38-year-old Jean Stenio Colet, an inhabitant of Bois-Marchand, was murdered yesterday afternoon, January 21, during a fight. Members of the SSU had to be deployed to the region to control a crowd that had gathered at a police station.
The police has identified 5 suspects who were taken to the office of the Major Crimes Investigation Team (MCIT) for interrogation. Another suspect (believed to be the main one) has, however, escaped with the murder weapon which is said to be a screwdriver.
An autopsy will be performed today.
The family of the victim blames the police. In a statement to DefiMedia.info, his sister says that the police had failed to capture the individuals who had previously committed a theft at her father’s place, and that they came back and killed her brother who is said to have filed a complaint at the police two times.
