In the year 2006, Stacy Wilson, a twenty-one years old girl fell victim to the cruel wrath of a man named Shorn Samuel, who was in his thirties. According to an eyewitness, on the day the incident took place, Samuel was spotted at the hospital where Stacy was working at.

The witness who is Garfield Henderson, Senior Engineering Assistant at the Milton Cato Memorial Hospital, revealed that Samuel was trying to get Stacy’s attention but that did not work. The witness asked Stacy if she had an idea of who Samuel was and Samuel answered by saying that Stacy is his cousin.

The witness added that Stacy said she didn’t want to talk to Samuel after Samuel asked her if he could speak with her. Stacy reportedly left work around 3:45 p.m. and caught the minibus for the Leeward Bus Terminal. Samuel also boarded the same minibus.

A passenger called Mavis Alexander reveals that while the bus was parked at the bus terminal, Stacy, who was seated in front of her switched to a different seat because of the continuous harassment by Samuel.

Mavis Alexander said, ‘I saw when Stacy went to sit next to another girl, then I hear Shorn start to grumble and then Stacy say leave me. It got to a point where Wilson left her seat and sat behind the driver. After that I see Shorn get up and I see a cutlass drop out from his right back pocket and he grab it and put it back, she related.

Samuel got out of the van, pulled the cutlass, and started firing chops at Stacy. Stacy ran out of the van and went under the bus to be safe. Then Samuel cut off her right hand with the machete. Frightened onlookers watched in shock as Samuel pulled her out from under the bus and began beheading the victim, taking numerous blows.

Samuel seemed to revel in his performance as he held up Stacy’s head for the crowd to have a glimpse. He reportedly kissed her face before dumping it on the floor. When police arrived, he threw down his gun and knelt to surrender. The unrepentant killer saluted the crowd as police arrested him. Stacy’s head and right hand were found about five meters from her body.
