A mother, who believes her son’s lifeless body was found in his burnt vehicle earlier this year, is appealing to the powers that be for closure.
Agnes Pope, mother of former Antigua & Barbuda Defense Force soldier Ashon Martin, said since the incident in August, no DNA or forensic results have been provided to her.
“Today is the 14th of December. (Four) months and (three) days since his passing and up to now no DNA result. Please, please, please, I am begging, please, I need my son to put to rest. I can’t take it anymore,” the grieving mother said in a Facebook post.
On August 11, a body was found in the front passenger seat of a burnt Toyota Noah van in the Yeptons area while police officers were on patrol about 1:45 a.m.
Police have not yet confirm the body to be that of the 26-year-old soldier, and neither have they ruled the death a murder.
Pope remembers her son as a “very nice child” and “mannersable.”
“I am not saying this because he is my son I am saying it because its the truth. Up to this day I can’t understand why would someone do such thing to him,” she said.
“I am in so much pain. My chest is hurting so much. My pressure keep going up and down. I will never stop grieving his death but putting him to rest will give me a little peace.”
Lawmen want people with information to come forward by calling the Criminal Investigations Department at 462-3913 or 462-3914.
