Bodden’s family says that the news of the stabbing took them for surprise. According to Dean Bodden, liquor played a part. After all, Carrington and the alleged killer, Sanjay Pilgrim, were close friends.

“Deh dah good friends. Deh dah friend from ever since yuh know and dah like mi bwai trust he more than me because like he fear me in a sense fi no stay close to ah since my bredda close to he.

Andrea Polanco

“You think it was intentional? That they mean fi kill ah?”

 

Dean Bodden

“Dah nuh mean fi kill ah. Dah wah liquor thing. Dah the demon dah the liquor demon do that.”

 

 

Alcohol aside, what would cause such good friends to end a celebration in murder? Dean Bodden noted that his brother and the alleged killer, Sanjay Pilgrim, would always have minor arguments. But, he wasn’t a party to that argument on Sunday night.

 

Dean Bodden

“Fi he baby ma mi deh inna the street because he like trip pahn ih baby ma when ih get nice. When he get high and thing he wah kill fi he baby ma and do lotta thing. So, dat dah weh mek the whole thing get seasoned up.
