ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI- Trinity A. Thomas, the 11-year-old student of the St George’s Primary School who was gunned down in West End, on the main island of Tortola, on November 22, 2017 will be giving a final farewell on Friday December 15, 2017.

Thomas, along with Franklin E. Penn Jr, 41, was killed when two gunmen on scooters opened fire on a vehicle in the vicinity of the West End Cemetery.

Thomas’ mother, Romona Moses, was wounded in the execution style shooting but has since been discharged from hospital.

No one has reportedly been arrested for the killings, which have sparked outrage in the tiny British Overseas Territory of the Virgin Islands.

Meanwhile, a memorial service for Trinity A. Thomas will be held at the St George's Anglican Church on Friday December 15, 2017.

Viewing is from 9:00 A.M – 10:00 A.M.

The body of the late Thomas will be cremated.

    I wish I was back in time for this one, likewise wish for it to be the last one. This could have been avoided like all other crim if the shooters friends wasn’t ratch themselves to hype up or if their true friends and to seriously talk with them. My heart still saddened by this mess but home is truly a beautiful and better place.

    just the photo shows an angel to me and not a ghost.If you look at it from other angles you will see but directly yes perhaps its the lighting on this one. Sleep on angel and be watching over us all up in heaven.
