The Press Union of Liberia is shocked over the vicious killing of Journalist Tyron Brown in a suburb of Monrovia.
Tyron was found dead early Monday on the Duport Road. According to family sources, he had served his church on the previous Sunday when he provided technical assistance up to his gruesome murder by unknown individuals.
Tyron’s remains is now deposited at the Abraham Anderson Funeral Parlors, while awaiting Police forensic examination.
Meanwhile, the PUL is calling for a speedy Police investigation which will include an autopsy to determine the cause of death.
According to a PUL statement, the killing of Tyron has increased the level of fear in the Journalism Community in Liberia and has further strengthened the case for self-censorship in the traditional journalism sphere in Liberia.
Until his murder, Journalist Tyron Brown worked as a reporter, Camera operator and video editor at Super FM & TV, owned by Businessman George Kailando.
Journalist Tyron Brown’s unfortunate death comes in the wake of the escalation of threats and intimidation of journalists and the independent media by some officials of government.
