Cousin: Homicide victim was trying to change

Cousin: Homicide victim was trying to change

A cousin of Saint Lucia’s  latest homicide victim has said that the deceased was killed as he was about to change his life.

Davidson Egarnes, 20, died at St Jude Hospital about one hour after being stabbed in the chest on the Micoud Playing Field Monday night.

Egarnes was allegedly stabbed by a seventeen year old  at around 10. pm.

Law enforcement sources told the Times that the alleged assailant later turned himself in to the police.

“As my cousin trying to change his life they just take his life away. He tried so hard to change,” a weeping cousin of Egarnes said.

She said although she and the deceased always argued, their love for each other was strong.

“I lost my grandmother last year and this year I am losing my favourite cousin,” she lamented.

She said although the deceased had his ‘ways’ he did not deserve ‘that’.

 

A woman who said she was like a second mother to Egarnes, recalled that during Carnival celebrations last year he was stabbed multiple times by the same youngster who is the suspect in the homicide.

She said the suspect had also stabbed her biological son.

The woman recalled that her daughter called her on Monday night to tell her that Davidson Egarnes had been stabbed.

She insisted that the latest homicide was not gang-related.

According to her the suspect in the homicide stole items belonging to the deceased, resulting in a confrontation last year.

    Yeah Yeah Yeah always trying to change their lives and killed in the process. Or he was a good boy but troublesome or its all because of the friends they keep. They never deserve it but whomever they did wrong before deserved it? Karma is always watching and let them know she’s always around and will be coming

    Pls little girl, you know very well your cousin was stabbed last year when him and his friends assaulted this guy. He armed himself after that because he was scared for his life with all the threats he was getting. Your cousin and his friends almost killed a young boy whom they thought was related to him after that incident. And last night he defended himself when your cousin tried to stab him again, there were witnesses present. Don’t come to cry now that he is gone. The other guy was no saint either but they kept provoking him. A person has the right to defend themselves and they will do so if they are scared

    everything for lucians is negative negative negative. Where is the love.what about peace what about feeling sorry for each other.what about being a big brother..or a big Sistet to someone .what about mentoring. Someones heart must be bleeding. Someones heart must be crying right now.Someones heart must be in pain right now.do you all think that is of God.do you think God will say that..instead of all that negativity lets get our selves ready for the coming of the lord..we all have family.we have children, grand children,Stop all this negativity. did we forget about the land the light and the people.

    Parents when you discipline your child it shows you love them. Don’t let them have their way. Correct them – in love; give them some lashes on the palm of their hand or somewhere that will not injure them – but wait till you are not angry again to beat them. Explain calmly why you are punishing them. You could use other methods too such as banning them from having or doing things they like.They are intelligent they will understand. Do not beat them in anger, it will make them violent. AND THE BIGGEST ONE IS PRAY WITH THEM AND TAKE THEM – NOT SEND THEM – TO CHURCH. TEACH THEM THE LOVE OF GOD. LET GOD TRANSFORM US. AND STRIVE TO BE A GOOD EXAMPLE TO THEM. SUPPORT THEIR SCHOOL AND THOSE WHO HAVE BEEN PLACED IN AUTHORITY OVER THEM. GOD HELP US!!

    Omg lord have mercy.. He wasn’t a saint but cum to think of it none of us are. Cousin u need to shut up about him changing his life. Why are some people rejoicing? This is not nice. Guys we really need to find a way to come together, to get our kids in the right path. Some of us parents we sit back and think we’ve done enough for our kids, so let them go astray, let the police deal with them. Guys wake up. Our kids are dying out there and we’re here saying good ridance. Praying for our lucia for unity. Leave chastenet out of it.

