Natasha Bernard, the mother of murdered Korner Kick restaurant manager Tevin Parris, yesterday said that while he had received threats in the past, his life had not been threatened.
Stabroek News yesterday reported that Bernard had said that Parris, who was found dead in his house last Monday, was fearful for his life since he had received death threats in the past. “One thing I did know for sure is that my son was fearful for his life because he would have got several calls about coming in at Korner Kick and all these things,” Bernard had said. “Sometimes he would got to switch cars, he would sleep and whatever… so, I don’t know. I am not pointing fingers at anybody; I am not god but I know that god is there,” she had added.
However, Bernard yesterday clarified that her son received threats but not death threats.
Parris, 21, of Lot 66 Garnett Street, Newtown, Kitty, Georgetown, was discovered dead in his house with a gunshot wound to his head on Monday morning.
Stabroek News was told that Parris’ lifeless body was discovered in a bedroom located in the upper flat of his house by an uncle around 8.20 am on Monday.
A gun was found next to his body although he was not a licensed firearm holder.
A man, said to be a friend of Parris, was taken into custody for questioning on Wednesday. He remains in custody. The police was on Friday granted an extension to further detain him for another 72-hours.
