Silvie Williams, the sister of 50-year-old Reonol Williams, who disappeared after being struck down at Enmore, East Coast Demerara (ECD), has said that she is giving the Guyana Police Force (GPF) the benefit of the doubt in cracking her brother's case.
Her statement came on the heels of a meeting with Commissioner of Police (ag) Clifton Hicken, who assured her that she would be updated within 48 hours.
"I met with the commissioner, and I think my meeting with them was quite fruitful, so I'm giving them the benefit of the doubt that they will do their work," Silvie said.
The distraught sister told MTV News Update that her brother's children are still trying to come to grips with his disappearance.
"I saw one today [his child]; they're heartbroken because it's their father," she related. Silvie believes that her brother is dead and wants his body so that he can be laid to rest.
It has been two weeks since Williams, a construction worker of Enmore, ECD, went missing. He was reportedly struck down on May 23 by motor vehicle PAB 2252 as he was exiting a taxi.
An eyewitness had informed the police that the vehicle's driver offered to take Reonol to a hospital but never did. While it has been 15 days since he went missing, the distraught sister said she is "trying my best to be calm and at ease."
The 50-year-old man who hails from Region 8, is a father of two and has eight siblings. Citizens held several vigils over the past few days with placards displaying "#justiceforreonol."
