Murder In Crooked Tree Village



Murder in Crooked Tree Village.

Mr. Barry Blayney, a 76 year New Zealand national, has been found murdered in his home in Crooked Tree Village. He has been living in Crooked Tree Village for about 10 years and was operating a small grocery store.

This morning a neighbor, Fiona Building went to the shop to purchase some items and when she called out for him, he did not answer. Upon checking the unlocked house, Mr. Blayney was found with his arms bound behind his back and tape across his mouth. Robbery is believed to have been the cause and earlier this evening the police found some of the items from his shop behind some bushes in the area. 

Three young men living (not native) in the village have been taken into custody by the police and the investigation continues.


Crooked Tree villagers remained in shocked as to why someone would do something like this.

"Be aware every morning that you may not last the day and every evening that you may not last the night."

This is crazy. How the hell police go take vacation and don't have someone to replace him.

Condolences to his family... The news of this senseless murder has saddened the villagers of CT but we must remain strong to overcome this and to look out for each other, our neighbors. God always take care of his own and I believe that Mr. Barry is in a better place with Ms. Molly and Mr. Dan and the other of our relatives and friends that had crossed over.
CT is a small village and we the villagers needs to take control in who is entering and leaving our village. We need to implement some sort of security system or something to make our villagers feel safe.

This is unacceptable in our village. We cannot and must not tolerate these kinds of behavior in our village. We can and must take proactive action to prevent these things repeating themselves. I send my condolences.

Elroy Pinks said...

Thank you for posting this Linda. I totally agree with everyone's feeling, and especially your sentiments Harun! Remember that "when darkness threatens to encroach upon light, it must be pushed back and stamped out immediately, less it engulf it and dwell in its place forever.

OMG! I remember when I was back home living with my grandparents, they used 2 leave their house door open all the time. But now they can't do that. They'll rob ur eye out of ur head, so sad! I personally think that most of the youngsters follow 2 much instead of being a leader nowadays. This just change my mind of ever going back 2 Crooked Tree 2 live.

I hope this open up the eyes of the Gov't and they finally put a police and station back in the village.

Jane Gillett said...

Wow sad to to hear that, I hope they find the person responsible and make a good example out if him/ her. A small village like CT does not need that nonsense.

Verla Kerr-Bidos said...

Additionally, they are lazy scrums who doesn't want to work or even clean their yards!!! Rest in peace

Lisa said...

This is so tragic - and sadly, part of a bigger phenomenon in which retired persons are specifically targeted for having a "fortune". It will negatively affect all those thinking about coming home to retire. Too many horror stories like this one.

Sad to see such evil done to an upstanding member of the community. The gov't should own up to it's core duty; guaranteeing the citizens' right to live in safety! We as citizens should also own up to our civic duty and speak up against crime.

Carla Gillett said...

This is so tragic, he picked our beautiful village of CT to retire and instead he was murdered. We do need a police presence there, this is just not acceptable and could happen again. RIP

Rest in Peace Uncle Barry. Lots of love, memories from your niece Louise.
