earlier in the year (when Candice was
                                     still living with the father of her child), adding that the
                                     common-law husband not only knew about the budding
                                     relationship, but actually encouraged it.

                                     The police document highlighted the temporary presence of a
                                     third woman at the house, but due to her alleged "nasty
                                     ways," she was soon asked to leave. It is also said that Myrie
                                     would go and stay with another female friend with whom she
                                     was also intimately involved.

                                     The statement indicated that Candice slowly progressed from
                                     a bi-sexual, to an outright lesbian, which led her to end the
                                     relationship with her common-law husband, who soon after,
                                     left the premises. The relative wrote that a conflict began
                                     when Candice decided to keep their child.

                                     "Due to the cooperation of citizens, this case will soon be
                                     cleared up. We have leads on the only person wanted for
                                     questioning in the matter, and should apprehend him before
                                     next week," said Ins. Williams.

                                     "We are now appealing to Mr. Lewis that he come to the
                                     station as we need to ask him some questions ... Right now
                                     we know every move he makes and it is in his best interest to
                                     come in," said Ins. Williams.

                                     "We heard that they were very, very good friends, and they
                                     were killed because they were very good friends ... True or
