A popular Jamaican disc jockey shot with reggae star Peter Tosh in a holdup at the singer's home died Monday, bringing the death toll from the robbery to three, hospital sources in Kingston said. Jeff Dixon, 42, also known as Free-I Tafari, died at University Hospital, where he had been on a life-support machine with two bullets in his head since Friday night, the sources said. Also killed in the holdup were Tosh, 42, and Wilton (Doc) Brown, a maker of health potions from plants. Both died on the way to the hospital shortly after three men forced their way into Tosh's home and demanded money. No arrests have been made in the killings.
