“Judgement Day is coming,” the mother of Saint Lucia’s latest murder victim has warned his killers.
“The people who are out there doing those things I want to tell them that they need to stop it because life is important and families are important, so stop doing those things. Tell them judgement day is coming – God is not sleeping. He is alive and everybody who does those things, one day their time will come,”June Hutchinson Henry told St Lucia Times.
Henry recalled that someone came to her home Sunday morning about 6 O’ clock to inform her that her son, D’Andre Phillip, was dead.
“The person offered to give me a ride to the scene and when I arrived I saw him in the grass right there,” the mother told St Lucia Times.
“I saw him with his head down in the grass and his backside up in the air – that’s the position I saw him.”
Henry said she did not know at what time her son was shot.
She disclosed that she last saw the deceased Saturday night about 7.30 pm.
“He was at the house and he came and asked me for two dollars and then he left – he didn’t say where he was going,” Henry stated.
She described the deceased as having been a ‘cool’ individual whom she did not know to be in any trouble with anyone.
Henry said her son had never been arrested by the police.
“I won’t say I know everything he was doing,because when he is out there I don’t know what he is doing, but he is my son. I know him to be a good child,” the mother explained.
She said she had always heard that the Cedars area, where her son’s body was found, was a dangerous place.
Henry said when she saw the body at the hospital morgue she saw at least two bullet wounds in the chest.
“I asked the police officer how many more; he said he did not know until they do the post mortem,” she told St Lucia Times.
Police said Phillip’s body was discovered Sunday morning.
There have been reports that gunshots were heard in the area hours before the body is reported to have been discovered.
