  1. Sleep on ’til Resurrection Morning….. I hope the young man takes the time to consider his ways and be wise.

  2. Many of us are hoping and praying he will get the maximum possible, and be hung by the neck until dead. The spirits of the ancesters are agitated and will not rest until he is legally removed from the land of the living. Spiritual powers are now going into action. They are crying out for JUSTICE. Don’t mess with the ancestors.

    • Take a page out of her mother´s book. The mother has publicly stated at her daughter´s funeral in Anguilla that she holds no malice, hatred or ill-will towards the young man or his family. He will have to face the consequences of his actions according to the laws of Anguilla.

      The ancestors are dead and have no effect on the living. Continued strength, healing and comfort to all affected.

      • Real Talk, I assure you the ancestors are alive and well, and they move amongst us. You see only by the eye of human carnality, but spiritual things are spiritually discerned, and they are more real than natural things, which pass away. Spiritual things are forever. Perhaps you need a new birth. Justice is coming. Wait and see. Spiritual powers in high places are on the alert.

        • Sekunda, the Word of God assures me that the dead are dead. The dead remain as such until the Resurrection. “For the living know that they shall die: but THE DEAD KNOW NOT ANY THING…” (Ecclesiastes 9:5)

          ” His breath goeth forth, he returneth to his earth; in that very day his thoughts perish.” (Psalm 146:4)

          Anything or anyone “moving among us” purporting to be “ancestors” are in reality the fallen angels/demons: “And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.” (2 Cor 11:14)

          These demons aka “familiar spirits” can skilfully impersonate our departed loved ones and may even bring messages of comfort to make us feel good, but they are of a Satanic source. Same demonic entities that appear to people as UFOs. Necromancy is spiritually dangerous. Time is running out. Satan knows his time is short, so he is increasing his deception more and more. Thankfully, (if we so CHOOSE) the Creator has given us a guide to make it through to the end.

          • Real Talk, you seem to be possessed of a fundamentalist spirit, not based in Holy Scripture. Yes, the physical body dies (and at death is DEAD), but the real person is alive and well. The Spirit has returned unto the Lord who gave it. Man is spirit, soul, and body. The body IS dead, but will rise again on Resurrection Day, however the spirit is alive and well. As Paul declared, “to be absent from the body is to PRESENT with the Lord”, very much alive and well. This is Bible truth, and to even hint that it is demonic, that ideology is false doctrine and originates in the pit. You are probably young and inexperienced, but if your heart is “real” the Great Lord of Glory will open your understanding and lead you into deeper truth, in the lovely name of Jesus, the one and only Saviour of the world. Be very careful not to ascribe to a “satanic source” the things of God. That is blasphemy, and you don’t want to mess with that. We are surrounded by a mighty cloud of witnesses, just as the Word of God declares. They are not DEAD, they are ALIVE and they are REAL.

    • The trial is in Anguilla and they do not have capital punishment on the books as like Antigua. He will merely be sent to Her Majesty’s Prison for whatever the length of sentence will be. Nevertheless, let justice be done!
