The relatives of the Agard homicide victims have asserted that both deceased were in the wrong place at the wrong time.
Barry Leonce, 31, and Miguel Charlery, 25, were gunned down by unidentified gunmen Monday afternoon in Agard.
Leonce’s sister told St Lucia Times in an interview that she believes her sibling was in the wrong place at the wrong time.
And Miguel Charlery’s aunt echoed similar sentiments in relation to her deceased nephew.
The distraught aunt said Charlery had gone to look for his motorcycle at a garage in Carilee.
She explained that the deceased, whose mother is currently in Canada, was a loving boy.
However she observed that some people would say that once someone dies, everyone asserts that the person was good.
“But Miguel was a loving child. Miguel was a father to grownups, Miguel was a father to little children – he was a good child. Miguel was not getting himself in trouble or anything,” she declared, while fighting back tears.
The aunt said the deceased worked with her brother’s tyre service.
The aunt’s husband lamented that although the shooting happened in broad daylight, information regarding what transpired is not forthcoming.
He expressed the view that people do not want to talk.
“People are frightened to talk – they probably don’t want to expose themselves in any way,’ he told reporters.
The police have appealed to persons with information about the double homicide to come forward.
Two other persons were injured in Monday’s incident and are in hospital.
