…Woman Believes Her Son is Wanted for the Murder

Police have not officially released the name of the man wanted for Vargas’ murder, but one woman from Unitedville is convinced that her nineteen year old son is the suspect. Today, Arita Gomez told us that she was picked up by Police and locked down on Saturday as Police tried to find her son Steven. She claims that she and her son live in separate homes, and the first indication that something was wrong was when Police knocked on her door at four thirty Saturday morning.


Arita Gomez, Mother of Murder Suspect

“They ker mi from mi house gone back that the crime scene. When dehn ker mi by the crime scene, dehn just circle around with me. All the time I di tell dehn that unu have to wait mek I make a phone call fu somebody come for the key. They say well if yon oh have nobody—because I tell dehn that I noh have nobody—so if dehn want ker mi, dehn have to ker mi with the lee bwai. My nephew Roshawn, he only three years old.
