The man, 21-year-old Damion White, died Wednesday night in the St. Ann's Bay Hospital, after he was transferred from the Annotto Bay Hospital. He was beaten and chopped by the residents, after they discovered the body of 16-year-old Althea Dick in Enfield on Tuesday morning.

White is from Golden Grove in St. Thomas.

The police report that White, who was wanted by the police in connection with the death of Dick, was held by residents on the St. Mary Banana Estate.
