JENSEN LA VENDE
Relatives of murdered mother Jamie Fitz-Worme
were encouraged to be forgiving yesterday as they
paid their final respects to her.
Speaking at the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah s Wit-
nesses, along Nelson Street, Arima, the elder Earl
David encouraged the family to be forgiving and turn
to Jehovah as that would be the only way for them
to reunite with her in paradise. During his exhortation,
David said forgiveness brought joy.
"Jehovah is not to be blamed Rianne," David said,
pointing to Fitz-Worme s five-year-old daughter who
witnessed her mother s killing.
David was responding to a the question from the
child who asked why did Jehovah allow her mother
to be killed since she did nothing wrong to anyone.
He said that when people turn away from Jehovah
to a life of sin the results were death and pain.
"The truth is when people don t know Jehovah
they allow sin to warp their minds. Pray to Jehovah
for peace. Forgiveness brings joy. Don t dwell on 9.20
pm on Sunday, July 12, but look ahead towards par-
adise, Rianne, Renee and Gregory," David said.
David sought to comfort the mourners by telling
them Fitz-Worme would be resurrected one day and
that her greatest wish would be to see her family
again. He encouraged the family and the mourners
alike that they should turn to Jehovah if they wanted
to see Fitz-Worme again.
According to police reports, sometime after 9 pm
on Sunday, Fitz-Worme, 37, of Building 14, Unit 5,
Rosewood Avenue, Malabar, was at home with her
husband Gregory and her two daughters Rianne, 8,
and Renne, 5, when two gunmen stormed in and
shot her multiple times.
Police said Gregory, 40, was pushed aside as the
gunmen chased Fitz-Worme through her home and
shot her. Neighbours said the woman had begged
for her children s lives to be spared. Police are probing
a domestic link to the murder as the woman was
scheduled to attend court, last Monday, concerning
a breach of a protection order.
Investigations are continuing into the killing.
Police are investigating the daylight shooting of
handyman Marlon Brown, 38, who was killed on
his jobsite in Morvant.
Investigators said it was a case of mistaken identity
as the victim bore close resemblance to someone
involved in gang activity.
According to police, Brown, of Chinapoo Gardens,
Morvant, was working on repairing a wall along the
Lady Young Road, Morvant, near the walkover, around
8.30 am, when a gunman approached him and shot
him. Brown was taken to the Port-of-Spain General
Hospital where he died while being treated.
Police said Brown was not known to be involved
in criminal activities.
Brown s death pushed the murder toll to 217 for
the year. The figure for the corresponding period last
year was 240, according to the Homicide Bureau of
Investigations. Homicide officers are continuing

cle near Lopinot junction.
Police said Phillip crashed head on into a black
Chevrolet. Phillip, as well as the driver of the Chevrolet,
Dale Le Croix, of Arima, was taken to the Eric Williams
Medical Sciences Complex where Phillip died around
3.30 am. Le Croix remains warded in a serious con-
dition, police said.
Speaking with journalists yesterday, Phillip s cousin,
Ronald Gildao, said Phillip was a very ambitious man
who was working two jobs to refurbish his home. He
said his cousin was staying at his girlfriend s Trincity
home until the repairs were completed.
Gildao said Phillip was the "quietest person" he
knew and was a very cool person who never drank
alcohol. "The family still in disbelief right now," Gildao
said, adding that the last time he saw his cousin,
whom he called his little brother, was on Sunday when
Phillip visited their home for lunch.
