Man killed for jewelry

A Scar­bor­ough labour­er has be­come To­ba­go ninth mur­der vic­tim for 2018.

The vic­tim was iden­ti­fied as An­der­son “Fal­co” Ju­goon, 34, of Gar­den­side Street, Scar­bor­ough.

Ac­cord­ing to po­lice re­ports, Ju­goon was killed short­ly af­ter 10 pm on Wednes­day.

Guardian Me­dia un­der­stands that the vic­tim's fa­ther Naz­im Ju­goon, a 63-year-old re­tiree of the same ad­dress, was in his bed­room his son knocked on the door and asked him to open it.

It is al­leged that when the el­der Ju­goon opened the door he saw his son and two masked men, dressed in dark cloth­ing and armed with guns, stand­ing in front of him.

One of the men dealt An­der­son a blow to the back of his head with his gun and pushed him in­to the room and de­mand­ed that he hand over his gold jew­el­ry. One of the men then ran­sacked the house, while the oth­er went out­side with An­der­son.

When both men left in­side the house, Naz­im im­me­di­ate­ly closed his room door and es­caped through an­oth­er area.

Be­fore he left, how­ev­er, he had heard sev­er­al loud ex­plo­sions and a short while lat­er a ve­hi­cle sped off along the Claude Noel High­way.

The Scar­bor­ough Po­lice Sta­tion was con­tact­ed. When of­fi­cers ar­rived on the scene a trail of blood led them An­der­son's life­less body in his neigh­bour’s yard. He had been shot sev­er­al times about the body and was al­ready dead.

Dis­trict Med­ical Of­fi­cer Dr Clink­er vis­it­ed the scene, pro­nounced him dead and or­dered the body re­moved to the Scar­bor­ough Hos­pi­tal mor­tu­ary. A post-mortem is sched­uled to be per­formed to de­ter­mine the ex­act cause of death.

The To­ba­go Homi­cide Bu­reau is con­tin­u­ing in­ves­ti­ga­tions.
