The wife of 27-year-old Leon Dundas claimed that she received a call from her husband some time after midnight on Thursday. The woman said her husband did not disclose where he was, but only told them that he was ‘alright’.
But, at the time, he was hiding from the police and was about an hour from death in a shoot out. He had been with a gang that heisted the $17.2 million GuySuCo payroll and was trying to escape capture.
“Meh son-in-law call and we tell he dat police deh hey (34 Punt Trench Dam) looking fuh he and harassing we,” Seherene Allicock, the dead man’s mother-in-law, said.
The woman told this newspaper that she last saw Leo, as he is called, day before yesterday.
When asked where he is employed, Allicock said that Dundas operated a fishing boat, but recently stopped because something went mechanically wrong with the engine of the boat.
They claimed that all day yesterday they were hearing rumours that Dundas was killed by police, but up to late in the evening they had not confirmed those rumours.
When this newspaper arrived at the man’s Punt Trench Dam home, relatives had gathered and were questioning whether or not the rumour was true.
After being shown a photograph of the slain man, relatives, including the man’s mother, Rita Brown, and his wife, began wailing. It was at that point that the family’s worst fears were confirmed.
