A correctional officer yesterday morning (10/04/19) shot and killed his estranged wife, also a correctional officer, on Waltham Park Road in St Andrew as she headed to work.
Since her death many persons had the saddest things to say about what triggered the murder-suicide. A relative who is the daughter had posted a letter online clearing the air.
Hello everyone. Most persons would be aware of the brutal incident that happened on April 10 with the murder suicide act at Waltham Park yesterday. She was my mother Rouleene. There is so much stories so let me clear the air.
My stepfather abused my mother for years mentally and physically. She was tired of it and left at the beginning of the year. She was filing for divorce.
She was living back and forth at my house and my grandpa's house. This is not the first time he tried to kill her from the year started.
She was on her way to work in the morning when he lay waited for her (with my 12-year-old sister in the car) he saw her and ran to her with his gun.
My sister tried to hold him back saying "Daddy no, MOMMY RUN!" but he flashed her off and continue to chase after my mom. My sister continued behind him.
He approached her and starting putting the gun to her head. My mom said "KC u don't have to do this" he fired the first shot in her stomach.
She was a couple of weeks pregnant which most people did not know but he knew. She fell to the ground.
At this point, my sister was beside her dad. He fired two in her back and one in her head then proceeded to put the gun in his mouth and killed him self. At the moment, he was not dead.
He was gasping for air for a couples minutes well until he died.
Please, I share my story with all to eliminate the defamation of my mother's name and shed light on abuse. If you know anyone being abuse please reach out for help. This is the ultimate act of sadness.
A 12-year-old witness the murder of her mom and a selfless act of her father. Please keep my family especially my sister Patreeka and my 3 year old daughter Zoel in your prayers and thoughts as we grieve the death of my mother Deshanay Clarke.
RIP MOMMY and I will make you proud by taking up where you left of being a mother to my sister ?? I will always and forever love you!
