A teacher was killed and her body left on the side of the road near her house in David Lane, Port Antonio, Portland early Tuesday morning.
She has been identified as 29 year old Latoya Hill, otherwise called Trish.
Ms Hill taught at Sebian Preparatory school in Portland.
Her partner, Rohan Martin, of a Guy's Hill, St Catherine address, is being sought by the police.
Ms Hill's body, which had a wound to the head, was found by residents. A transparent bag was over the head.
A resident, who requested anonymity, said neighbours heard strange sounds coming from the house shortly after midnight and later discovered the body.
He said Ms Hill and her partner had been living in the community for a few months and were not well known by their neighbours.
