|Clive McCullock, the 55-year-old acting executive director of Jamaica’s Betting, Gaming and Lotteries Commission (BGLC) was found dead last Thursday night in Kingston, Jamaica. Police suspect his death was suicide. He had been made executive director less than two weeks before his death.|
McCullock’s body was found slumped in the driver's seat of his car, with a bullet wound to the right side of the head. He was clutching his gun in his right hand.
Beside the body were four suicide notes, expressing apologies to his family for his apparent suicide. He also reportedly said allegations made against him by a family member were lies.
'Based on our information, we are looking at financial or family problems he might have been experiencing,' said a police spokesperson.
Administrative director of BGLC, Tanya Anderson-Rose, said the death of Mr. McCullock has cast 'a pall of gloom over the Commission.'
'We were very depressed when we heard the news this morning. We were shocked,' said Mrs. Rose.
Mrs. Rose was the last person from the office who saw him alive.
'We both attended a board meeting Wednesday evening. After the meeting, we went to our respective homes. The following day (Thursday) he left his home for a long period and could not be found. Later on in the evening we got news that his body was found in his car,' said Mrs. Rose.
