Soldier Charged After Body Found In His Car

Theophilus Tracey who had been offered a 300,000-bail last month was granted a $ 600,000 bail by the Kingston and St. Andrew Parish Court earlier today following his attorney, Peter Champagnie’s QC application. The 41-year-old soldier was arrested earlier this year when the body of Oshine Lawrence, 31, was found in his car at approximately 4 am on February 26, 2022, on Caledonia Avenue in Cross Roads, St Andrew.

The police requested that Tracey turn in his licensed firearm, but he failed to do so and stated in an interview conducted by police that he had been attacked and was the victim of a robbery carried out by the deceased woman and four men.


Tracey also says that it was during the alleged robbery that he lost his weapon after discharging it, attempting to defend himself against the attackers but was overpowered by one of the men who then took it from him, and he was left with no other option than to flee the scene.

Following investigations into the murder of Lawrence, Tracey was charged for failing to turn in his gun to police and then later for the shooting and death of Lawrence.
