Was Leslie Gillett’s murder connected to the double murder at his shop two months earlier?

By BBN Staff: Police are investigating the possibility that the murder of Burrell Boom Village businessman 35-year-old Leslie Gillett may be connected to the November 2021 double murder that happened at the same establishment.

On Friday, January 21, a gunman went to Matilda’s Mini Mart sometime after 6:00 p.m. and let off a barrage of bullets that ultimately killed Gillett.

Today, Head of Communications for the Office of the Commissioner of Police, Assistant Superintendent Fitzroy Yearwood said that information has reached the department of a possible connection between Gillett’s death and the shooting of 21-year-old Kendra Miguel and 27-year-old Dennis Brown.

“We have interviewed some persons that believe so but we cannot go just on belief. We at the police department have to stick to the facts and rely on that to try and bring some kind of clarity. But people in the village are rumoring that, I will not deny that, but we here cannot go on rumors,” Yearwood stressed.

While police continue to investigate Gillett’s murder, the murder of Miguel and Brown remains unsolved.
