Many questions have been left unanswered, in an apparent case of murder-suicide, as 48-year-old businessman, Junior Wint, brutally ended the life of his 23-year-old common law wife,Wendy Scarlett, and then snuffed out his own, at Flamstead Gardens in St. James last Friday.
In what is being called a case of love gone sour, Scarlett, a bar operator, was walking along the Flamstead main road about 1:30 p.m. on Friday, when Wint drove up in a grey Toyota Corolla motorcar.
An argument developed between them and Wint, who was a licensed firearm holder,alighted from the vehicle andallegedly brandished the gun, a 9mm Canik pistol, which he used to shoot Scarlett and then turned the weapon on himself.
The police were alerted and on arrival, Wint and Scarlett were seen lying along the main road with bullet wounds to the heads.
Both were taken to hospital where they were pronounced dead.
The gun was later handed over to the police by a relative of Scarlett.
