Who killed Sweetbread?

Shanilee Khan whose common-law husband Ryan Alexander was found dead in a car in La Brea on Thursday night.


Father of two, Ryan “Sweetbread” Alexander, 27, left his home at La Brea on Thursday night to “go and catch crabs.” But a few hours later, early yesterday, his common-law wife Shanilee Khan, 31, received the devastating news that police found his body in a car with gunshot wounds to the head.

Reports state that South Western Division police received information at about 12.30 am yesterday and went to Union Village, La Brea, where they saw a B15 car parked at the roadside near Labidco Estate.

Slumped in the front passenger’s seat was Alexander with gunshot wounds.

Alexander lived at Union Road, La Brea, with Khan and their two children ages three and two-years-old. He had multiple nicknames among them “Mac Mac,” “Salty” and “Kay Kay.”

With tears yesterday, Khan recalled that shortly before 10 pm on Thursday, he told her he was going to “catch crabs” at Sobo Village in La Brea with his god-mother.

But at about 3 am yesterday, police visited her home and delivered the news of his death.

“He put on his clothes, packed food in his bag and said he was going to hold crabs. I believed that,” Khan said. “I did not watch to see where he was going.

“Ryan never catch crabs before, it was his first time. But now it seems like he never made it. He hustled for a living and took care of us.”

Khan said Alexander did not own a vehicle although he knew how to drive.

“I did not go on the scene so I don’t know whose car it is or what he was doing there,” Khan said. “I am not fighting anything because someone might get hurt and I don’t want that. “I don’t know who killed him but God will give justice.”
