“Police responded to a call regarding a fight in progress, and when they arrived at Stork Street just minutes to four in the morning, on Sunday the twelfth October, they saw twenty-one year old Lynden Flowers lying in the drain, suffering from apparent stab wounds to the chest.
He was rushed to the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital, and he later succumbed to his injuries while there, at about six-thirty in the morning.
Again, police I have personally visited the Officer Commanding Ladyville, and they have detained quite a few persons in connection to this stabbing incident, but the update so far, I have not been updated at this moment.”
Lyndon’s father, football coach Michael “Wataplat” Flowers, has told the media that his son had gone out socializing and he learned of his son’s death from a female visitor around 4:00 in the morning. He observed his son’s lifeless body face down in the street, with two apparent stab wounds.
Michael Flowers believes his son was trailed while coming home from the village basketball court.
The younger Flowers worked as a fisherman on occasions, and his father says he stayed out of trouble and was not known to have any enemies.
