The family of a teenager whose body police found at his home at Bois Catchet, Castries, has vowed to do all they can to help police solve the case.
Police have classified the death of 16 year old Hasani Joseph as ‘suspicious’.
“Now we know he was murdered, so that’s a different ball game altogether,” his sister with whom he lived said.
” I will work with the police as best as I can to find the people who did this to him,” she declared.
Officers found Hasani Joseph with a piece of rope around his neck on Friday, March 5
According to the police, he was on his back inside his home in the doorway leading to his bedroom.
The teenager’s sister says Hasani was a ‘wonderful soul’.
She disclosed that the teenager, who attended Sir Ira Simmons Secondary School, was quiet and intelligent.
The sister recalled discovering him dead at her home, describing his passing as traumatic for her and the family.
She explained that she made the discovery when she returned from work about 5.45 pm.
“I remember one of the doors was not closing properly so I passed through the door and I found him in the state that he was,” she said.
However, she said she would not go into details.
The sister, who preferred not to be identified by name, said she was leaving everything up to God and the police.
And she expressed the hope that the police would catch the perpetrators.
