A machete used by a man who butchered his girlfriend to death was left with the haunting message ‘This is what cheaters get’ scrawled along the length of the blade.
It was found alongside the mutilated body of Nellie Brown-Cox, 42, after she was killed by Prince Hepburn, 50, in the Bahamas. Another chilling message was scrawled onto the other side of the blade that read ‘Your Next George Sawyer’. Hepburn, believed to be Miss Brown-Cox’s boyfriend, was found at the scene with slash wounds to his wrists and was arrested on suspicion of murder.
He is now believed to have admitted to the slaying of the secretary in the Bougainvillea Boulevard area of the Bahamas. The grisly scene was found by police when they attended reports of a stabbing at an apartment in the area.
A report filed by detectives in the Bahamas read: ‘As a result a team of homicide investigators and crime scene investigators were dispatched to the scene. Upon their arrival on the scene officers observed the deceased was lying face up on the kitchen floor near the door with her head in a western direction and her feet in an eastern direction with a cutlass under her right foot. Police claim the self-employed contractor had admitted to killing the deceased and had attempted to take his own life by cutting his wrist and taking some pills.
He remains in police custody, after hospital treatment, on suspicion of the murder.
