Complaint Over Stolen Goats Blamed For Bexon Double Murder

A Marc, Bexon woman says a request by her son for a man to return some goats he had stolen, led to a double murder in the community Sunday night.

Jania Soolal told St Lucia Times that her son, Mosiah Soolal, had bought three goats.

Soolal said an individual whom she identified by name, stole the animals whereupon the man who was accused of stealing them was asked to return them.

She said she even went to the man’s father in an effort to get the goats returned.

According to Soolal, when it seemed to her that the request had created a problem, she decided to let the matter rest.

She told St Lucia Times that she also advised her son to leave the matter alone.

“God will give you more (goats),” she recalled telling the 37 year old deceased who assured her that he would not pursue the issue.

Soolal said that sometime after, the accused came to their place, fired three gunshots and issued death threats.

She told St Lucia Times that the matter was reported to the police who on more than one occasion visited the area and even went to the home of the accused but did not encounter him.

The Bexon woman recalled that Sunday night, the accused came to their home and opened fire at her son and the son’s friend.

Soolal said both were rushed to hospital where her son died.

She recounted that while she was at the hospital she received word from her granddaughter that her husband, whom police identified as Joseph Nicholas, 78, had been shot dead by the accused goat thief.

Another relative of the two deceased told reporters that while members of the family were at the hospital they received word that individuals had surrounded the family house in Bexon.

“We were all at the hospital waiting to see what was going to happen and my aunt called – she called my mom and said :’We’re in the house, they’re in the house alone and the man and people are surrounding the house because they can hear voices all over , “ the relative recalled.

She said the people in the house at the time were scared.

“It reached the point where they had to be hiding in closets and the little child on the bed was all alone, because if they woke him up he would have started screaming – so they had to leave him there alone,” the relative, who requested anonymity, told reporters.

“I tried calling the police – trying to inform the police that the people are in the house, the people are scared. They keep telling me they are attending, they are attending. I am not saying they did not attend, but in my opinion if they attended sooner then that would not have happened,” she lamented.

Consulting her mobile telephone, she said she called six times beginning at 12.33 am, with the last call made to the police at 1.00 am.

The woman said she was not sure exactly when the police eventually showed up, as she was not on the scene in Bexon at the time.

But she observed that the law enforcement officials showed up after the second shooting.
