Reports are that on the weekend , INDECOM personnel arranged for 21 year old Fahdean Ferguson, who was an Independent Commission of Investigations (INDECOM) witness in the high level probe in the death of Mario Deane, to attend an identification parade for three cops who were reportedly on duty at the Barnett Street lock-up on August 3 - the day on which Deane was beaten.
Ferguson, reportedly pointed out the police officers.
Following the exercise, arrangements were being made to take Ferguson back to the Barnett Street Lock-Up when he escaped through a window.
The Police High Command has ordered a probe into the circumstances surrounding Ferguson's escape. INDECOM officials are also concerned about his safety.
A statement from the police on Sunday said Ferguson, who is also known as Tussain and Joshua,is a mechanic of Hampton in Spring Mount, St. James. He is of dark complexion, medium build and about 5 feet 8 inches tall.
He has tear drops tattooed below his right eye and scars over both eyes. He was being held on charges of house breaking and burglary. At the time of his escape he was wearing a white merino and pink shorts.
In the meantime, The Independent Commission of Investigations (INDECOM) has completed it's probe into the death of 31 year old construction worker Mario Deane.
The Commission will now determine whether charges should be laid against three members of the police force who were on duty when Deane was severely beaten by other prisoners in the Barnett Street lock-up last month.
The female Corporal who has been at the centre of the investigation, was yesterday pointed out in an identification parade by a relative who accused her of denying Mr Deane bail, hours before he was attacked.
The Corporal and two of her colleagues were also pointed out in an ID parade on Saturday.
INDECOM is to determine whether the cops should be charged following allegations of misconduct.
Deane's family has hired a team of attorneys to sue the State.
