The sister of deceased taxi driver, Nereus Francis, alias ‘Cosol’, has demanded justice in the aftermath of his death Monday night.
Law enforcement officials have described it as a suspicious death.
According to the police, about 10:40 pm, the body of Francis was discovered beneath his Toyota Land Cruiser Prado registration number TX 825 at La Feuillet, Gros Islet, and appeared to be lifeless.
A police statement said medical assistance was sought and he was pronounced dead at the Victoria Hospital by a medical practitioner.
Frances Rock, the sister of the deceased, believes her brother was killed by persons unknown.
There have been reports that spent shells were discovered near his vehicle, leading to speculation that unidentified persons may have opened fire at him, resulting in the deceased losing control of his vehicle as he took evasive action.
It was not clear whether Francis was hit.
His sister said she knows of no reason why anyone would want to harm her brother whom she described as someone who was willing to help others.
“My brother is such a guy where anybody ask him something, he will give,” she explained.
Questioned by reporters, she revealed that the deceased would visit the casino in the North of the Island.
“I don’t know, maybe they think he win a money and he have a money on him,” Rock suggested.
“They kill my brother,” she lamented.
“If you all want money from him, whatever it is you all want, don’t kill him. I need justice. I need to know who kill my brother. But God is a mighty God, and I know before this month end I will know who kill my brother,” Rock declared.
She said the deceased turned 51 in May this year.
“My brother is not in any old things – nothing. The man have his tours, giving everybody a daily bread. If is money you all want from him ask him, because he always giving,” Rock said.
