[www.inewsguyana.com] – The final of three homosexuals who died as a result of a double murder and suicide on July 20, is slated to be buried later this afternoon (Monday, August 4).
Jason John, a Model and Dancer, also known as a ‘Jada’ received his final respects from friends and family at the Sandy’s Funeral Home on Chapel Street, Georgetown.
Unlike the funeral of 24 – year – old Car Sinclair, known as ‘Tyra’ this funeral was not marred by drama and commotion and was more civil and organised.
Among those present were: persons from the National School of Dance, Trans Gender United, Society Against Sexual Orientation and Discrimination and other Lesbian, Gay, Bi – Sexual and Transgenger (LGBT) members.
Many were heard commenting on what a peaceful person Jason John was, something that was reflected in the caliber of persons who turned out to view the body.
John and Sinclair were stabbed to death by Samuel Bristolwho later committed suicide; he lived a secretive gay life which his family claimed they were not aware of.
John’s body is slated to be placed at Le Repentir Cemetery.