He may try to change but the ppl he hurt never forget and is always out for revenge

    Bear with me please
    I don’t think we understand or realize the power of words spoken; about anything. If we would examine our lives by the word of God , who would be without fault. The word of God reveal everything about this life and that which is to come, and it is there that we understand why these things happen. We have forgotten that nothing happens without the permission of God;nothing. There is no space here to point fingers at this family or that family; the bible says that the heart of man is desperately wicked; who can know it. The bible also says that we should not rejoice over evil, neither should we laugh at our enemies when they fall.
    We have also forgotten that there is an enemy of there called Satan, seeking all kinds of ways to destroy the things of God; and when we don’t raise children according to the word of God, we make them his prey and expose them to all the evils of this world.
    I hate to see young people die like that, doesn’t matter who they were; I believe that God can change anyone. From drugs , from gangs, from immorality, from whatever.
    We fail to realize that man cannot change man, it doesnt matter how many counselling class or advice given, it all comes back to the word of God.
    This is the very reason Jesus gave his life on the cross, to deliver from every problem and sin itself. Its only when someone is gone you think to yourself, [I wish I could hug then one more time, or just tell them you love them].
    I hate to see that whole gang thing, I know personally that it is nothing; one day yo talking and making all that noise,and tomorrow you could be fighting for your life in the hospital.
    There’s no such thing as karma, that is the language of the world; If God purpose to keep you on this earth he will; and what God allows he allows.
    When will we stop using these quotes and fables and phrases of old…? We all have feeling to express; both the family of the deceased and the family of the suspect, but what doth it profit to come on here to curse and swear, and to point fingers..? And to think that most of you are parents with children too…
    I too am a young man just like the victim, and I pray that God will deliver young people from this wicked evil spirit, and that they will see that all this bad boy thing is putting each other at risk.
    Many children are raised without love,or abused, or neglected, or parentless, and all these things contribute to the behaviour of children later in life.
    To know that you’ll never see that person again…..smhh…
    I spoke the truth….

    St.lucians need to stop working evil, reading evil books and working on people. . That has been passed on by the same older generation. That’s why the suicides,killings, raping and all that goes on….stop reading Delaurence!!!!…when you do these things you are invoking bad demonic spirits. …after they work for you they possess your son’s and they start doing all sorts of evil things…some go mad…..I don’t feel sorry for none of them cause they like to do to much dirty Ness! !!!

    Well it is because he was ‘trying’ to change he died. The Devil doesn’t want bad boys to change. Changing is costly. So he will have you killed instead of allowing to yield to the voice of wisdom. The only protection is not to ever become a bad boy in the first place

    It is really shameful that some of us will not let go of our philistine attitudes. For heaven’s sake if you have nothing positive to contribute why comment at all? In this predominantly Christian society it is rather surprising that we only remember the bible verse “For all hath sinned and fall short of the Glory….” Quit judging each other and for once become each other’s keepers. It is as if St Lucia has entered one of its darkest times, and its sons and daughters have become irresponsible, uncaring and unwilling to condone violence and the lawlessness that comes with it. Do we solve our problems by condemning each other or do we live by example? Hatred does not oust hatred by an means. The time we spend denigrating each other might be better spent reaching out to each other. Let peace exist among us and let us try to find some semblance of calm amid this bloodshed. let us reach out to those who weep and mourn their children and the hands of senseless violence and those who face the prisons and loss of their freedom due to their inability to control their anger, or we all will suffer the consequences of this madness called revenge. St Lucians Wake up!

    The family who pray together stays toghter. Pray pray Pray that should be our motto in st. Lucia. Let us parents teach our children the right thing at an early age. Some of us refuse to show love to our kids. We believe that showing love is by allowing them to do and get away with anything. If we truely love them we will correct them at all times. Sometimes we dont play our parts at home, send them to school and expect the school to instill in them what we should have done at home. Most times the school system as much as they try just cannot help those children. Parents we are not raising our children for ourselves but for society. They have to go out there and mingle with others. It has to be a NO MORE SPARE THE ROD AND SPOIL THE CHILDc. May the families of both the suspect and the victim find it in their hearts to forgive each other and may we practise love to each other at all times. Lets remember the commandment “Love your neighbour as yourselve”. If we can practise thias along with constant prayer for strengh then we can become a better st. Lucia. Lets encourage our young people to join positive community groups, church groups instead of idling on tthe blocks drinking and smoking.
    Let the change starts today with each one of us and let us work and pray for a clean and better st. Lucia.
