Murder victim Curtis Christopher was on his way to buy bread Thursday morning in Morne du Don when he was gunned down, his mother Annette Christopher says.
“He left to buy bread early this morning about after six. Usually he goes to buy bread so that his brother would have breakfast before he goes to work,” the mother told St Lucia Times.
She explained that everyone knew the routine of the deceased.
“Everybody knows that he goes to buy bread after six,” she stated.
“He passed in the short cut and maybe there he was ambushed,” the mother told St Lucia Times.
She said the rest of the family were at home when they heard about five gunshots.
“My daughter said: ‘It’s Curtis’ , because we know he was shot already,” Annette Christopher said.
She said the family’s worst fears were confirmed.
The mother told St Lucia Times she was not aware that he had problems with anyone.
“Not that I know of,” she said.
According to the mother, all the neighbours have been saying that they were not aware that he was in trouble with anybody.
The deceased worked at a restaurant in Castries.
He would have been 35 years old in September.
