“There are signs of a few scrapes and bruises on his body but not anything that would seem that he was assaulted in any way. Police are not suspecting foul play.”

So what could have happened to this father of three teenaged children? Colonel Ferguson says after his brother did not return home they became very concerned for his safety because for the past two years he has been increasingly suffering from epileptic seizures. Ferguson says when Godwin left the family’s residence he feared that it was the last time that they would see him alive.

“Maybe he neva want it happen home, round his kids so I seh he must come all the way up yah fi it right.”

Police believe that Slusher may have had a seizure and died.

Ferguson says his brother’s seizures began after he underwent surgery two years ago. Although Slusher did receive regular medical care, he had a habit of discharging himself from the hospital.
