Wassouf

(SNO) — Two people are in custody in connection with the shooting death of 49-year-old Syrian national and Rodney Heights resident Souheil Wassouf, HTS is reporting.

The two were taken as persons of interest, days after the brutal execution-style slaying of the businessman in Jacmel/Anse la Raye on February 11, 2019.

No further details were given and no charges have yet been laid against the two.

HTS said a post-mortem was done on February 14 but the details have not yet been released.

Sources told SNO that Wassouf, who was known to drive around the island and sells items from his vehicle, was attacked while in or around his vehicle. His silver Toyota Voxy minivan (a twin of the Toyota Noah) has at least four bullet holes, two in the windscreen and one on the bonnet.

He was found motionless at the back of his vehicle with the driver’s door open and the front-seat passenger window partially shattered, apparently by gunfire. It appears he tried to escape but was cut down at the back of the minivan.

Wassouf, who once operated a store in Castries, is survived by a wife and two children.

    dignitaries are about to visit our Island for the festivities. Today it is this one; tomorrow
    it could be you, God forbid. Sorry this will go on unless you start hanging. YOU KILL - YOU HANG.

  4. The police should start watching the show the first 48 hours. They would learn how to solve crimes.

  5. I can bet my last quarter, that those two(2) in custody are GUD boys, they never and would never hurt a fly, just wait for their trifling parents or family members to crawl out from under the rock to defend them.
    My great grandmother always say that the up holder is worse than the thief, lots of parents who've dropped the ball in raising their delinquent children are always ready to defend them, but lots of these same parents are going to bury their GUD boys.
    We were are are still in some ways the envy of many nations, but lately these illiterate fools making Helen shame.
    May God bless us and May God continue to bless The Helen of the West.

  6. Poor guy making an honest living when he was mercilessly gunned down by those parasites. His wife and children are now left without support. I am exhausted by the apologists for that sort of behaviour. There are a lot of unemployed youth who would never entertain those ideas. Bless every one of them.
