According to family sources, the candle light vigil for Otto will see attendees walk from the St Mary’s Playground to the Maynard’s Park in Cayon, where a small ceremony will take place.
Otto was shot and killed on Sunday 16th August 2011 between 8:30pm-9:30pm in Cayon. It was reported that he was amongst two friends walking from a football match.
He was the twenty-fourth (24th) individual to have lost his life to gunmen in St Kitts and Nevis.
Some members of the general public are however, expressing hope that there will be heavy security presence on the evening of the service.
These concerns have been influenced by what transpired on Thursday 18th August, 2011 when a gunman shot and killed Leon Thompson, hours after a similar service was held for yet another shooting victim, David Thomas of Buckley’s.
Family members of the late Karando Otto have been expressing their gratitude to the general public for the many kind words that have been extended over these dark days of their loss.
