It is often times said that there is no greater pain than the agony of losing a child.
This year the mother of Mario Deane is having the worst Christmas in her life as a result of the tragic and untimely death of her son.
Mario Deane was bludgeoned to death earlier this year while in the custody of the Barnett Street Police.
Police officers originally claimed that he had fallen off a bunk but subsequently changed their statement, reporting that Deane was beaten by two inmates while inside a cell.
“He was not there and his place at the Christmas dinner table was just empty. It is just hard. I just try to live one day at a time,” Frazer said in a post by Loop News.
She said the pain was especially hard to bear as Mario was an exceptional cook who, she said, cooked a mean rice and peas. He would also help with chores around the house especially during Christmas, Frazer said.
“I miss more than the rice and peas. I cry every day. Words can’t explain how hard this Christmas was for me and my family,” she also said.
The case involving Marvin Orr and Adrian Morgan, who have been charged with Deane’s murder is scheduled to go before the Montego Bay Resident Magistrate’s Court on January 16, 2015.
