Family wants justice for Snoogy’s killing

Tuesday, April 17, 2018
Mark “Snoogy” Singh of St James who was found murdered at Fort George on Sunday.

The body of a man found at Fort George in St James has been identified as Mark “Snoogy” Singh, 22.

The body was identified by relatives yesterday at the Forensic Science Centre. Singh lived at Ross Lands in St James.

Singh’s body was found along a track at Fort George at about 6.30 pm on Sunday. His body was clad in a blue jersey and a pair of side-striped sweat pants.

Speaking with the T&T Guardian yesterday, a close male relative of Singh, who wished for his name to be withheld, described Singh’s killer or killers as cowards.

The relative said the family is very distraught over Singh’s killing and wondered why as he was not involved in any gang or drug related activities.

“This killing get out of hand and is we the black people suffering here in this country and nobody cares. Our lives are not animals. You see dead animals at the side of the road…you not supposed to see humans like that,” Singh’s relative said.

“Snoogy was a precious gem. Very hard working, kind and caring guy. Everybody he came across loved him because of his outstanding personality,” the relative added.

Family members said that even the police do not have “one clue” as to why Singh was killed.

“That is to tell you that the police didn’t even know about Snoogy. If they knew about him it would be good things, nothing bad,” another relative said.

Relatives are praying and hoping for justice for their loved one.

Investigations are continuing.

Cops probe man’s murder in Mamoral

Almost one year after a father and his five-year-old daughter were murdered in their one room house, a man from the same area, just a few houses away, was shot while on his way home from liming at a nearby village bar.

Dexter Sorillo, 35, was at a bar liming and at about 5.30 pm on Sunday he left to walk to his home at Leekham Road, Mamoral, when several loud explosions were heard.

Residents later found Sorillo with multiple gunshot wounds. He was taken to the Chaguanas District Health Facility where he died.

Police said a man, believed to be the gunman, was seen running into nearby bushes.

On April 30, Solomon Joseph and his five-year-old daughter, Saleesha Faith Joseph were both killed while asleep in bed at their Leekham Road home.

The double murder of father and daughter remains unsolved and residents strongly believe that they would not get justice for Sorillo’s murder.

Police are yet to determine a motive for Sorillo’s murder.
