Assistant Superintendent of Police Alejandro Cowo:
“Last night we managed to get a family member. The person was identified as Lynton Wilshire of a Neal’s Penn Road extension address. So far the police went to his house and they observed some irregularities at his house so we are looking at that angle if there is a possibility that he was taken out of his house either Monday night or Tuesday morning. ”
Is this individual know to the police?
Assistant Superintendent of Police Alejandro Cowo
“Yes they are known to the police since the last sighting of him was on Monday night.”
Now it is rumored that Linton was in an altercation over the weekend with the deceased young man Mr. Ryan is it believed that these two may have been in an altercation with somebody and this being the consequence of the altercation from over the weekend?
