KINGSTON, Jamaica Jamaican police said Monday they are trying to determine the motive in the weekend slayings of two American missionaries in the north coast area where they lived and worked.
A team of officers is interviewing residents of St. Mary parish in northern Jamaica where the bodies of Randy Hentzel, 48, and Harold Nichols, 53, were found in bushes along a rural road where they were traveling on motorbikes.

Robbery most likely.
Traveling while white. Always dangerous.
If you are not in the controlled environment of a resort its the equal of a crap gehto with a beach and even still the resorts suck.
I found that out in the 60’s going in and out with the CG.
Any time after that if some one said they were going I would do my best to change there mind
Very sad. Jamaica is very hostile territory once you venture outside of the cruise ship zone, and in fact, more and more visitors don’t even leave the ship. This applies mostly to whites, but even black Americans have had problems with the local population.
That reminds me of the song “Safe European Home” by the Clash regarding Jamaica:
“I went to the place where every white face is an invitation to robbery.
And sitting here in my safe European home, I don’t want to go back there again.”
I spent 6 months in Jamaica as a guest of the government.....
From Kingston to Ocho Rios....
Outside of the 5 ruling families, most are incredibly poor... some very good people but there are the unbelievably dangerous ones....I’ve been through the slums of Kingston by myself, visited the Tower Street Adult Correctional Centre.....
Robbery is the most likely cause...
Typical turd world $h!thole.....
Know someone whose wife is Puerto Rican - he wanted to propose
to her on the beach at night with full moon
Her response was “Stupid white boy !, You go down there at
night and they (locals) will kill you!”
They don’t usually need a motive for killing two white guys in Jamaica, do they?
Isn’t one-worldism great? Multiculturalism is great. I am insane.
I’ll chalk it up to the same votive the enemedia would automatically use if two Jamaicans were murdered in a white area of the Deep South (and it wouldn’t be robbery).
Does Barry really care?
Jamaican gunmen do not suffer batty man fools gladly.....who knows
Killings of tourists are uncommon there
Robbery is not though
Lots of bullshit on this thread
How many here actually know the place
I know it like I know Mississippi or middle Tennessee where I live now
Anybody here a serious Jamaican traveler?
Let me think of a test question can’t be googled?
Two very famous women connected to even more famous men who both used to live at opposite ends of the island
The plantation where a quasi famous movie was filmed....a period piece...a prequel.....to a very famous 19th century novel
I almost bought the place in 1987
On the north coast hey there is a pork pit made of very unusual leftover technology of the 20Th century
An elevated military fort?
You can google that one.
1978 big event?
I love the place...dangerous....yeah
Tourist spot folks are a nuisance....yes
But it also can be so cool and beautiful
And the country peasants are very warm
The Jamaica Observer-
Jamaica had about 45 slayings per 100,000 people in 2015, keeping it ranked among the most violent countries in the world. In recent years, the UN listed the island as having the worlds sixth-worst homicide rate. The World Bank ranked Jamaica in the top five in 2013.
By comparison, Chicago, which has roughly the same population as Jamaica at 2.7 million, had 468 killings in 2015.
I go to Chicago too
The killings in Jamaica are like Chicago or Memphis
Mostly in the worst areas
Everything you wrote there does not erase the fact that Jamaica is very dangerous, violent, and unsafe, especially for white people.
The motive was “It’s Jamaica”.
It’s dangerous in places like north Houston or south Dallas would be
And it’s not just at whites
There are places in Jamaica been known as bad since independence in the early 60s
A big mistake btw
