After being arrested he said that he “killed the devil” while he had a Bible with him.
Residents of Valle Real Urbanization in Tipuro II, Monagas State, described the young man who killed and stabbed his mother, identified as Francis Gil, as having “bad conduct” and “bad steps”.
According to what was published by La Verdad de Monagas, the man was clearly intoxicated at the time of the crime. Furthermore, when he turned himself in, he had a Bible in his hand and said that he had “killed the devil.”
Neighbors there expressed that it was normal to hear loud discussions between the mother and her son. But, “because of the boy’s misbehavior,” they ignored him and never got into trouble with him.
But on Thursday the situation was different, the screams were utterly desperate. So he called the police, but they didn’t show up until hours later.
“We got tired of calling the police, we called 911 and they never sent a police unit. We searched till the quadrilateral number and we didn’t have any answer,” said a resident, who did not wish to be identified.
When the police arrived it was too late, Francis was already dead.
“When we heard about the scam, all the neighbors rushed out to see what was happening. We reached near the house, some people even tried to enter, but all the doors of the house were locked. Suddenly nothing else was heard,” another resident told La Prensa de Monagas.
“She was a quiet lady. I’ll walk by and say hello. That’s how I want to remember her and not hear her scream in pain,” she cries.
Residents of the urbanisation said that the boy was allegedly involved in some criminal acts, and earlier several security agencies had reached the spot in search of the youth.
The victim lived alone with her son in the house where the incident took place. He had another younger daughter, but he did not live with her. A few years ago an old man was murdered, published by La Prensa de Monagas.
Who is the murderer?
Slender build, tall, green eyes and blonde hair, this is the man who killed his mother.
He attended high school at the Miguel José Sáenz High School, located on Avenida Bolivar in Maturín. A professor at that institute, whose identity has been withheld, remarked that “Santi” rarely attended classes and when he did, he did not enter the classroom.
“There was very little admission in my class,” he said of the young man. The grades were low and I always saw him hanging out with boys who, according to the other teachers, were on the wrong track,” he told Monagas Press.
“He never wanted to study or do anything productive. About three years ago his mother got him a job as a taxi driver, but it was worse because he kept getting into trouble by hitting other cars. I Can’t believe what he did to his mom,” said one resident.
