DOB Unknown – May 26, 2010
Oneil Edwards was one-third of the popular Jamaican dancehall group, Voicemail. Brought together at a local talent show in 1999, the group initially included five members, but eventually morphed into a trio which included Edwards, Craig Jackson and Kevin Blaire. Voicemail began making records around 2003, eventually releasing their debut album, Hey on VP Records. The group quickly built a loyal following thanks in part to their upbeat and catchy dance tunes. On May 10, 2010, Oneil Edwards entered his home to find gunmen who shot him and fled. One suspect was later found dead of a gunshot wound, while a second suspect was apprehended by police. Edwards was taken to a local hospital where, on May 26, he passed away from his wounds.
