Sadly, a single stab wound to the left side of his neck abruptly ended the 26-year old’s life on Saturday, June 25, at Heritage Square.

SEARCHLIGHT understands that in the wee hours of June 25, Chewitt, a DVD vendor of Belair, was allegedly involved in an altercation with another, which eventually led to his demise.

The deceased’s father, Cleve Chewitt told SEARCHLIGHT that a week before his son met his death, they had a long conversation in front of The Bank of St Vincent and the Grenadines, formerly the National Commercial Bank.

“He was saying to me that he was into music and told me that he wrote a few soca songs but it was too late to release them,” Chewitt said.

He described his son as a “very quiet” individual who was not easily provoked.

“You had to push him to an extent where he would retaliate. He was not a fighter; he would prefer to walk away from you, than to pick a fight with you,” Chewitt added.

A dejected Chewitt said it was hard to put in words, the way he feels about losing his first child.

The father of three said, “He is my first son and he and I were very close, so I feel a great sense of loss where he is concerned,” Chewitt said.

Sister, Tekisha Chewitt said she was at Mario’s Pizza on Friday, June 24, when her brother came there. “I asked him how was business and he said it was slow, so I told him people studying Carnival, so after Carnival things go pick up,” she related.

Tekisha said while waiting on her order, Clevedon said, “You are my best sister.” That was the last time she spoke to her brother or saw him alive.

Meanwhile, 22-year-old Tyson Spencer, an unemployed resident of Green Hill has been remanded in custody, charged with the murder of Clevedon. He appeared at the Serious Offences Court on Wednesday this week.

The case was adjourned to October 26, 2011 for hearing. (KW)
