US Deports Jamaican National Wanted for Murder


NEW YORK – A former member of the Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF) who fled the country to the United States after fatally shooting popular entertainer, ‘Instaboss’, in St Mary last year, has been deported by the United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE).

ICE says Oshane Wayne, 24, “was removed from the United States …and transferred into the custody of Jamaican law enforcement authorities.”

Field Office director, Thomas R. Decker, said “we are targeting criminal aliens every day in New York City, many like Thompson who is wanted in his home country to face murder charges.

“It is important to recognize that ICE officers enforce immigration laws and remove criminal aliens from city streets in the interest of public safety, keeping our communities free of those who seek refuge from facing justice for their criminal acts,” he added.

ICE said that Jamaican law enforcement authorities reported that, on June 12, 2017, “Thompson got involved in an argument with an adult male, over a woman, pulled a firearm and shot the adult male, who succumbed to his injuries.”

It said one day later Thompson boarded a flight to the US, and legally entered with a non-immigrant visa, with authorization to remain in the United States until December 13, 2017.

But on June 19, 2017, ICE said the international police organization, INTERPOL, issued a “Red Notice” for Thompson and that a few days later, the US Department of State revoked Thompson’s visa.

Thompson was arrested on March 19, 2018 in Pennsauken, New Jersey, on immigration charges and on August 2, was “ordered removed by an immigration judge in New York City, and waived his right to appeal, thus paving the way for his removal to Jamaica.” – CMC
