It’s been a year since David Constantine Brooks aka MAVADO left Jamaica for the United States where he is a legal permanent resident to avoid questioning in regards to his son’s murder trial. Now he might be back in the island as he posted a new photo of himself on Instagram which appears to be taken at his mansion in St. Andrew.
Mavado was shot at in Cassava Piece, the community where he grew up, in June last year. He reportedly intervened in a dispute between a man and his son. The man fled the scene and came back firing shots at Mavado who ran to the Constant Spring police station.
A few days later, 23-year-old Andre Hinds was killed at his home in Cassava Piece and his body set on fire. Law enforcement officials say they have text message evidence that Mavado’s son ordered the murder of Hinds. The 16-year-old was arrested and charged with murder, gun possession, possession of ammunition, and arson. The singer received criticism from some fans for leaving the island while his son is behind bars facing possible life in prison.
In January, a judge ruled that the teenager must stand trial as an adult. He is currently being held at a detention center in Kingston without bail.
