Gillett’s Biological Family Says They Thought He Was in U.S.

Laddie Gillett

The biological uncle of fourteen-year-old Laddie Gillett, Henry “Pulu Musa” Gillett says the family is beside themselves over the manslaughter charge that has been filed against his accused killer, Police Corporal, Kareem Martinez. Gillett explained that his sister, Linda Gillett gave up Laddie soon after birth because she was in distress over other issues but that she did so with an agreement that she would be allowed to visit with him. However, her visitations came to an abrupt end when Laddie was four years old. Linda was told that the child had moved to the U.S. with his adopted parents. Henry Gillett said that when the Pinks Alley family got the news early Wednesday morning that Laddie had been shot and killed, they were in disbelief, and the way it happened was even worse.

“How they wa charge this police officer fi manslaughter fi a brutal murder! A minor, a law-abiding citizen of this country! And he wa get charge with murder (manslaughter). Ms Marion, da like police could drive up anywhere eena this country and tek out deh firearm because dehn di work and shoot people like dog. Then they get charge with manslaughter.
