The mother of a 12-year-old boy, who was found hanging in the backyard of his Fryers Road, Checker Hall, St Lucy home last Thursday night, has broken her silence on her son’s death.
Three days after the tragic incident, Julianne Weekes was subjected to detailed questioning by officers at the Crab Hill police station in St Lucy for over five hours today.
A team from Barbados TODAY was present this morning when she entered the station at 10′ o’clock, and again this afternoon when she was dropped off at her home, a short distance away, at 3:30 p.m. by lawmen.
Breaking her silence for the first time on the tragedy, a tired-looking Weekes, who spoke to Barbados TODAY through the side widow of her home, said she loved Shamar and was deeply saddened by his passing.
The 38-year-old woman, who is employed by A&C Security as a security guard and is currently attached to the Arawak Cement Plant in St Lucy, also complained of feeling exhausted and said she was finding it very difficult to sleep ever since Shamar’s death.
“I will miss him,” she said, lamenting that many untruths had been said since the death of the late student of Coleridge & Parry secondary school.
