Sources informed Loop News that Norman Tomlinson — the 61-year-old husband of Abrahams’ helper — said the relationship involved both men touching and kissing each other.
Tomlinson, Loop News was informed, said he got involved with the 97-year-old wheelchair-bound Abrahams for the money.
Tomlinson said his wife didn’t know about the relationship with Abrahams — and that he didn’t go to Abrahams’ Red Hills, St Andrew, home during the hours his wife worked there.
Abrahams was found dead at home January 18. Tomlinson — a resident of Cyprus district, in Red Hills — was subsequently arrested and charged.
Large sums of cash had been withdrawn from Abrahams’ bank account leading up to Abrahams’ death.
In relation to the cash, Loop News has been informed that Tomlinson told police that Abrahams’ gave him his debit card and that he took $1M from the account to purchase a power saw and other items.
Loop News was further informed that Tomlinson said he and Abrahams, who was also a novelist, got into an argument over the amount taken from the account.
He said he was holding Abrahams’ wheelchair when he fell out of it. He said he tried helping up Abrahams, who fell again because he was too heavy for him to manage.
According to the source, Tomlinson said nothing about killing Abrahams.
Tomlinson appeared in the Kingston and St Andrew Parish Court March 15 and his case was set for a later date.
