“Mi would want to send him off in chariot and with the family all in limousine. But we can’t afford it,” Duppy Film’s aunt, Madge-Marie Perry told the Star.
They also reflected on what turned their beloved son into the monster who haunted Jamaica for more than two years.
Perry said the speech impediment her nephew had as boy made him an outcast in the community which eventually lead to him becoming a criminal.
“He was just one of those kids who always getting picked on. Him did stamma (stutter), (he was) small and couldn’t fight so they used to beat him up a lot,” she recounted. “I remember one time him gamble and win and them beat him up and take him money.”
She said her nephew promised that “when him grow big him ago kill them.” While there is no certainty that Duppy Film got even with those who mocked and teased him as boy, he certainly became the killer he promised to become.
