The stepfather of a young woman who was shot dead at Pigeon Island Sunday night hopes that her killer will surrender himself.
“I hope the perpetrator turns himself in if he know what’s good for him, or whoever,” Nicholas Clarke told St Lucia Times.
Anela Wilson of Marchand, Castries, was shot multiple times in the head, according to reports.
She died on the spot.
Hubert Kerry John of Maynard Hill, Castries, who was reported to be with her at the time sustained gunshot wounds to the back when a gunman attacked them.
John is said to be in stable condition in hospital.
A relative of the deceased who was also present at the time escaped unhurt.
The stepfather of the deceased recalled that Wilson told him Sunday night she was going to have some recreation at Pigeon Point.
He recalled about 11.00 pm someone telephoned him to say that she had been murdered.
“I rushed up there and saw my daughter on the ground,” Clarke told St Lucia Times.
He described the deceased female who was in her twenties, as having been a very jovial individual.
Clarke said she was ‘the people’s choice’.
He said the death has left the family in tears.
“When I look at my house, it’s as if I can put buckets to collect the water – everybody is in tears, auntie, nenen, brother, sister, name it – it’s tears,” the stepfather lamented.
Clarke said he was not aware of a reason why anyone would have wanted the 22 year old dead.
