A woman who told reporters that she was the first to enter the home where the body of murdered football coach Cassius Glasgow was found, disclosed Monday night that the house had been searched.
“I was the first to enter the place. When I enter I see him naked with blood coming from his head. I don’t know if it was a bullet wound. When I went to the room, they searched the room; they searched the cupboards. There was only one room that was closed in the house but all the others they opened and searched,” the woman, identified as ‘Shorty’ told television reporters.
“Cassius was friendly to my daughter – he was like a son,” she stated.
The nude body of Cassius Glasgow, 47, was found slumped on the living room floor about 8.00 am Monday morning.
Blood that had oozed from his head formed a small puddle on the floor beside him.
No possible motive has been given for the country’s first homicide for the year.
A post mortem examination on Monday determined that Glasgow died from ‘traumatic brain injury secondary to a gunshot wound to the head.’
The death of Glasgow, known affectionately as ‘Cassie-boom’ came as a shock to those who knew him.
Television footage showed tearful individuals at the scene of the crime, wailing loudly.
They were flabbergasted by the murder and questioned what motive anyone would have for killing a man who spent his time coaching young people of Marchand.
“Cassie-boom was a nice person – real loving, giving person. Cassie-boom would take children from all walks of life. He would take them, train them, tell them ‘stay off the streets – stay away from violence’, even my grandson he trained. Cassie-boom was just a loving, giving person – a helpful person; down to earth,” one tearful woman recalled.
