AARON HUMES Reporting: 44-year-old Thomas Ferguson Sr. died on Saturday, February 22, two months after being stabbed, allegedly by his nephew Oliver Peters, who will now be charged with murder.
Today we spoke to his wife Lorraine who says her husband had been improving since leaving hospital but complications which set in led to his readmittance and death.
She says he began experiencing problems with his wound after his discharge from the hospital. His sudden death has left her with eight children to raise, the youngest six years old, while coping a with a heavy hospital bill of $28,000 and funeral arrangements.
Anyone who can assist the family may contact Clarence Pascasio, Ferguson’s nephew, at 634-7413.
Pascasio told us that the dispute which led to Ferguson’s stabbing and death at the hands of Peters centered on land.
Peters was determined to get his hands on his uncle’s property and had always threatened to get even with his uncle and once even threatened him with death in front of his children and the stabbing took place in the view of one of the younger children.
He says he wants Peters to be jailed to think about what he did.
