"He always stop working around 5pm or so. He was seen all day yesterday (Friday) with a female friend of his (that) he was dating and it didn't seem as though he worked yesterday (Friday ) because my other siblings said they saw him around Arima with the same individual during the course of the day." "My brother is a humble and kind hearted person and always willing to help those in need. He was not known to the police and was not involved in drugs or criminal activities. I don't know why someone would want to take his life. They took him from us. He was such a joyful being ."

Another sister Sharon Nero said while fighting back tears recalled a time when she was getting her daughter's school supplies in the Arima borough and her brother called out to her. She said that she would never forget the smile on his face.

"I love my brother so much. He is with God now and will be surely missed. Those who have committed this gruesome act will have to answer soon."
