WITNESSES to the killing two weeks ago of Princes Town moneylender Kevon Mark are unwilling to tell police what they know although he named his killer before he died.
Police said the relatives of the man who was named had a history of violence and criminal activity.
The suspect was known to notorious criminal Peter Garcia, who was killed on the compound of the Rio Claro Magistrates' Court on October 20, 2009.
Garcia was linked to several killings in Rio Claro between October 2008 and April 2009.
Garcia went into hiding in the Rio Claro forest for several weeks before surrendering to police in May 2009.
He was charged with the murder of businessman and chutney promoter Simboonath Kumar, who was gunned down at his Rio Claro business place on April 18, 2008, and with the attempted murder of Sherwin Wilson, at Agostini Road, Rio Claro.
Garcia was being escorted into the court by police officers when two men dressed as construction workers walked up to him and shot him at close range.
Mark, 26, of King Street, Princes Town, was shot multiple times in the back and left to die in a dirt track in Rio Claro two Saturdays ago.
With a dozen gunshot wounds to the back, he dragged himself to the roadside and shouted out his killer's name.
Mark had gone with a friend to collect money in Rio Claro.
Investigators have ruled out robbery as the motive as $80,000 was found in Mark's pocket.
Police believe the killing was drug-related.
A 26-year-old of Guayaguayare Road is a suspect in the killing.
