The Montego Bay police say they are following strong leads into the killing of hospitality worker, Dean Moriah.
Moriah, who was named the 2010 Individual Winner of the Tourism Service Excellence Awards, was stabbed several times in his upper body and fingers, and reportedly died at the Cornwall Regional Hospital about 4:00 a.m.
His house was later set ablaze, however, Moriah did not receive any burns.
His car was stolen as well.
Moriah, served in the tourism industry for more than 20 years.
"It was his endearing personality that won him the top prize of the Jamaican tourism industry," said a profile written by the Tourism Product Development Company (TPDCo) in 2010.
Renowned as a philanthropist, Moriah, who worked at Margaritaville Caribbean up to the time of his death, organised an annual basketball camp for Jamaican youngsters and helped a medical group to provide health care for citizens throughout the country.
His killing has come as a shock and many of his friends have expressed disgust in the way he was murdered.
A visit to his Facebook page, shows that the last comment he made on Sunday, August 25, suggested he was about to enjoy a glass of Yellowtail Cabernet Sauvignon.
Moriah’s death makes two the number of murders in the second city in fewer than 12 hours.
At present, the police are downtown Montego Bay investigating a shooting which took place this afternoon.
