PHILIPSBURG–Franky Brunache was shot in cold blood, execution-style, by unknown assailant(s) in front of his home in Hope Estate late Tuesday evening. Police arrived on the scene after 11:00pm and found the young man on the floor of a black SUV near the driver’s side.

Police Chief Carl John and a Prosecutor were on scene late Tuesday as investigators were speaking to any possible witnesses trying to piece together what had taken place. Forensic officers also bagged and tagged any possible evidence found at the man’s home.

As the investigation continues, it is still too early to speculate on the reason for the shooting. However, police suspect that the bullets that made multiple holes found on the vehicle caused the victim’s immediate death.

Police spokesman Chief Inspector Ricardo Henson is calling on any person in the community who might have information about the murder to call 911.

SUCKER GARDEN–The man who drove himself to hospital with a gunshot wound on Monday night was said to have been shot in the abdomen outside his home in The Keys area of Sucker Garden sometime after 9:00pm.

The Daily Herald understands the shooting was a case of mistaken identity and the shooters had been after the victim’s son. The son was said to have been involved in a robbery that took place at Beach Plaza Casino on November 2, when some US $500,000 was stolen.

One of the robbers is said to have been arrested since then and had been found in possession of more than US $80,000.

Apparently the co-suspects of the shooting believed the intended victim had given information to the police and therefore was responsible for the arrest. The intended victim is said to have fled to the Dominican Republic after he found out he might be a target. – The Daily Herald

GREAT BAY – Emilien Pompelio Kruythoff died at the St, Maarten Medical Center at 12.25 a.m. on Monday from gunshot wounds he sustained just before midnight at the Aaron Jacobs Drive in Cay Bay. The 26-year old was hit by one or more bullets in the left side of his body.

Police received a report about the shooting around midnight. Police patrols, paramedics, detectives and the forensic department went to Cape Bay to investigate. Officers stopped a car that was leaving the scene at high speed and found that the female driver was actually on her way to the hospital with the victim.

Paramedics had not arrived yet, but they took over on Welfare Road and attended to Kruythoff on the way to the hospital. The staff at the St. Maarten Medical Center attempted to save the victim’s life, but around 12.25 a.m. the doctor pronounced his death.

The police confiscated the body for further investigation. The forensic department closed off the crime scene on Aaron Jacobs Drive and examined the scene for evidence, while detectives spoke with potential witnesses.

Simpson Bay police patrols filed reports that they had been called twice on Sunday evening to investigate a heated dispute between the victim and another man whereby possibly a gun was involved.

A patrol spotted the victim in the area, but when Kruythoff saw the police he took off running through the dark and narrow alleys in the vicinity.

Witnesses told police that they had heard an argument prior to the shooting and that they had heard several shots. The detective department is investigating the case and asking anyone who may have information to call the tip line at #9300 or the police station at 542 22 22.

On August 21, Kruythoff appeared in the Court in First Instance, where the prosecution demanded the execution of a conditional prison sentence for a rather juvenile case of shoplifting, because he had not stuck to the conditions that kept him out of prison.

Kruythoff was under treatment for drug addiction at Turning Point; this was a part of his conviction. According to his attorney Geert Hatzmann he had left the facility because there was nothing more to learn for him there and he thought he was able to stay clean on his own.

“The case was adjourned because he was doing well,” Hatzmann said yesterday. “My client left Turning Point but he went on his own initiative to the prosecutor’s office to explain this and to say that he had found a job.”

The location of the shooting is in the vicinity of Windsor Road in Cay Bay – a well-known hotbed for drug dealing. – TODAY
