The gruesome discovery was made on Monday morning when Cus’s body was found with a large cut wound on his neck.

“I know that police have arrested and charged the uncle of the deceased person and it seems to be an issue between them. Again, the police in Punta Gorda were very quick on that. They cracked the case. The person confessed and I believe pretty good case against that individual and so that matter is now in the hands of the court.”

 

Cus was freed of a murder charge in 2018.
