Keturah, the sister of homicide victim Barry Augustin, recalled that he disclosed before his death that someone had threatened to kill him.

“Just before this happened, he brought his mother a breadfruit and told her she wouldn’t be seeing him again because someone owed him money, and that person told him they would take his life,” Keturah told reporters.

“He told his mother he was going to get his money no matter what happened,” the sister said.

According to a police release, on Sunday, February 4, 2024, at about 10:00 a.m., officers launched a probe into the discovery of Barry Augustin’s body at Morne Road, Castries.

The body had gunshot injuries.

The thirty-six-year-old Castries vendor was a La Toc resident.

“Barry was a very quiet individual. He was very helpful. He always stuck to himself and his friends were very few. I never knew my brother to always be in trouble so I could say that this is very surprising,” the deceased’s sister declared.

“I would not say that my brother was a saint. He was not in a gang. This could happen to anybody,” Keturah stated, adding that the deceased was very humble.

She said the community needs to come together against crime.

“It does not matter until it comes to your doorstep,” the sister told reporters.

In addition, she called for justice in the case of the fatal shooting of her brother.
