Still No Charges for Choc Murder

On Tuesday afternoon, a post mortem exam was conducted on the body of sixteen year old Ivan Choc, who was heartlessly killed in front of his parents and siblings inside their house last Friday night in Roaring Creek Village. Pathologist Doctor Mario Estradabran certified that the resident of a Young Bank Road address in Roaring Creek died from “massive brain damage due to head trauma, due to firearm wound.” The shocking murder traumatized the Choc family as young Ivan pleaded for his life. His father explains.

“My wife heard walking outside in the water….first she heard somebody like one minute gone behind the house and another like one minute later, another one come see. So my wife tell me are you not going to go outside and see if something is happening. And as we come outside, the guys were already on the step. I had a machete in my hand should in case something. We opened the door, me and my wife and we see dah who. They dressed in black T-shirt tie upon their head and you could see their eyebrow and all of half of their nose. Everything we see them clearly.”

“Around eight p.m., police received information of a shooting incident. As a result, they visited the residence of Mister Eluterio Choc, who reside in the Young Bank Road, Roaring Creek Village. On arrival there, they saw the motionless body of his son, Ivan Choc, who is a minor, who appeared to have two gunshot wounds—one on his right hand and the next gunshot wound on the right side of his face.”

“The person who shot my son was there standing for five or six minutes in front of my son. Maybe he think double mind before he killed my son. And he never wanted to kill maybe my son because my son was begging him. My son draw himself underneath the table and he say, “Please, please, please don’t kill me? Please don’t kill me?” And the guy looked at him. He was so sorry when he done this terrible stuff to my son. And from there, he just crack the pump twelve and ih say bam and he ketch this first meat on my hand. Ih see that ih neva ketch my son good and my son beg him again. “Please bwai? Please, please? I beg yo don’t kill me bwai? Don’t kill me?” And the bwai crank up the pump twelve again and bah; ih ketch my son on his head and his brains. And from there, the next one said, with the nine [millimeter] caliber said we kill everybody, but lone gun sign. And the next person who kill my son say “No, it’s just him.” So they gone and when they heard that my son never dead instantly because he was still breathing; breathing for like five-ten minutes before the police arrive.”


Police detained two persons following the shooting; the men have since been charged for firearm offenses in reference to ammunition that was found in their possession. It is believed, however, that they are suspects in the cold-blooded murder of Choc.
