A BLOOD-STAINED car believed to have been used to transport the head of murdered ex-prisoner Learie Ceballo, was found yesterday.
Police discovered the vehicle at Renn Avenue, La Romaine, several kilometres from where Ceballo's headless body was found in a canefield in Debe on Thursday morning.
Ceballo's severed head was found on a table outside a bar at Rambert Village shortly after daybreak Thursday.
Supt of Police of the Homicide Division (South), Cyril Harry, said police have not yet uncovered a motive for the killing which has shocked the country.
A forensic examination was expected to be done on the body yesterday but the findings were not immediately available.
Ceballo's relatives declined to speak about the killing when the Express yesterday visited an apartment where Ceballo last lived at La Romaine.
A relative there said she did not wish to speak to the media.
And a man who also emerged from the apartment said the woman was "very traumatised".
Police said forensic experts planned to search the vehicle for fingerprints and other clues.
The Step Bar, at Dumfries Road, where the head was found, remained closed yesterday.
The discovery has also left residents of the area traumatised.
A resident of the area, who did not give his identity, told the Express yesterday: "Everyone is locking their doors and staying inside after 5 p.m. We are not coming outside at all."
On the discovery of Ceballo's head, the man said: "I was putting garbage by the roadside that morning when I saw something on top of the table. I thought it was a black bag and I didn't think much about it.
"Then my neighbour called and said it was someone's head. I knew him (the deceased) from the area, but he didn't really cause trouble here. He was in jail for some time, so this is very strange that whoever did that put his head there."
Ceballo was last seen at the bar drinking and liming last Saturday. He had been released from prison the day before.
