Now that the police have solved the six-year-old mystery of Babita Sarjou, the mother of Trevor Rose, who was killed in 2014, is convinced that Crime Chief, Wendell Blanhum will bring her justice.
Blanhum’s decision to re-open the murder investigation of the 33-year-old fashion designer brought hope to Lillian Browne.
The mother had been waiting patiently to hear about her son’s case and is convinced that the time has come for her son’s killer(s) to face the consequences of their action, which has left eight children without a father.
“I cried when I saw the papers this morning (yesterday) and maybe it was tears of joy and I am happy that they are going to re-open the case,” Browne said while adding that she has had many sleepless nights thinking about the way in which her son was killed.
Browne believes there is evidence that will lead the cops to the perpetrators. However, she opined that certain “things” might be missing from her son’s file.
For one—a gun that was found on the scene when the father of eight was slain might not be there. Moments after Rose was killed, the police had issued a press release stating that a 9mm. pistol with 19 matching rounds was recovered.
It is believed that the gunman might have dropped the weapon after killing the fashion designer. “I was told that the gun was returned to its owner,” Browne said.
Through the grapevine, she said that she was told that the man, who was contracted to kill her son, goes by the name, “Demon.”
She opined that Rose’s attacker is known to the police since a wanted bulletin was issued for him last year.
In a previous interview, the devastated woman said, “The police know exactly who killed my child. The man that killed Trevor is a licensed firearm holder, but he did not use his weapon to kill my son. He used another gun but his weapon somehow fell at the scene.”
Kaieteur News was told that Rose might have been killed for having an affair with the wife of a local “drug dealer.”
The woman is said to be in her 50s and it is believed that when the woman’s husband found out, he paid to have Rose killed.
Browne said that the older woman even visited her home to meet her son.
The 33-year-old was fatally shot at the Eccles Public Road, East Bank Demerara (EBD) while travelling in a taxi with the mother of one of his children, Latoya Towler.
During the execution-style killing of Rose, Towler was shot to the buttocks and the taxi driver Troy Nieunkerk was shot in the left shoulder.
Rose was pronounced dead at the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation (GPHC) while Nieunkerk and Towler were hospitalized at the same medical institution for a few days.
Recalling what happened that night, Nieunkerk told investigators that he was heading home and offered Rose and Towler a drop to Eccles.
While at Eccles, a tinted car, which was following the trio from Agricola, pulled up alongside Nieunkerk’s vehicle and asked why he was driving so recklessly.
Kaieteur News was told that the driver of the tinted car parked his vehicle in front of Nieunkerk’s car, exited and opened fire, killing Rose on the spot.
The shooter then got into his car and sped away.
The police claimed that they had worked on a number of leads but none was successful. However, Rose’s mother is convinced, that if they question “Demon” and the woman her son was having the affair with, they might get somewhere.
The woman is now waiting on the day someone would call and inform her that her son’s killer has been arrested.
