HOPE ESTATE, Sint Maarten — Franklin “Franky” Brunache was shot in cold blood late Tuesday evening by unknown assailant (s) in front of his home located in Hope Estate.
Police arrived on the scene after 11:00pm when they found the young man on the driveway near the driver’s side in a black SUV.
Police Chief Carl John and a Prosecutor were on scene late on Tuesday as investigators were speaking to any possible witnesses trying to piece together what took place. Forensic officers also bagged and tagged any possible evidence found at the man’s home.
As the investigation continues, it is still too early to speculate on the reason for the execution style shooting. Police however can suspect that the multiple gunshot holes found on the vehicle caused the victim’s immediate death.
Police spokesman Chief Inspector Ricardo Henson is calling on any person in the community that might have information about the brutal murder to call 911.
