His sister, Wilma Thompson Whylie, says that while Winston was not known to trouble anyone, he was previously involved in a murder many years ago.

He had also been recently threatened.

Winston Whylie was known in the area as a handyman and repairman and well-liked.

Police were immediately in contact with the family and continue their investigations.

This is the latest in a series of tragedies for the Thompson-Whylie family, following a hit-and-run incident involving Wilma’s grandchildren and the death of another brother, taximan Norman Thompson, in May.
