Several hours before dawn on Saturday, dancehall vet Captain Barkey (born Joslyn Hamilton) and his lover Tracy Bennett were shot to death in the parking lot of the Holiday Motel in the Bronx.
The alleged murderer, according to New York City police: Joseph Kernizan, a Haitian music promoter and Bennett's ex.
Pursued from NYC to South Florida by the U.S. Marshals, the 42-year-old suspect was eventually trapped inside a two-story apartment building, located near the corner of NW 157th Street and Second Avenue in North Miami.
The cops worried that Kernizan was about to skip the country and head for Haiti. But instead, he chose to kill himself.
