10 year old traumatised by Goodlands homicide

A 10 year old boy is traumatised as a result of Sunday’s stabbing death of his father, allegedly by the child’s mother.

Anne Marie Edmunds who is the stepmother of the deceased, Cletus Edward, told reporters that the traumatised child needs counselling.

“He was with us yesterday and when he came here and take some water he heard the mother screaming and when he went to the house he told me he met his mom lying down on his daddy in a pool of blood and the mother had a towel holding the stab – the mother was screaming,” Edmunds recalled.

“That child just stay there and seized- I had to take him and bring him here, up to now you will talk to him, he will just shake his head – he will never open his mouth and answer you,” she explained.

Edmunds said the 10 year old needs someone to talk to him.

She revealed that the couple’s oldest daughter is about to graduate and her deceased father had ordered a suit to attend the graduation.

“Maybe they will bury him in that suit,” Edmunds said tearfully.

She recalled that just last week she had requested that the police assist the couple because of their stormy relationship, but was told that the two were the ones who had to make a report.

“I told them ‘You all can’t do nothing, but when you all will come is when one of them die, ‘”Edmunds stated.

She said she reminded the law enforcers of what she had said when they arrived on the scene Sunday afternoon to investigate the homicide.

      Thats why the state has to intervene in them matters … even when the male or female withdraw ..the state can prosecute… But just Alvina … Isaac is doing the same and not passing legislation. … as ministers …they are more worried about Step and Nice… that’s even they know how to get consensus and pass legislation. …

      That’s their job, to maintain the peace. It doesn’t matter if the couple decides to get back together, that’s not their concern.

      My lady, Satan had nothing to do with this.

      Satan is innocent why do you keep blaming him.

        Excuse your ignorance”King” satan is the prince of this world. The bible says satan comes to steal, to kill and to destroy so every evil that is happening is because of satan. So He Is To Blame!!!.
        ◄ 2 Chronicles 7:14 ►
        If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
        Until we don’t surrender to God we will not be saved.
        So I suggest you repent of the statement you just made and accept Christ as Lord and Savior before satan comes knocking at your door(God Forbid)
        My condolences to the family of the young man may he R.I.P

      You need to understand it has nothing to do with religion.
      For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
      People do evil because their hearts are far from God and if they have no relationship with God they give way to satan and satan will cause them to commit murder and other forms of evil.If you have a relationship with God then the love of God is in you so satan cannot use you to commit such evil.

    An incident of this nature would traumatize an adult, let alone a child. This is indeed sad. I sincerely hope that those in the position to reach out to support those children have already done so. These children have realistically lost both parents and need the support of the whole community at large to grow up as stable individuals. This is a plea for help to be rendered to them at the soonest because children do go through the grieving process and support in that regard.
