A flamboyant dance hall promoter and convicted drug dealer from Sudbury who moved to Jamaica to start a new life has been shot dead.

Owen Roger Clarke, also known as ‘Father Fowl’, died in a hail of bullets delivered by men riding on motorcycles at a party in Kencot, St Andrew, on February 23, Jamaican news lines report.

It is said that he was shot multiple times by men who rode up on a bike. He then collapsed in front of his Red Range Rover car and died.

The 62-year-old was living in Rugby Avenue in 2004 when he was jailed for 13 years, reduced to 11 on appeal, after admitting producing, supplying and possessing crack cocaine.
