Screen_Shot_2014-08-04_at_7.50.58_PMThe death of the eighteen year old teenager on Sunday morning has shocked the community and has left one more family in mourning. While police continue their investigation, we spoke with the mother of the deceased, Sharon Bailey. She said that the last time she spoke with her son was on Saturday night when he called her to inform her that he had reached Orange Walk. Bailey says it was not something she allowed him to do often but never expected what happened hours after he left home.

Sharon Bayliss - Mother of the deceased

“I spoke to my son on the 3rd Saturday night, he called me from Orange walk stating that he had reached because before he left he said mom as I reach there I’ll give you a call, he called me and he told me I am here and I told him Roy just take care and don’t get into any trouble remember you are not at home and he said no worry mom I just come to have some fun, it was his birthday the Friday and he asked me and I don’t normally send my children on his own normally he would go with his brother if he goes out but my other son he was working and he came and asked me permission to go. When he recall me he said, mom I reach as soon as I left in the morning I’ll give you a call, that was the last I heard from my son because he didn’t have the opportunity to call me again in the morning."

“I don’t know if you have spoken to the friends that were with Roy have they mentioned anything to you in them going to Fiesta Rama?”

Sharon Bayliss - Mother of the deceased

“Yes, they went to Fiesta Rama but after that they left and went to a bar I don’t even remember the name Hi5 bar but that wasn’t the plan the plan was just to go to Fiesta Rama.”

Victor Castillo - Reporter

“Now did they mention any discussion any dispute they had with anybody in Orange Walk?”

Sharon Bayliss - Mother of the deceased

“Well the friend that was with him at the time of the shooting he was very, he was very discard he was so distract that only his mom could have spoken to him and he told his mom yes they had some kind of altercation but I don’t know, I don’t know what could be so… I don’t know for somebody to just come out and shoot up my son, I don’t know to me it just sounds senseless all of these deaths that are happening right now.”

Victor Castillo - Reporter

“Now, have you spoken to the police, what are the police telling you in the preliminary investigation?”

Sharon Bayliss - Mother of the deceased

“In the preliminary investigation is just that they are just still looking for the person that was identified that as of yesterday when I left nothing after that.”

Bailey said the last thing her son had told her is that he would call her again as soon as he left Orange Walk the following morning and headed back home. Unfortunately he was never able to make that call. After the incident, Bailey says she tried finding out what led to her son’s untimely death.

Sharon Bayliss - Mother of the deceased

“Well, they did a parade with some pictures and he came close to one I don’t know if he is the person but he says that that is the person so I guess that he is the person that they are looking for, I don’t know if they have found him or not so that is what he says. I don’t know what to say because my son was a happy type of person, he was out there to have fun but now yes you have altercations with people but you know... really and truly I don’t know what to say...”

Victor Castillo – Reporter

“What would you like to be done in order of your sons’ death?”

Sharon Bayliss - Mother of the deceased

“I just need for them to find the person and for the court to take its course and just to have them get the correct person and have the police do their job.”

Police continue their investigations into this latest homicide.
