Family members and friends are calling for a full investigation in the death of Shanon Evans despite claims by several persons that he drowned in Negril on Easter Monday.
Evans, 25, who is also known as Shawn, went for a swim shortly after 3 p.m. on Monday near the Negril Beach Park. He reportedly died just a few metres from shore.
According to a youngster, who is a close friend of Evans, a number of men on jet skis had been circling the area where he went down.
A large laceration across Evans' forehead and another to the side of his head further convinced his friends that he was hit by one of the jet skis and died as a result of the impact.
"He did not drown," remarked a teenage boy who was also at the beach. "His belly would be puff and no water never come out of him."
He also said that Evans was bleeding through his nose and ears which he says are not common when someone drowns.
"The black sea bike pass and hit him then the other one them did a circle round him and then they ride off," the youngster said.
Evan's common-law-wife, Valrie Smith, recalled the last moments she spent with him. "He said he was going to the beach but he was not swimming and he kiss me and say him soon come."
"I have to get to the bottom of this because this is wickedness," she said.
The question is now being raised about the use of jet skis in swimming areas especially during the public holidays when the beaches are normally crowded.
The Negril police have not made any arrests, however, investigations are being carried out.
