Dancehall artist Adidja “Vybz Kartel” Palmer allegedly cooperated with police in hopes of getting a lighter sentence for the murder of Clive “Lizard” Williams. Now, Allhiphop.com is reporting that according to the Jamaica Observer, police sources confirm that Kartel helped authorities capture several wanted individuals and recover 17 illegal firearms.
Kartel allegedly approached the police about cooperating with the investigation into the death of Williams when it was clear he would be going down for the murder.
A Jamaica Observer source says,
“He wanted to meet with the commissioner who assigned a member of the high command to meet him. During the meeting he offered information on wanted men in Portmore and also coughed up a number of illegal firearms. He was trying to broker a deal to get the charges dropped.”
Police are also investigating the disappearance of funeral director Jennifer Edwards who went missing back in January. Police say they have evidence that shows Edwards was killed to cover-up what happened to Williams’ body.
“We believe she was killed because she was the weak link and she knew too much, but we are still investigating.”
Kartel and a funeral director also allegedly met with a police officer to discuss whether Williams was cremated.
Kartel was convicted of Williams’ murder in March and sentenced to 35 years in prison. André St John, “Shawn Storm” Campbell, and Kahira Jones were all convicted as well. All four have appealed their convictions.
