POLICE have a 21-year-old woman in custody in connection with the "suspicious death" of Ariel Lowe, who was discovered by firefighters with a "black cord" tied around her neck in her home on Carmichael Road on Monday morning.
Officer in charge of the Central Detective Unit Chief Superintendent Paul Rolle told The Tribune that police took a young woman into custody yesterday. However Mr Rolle would not say if the death has now been classified as a homicide.
A video showing Ms Lowe, a recent graduate of St Andrew's School, being abused by a woman, allegedly her lover, went viral on social media yesterday. In the video a woman, whose face was not seen, videotaped herself slapping and hitting Ms Lowe in the face and back.
Mr Rolle would not comment on whether the woman in the video is the same woman in police custody.
