St George family mourns stabbing victim

A Lower Estate, St George, home has been thrown into mourning following the brutal slaying last night of one of their own at the Zanzi Bar Club on Nelson Street, the City.

Forty-three- year old Christopher Callender, who was employed as a part-time bouncer at the Club, was stabbed multiple times about the body and his throat was slit by an unknown assailant while on duty around 11:00 p.m. He was taken to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital (QEH) where he died during surgery.

He leaves behind two sons, 19-year-old Shane Moore and 20-year-old Torian Moore.

Speaking to Barbados TODAY from their Lower Estate Home, their mother, Mary Moore, said: “Everybody has their faults but Christopher was a friendly person.

“I cannot understand why anyone would want to kill him in this brutal way.  This is just a part-time job which he did three nights a week. He really held another job at a printery on Roebuck Street.”

The boys’ aunt, Sandra James who lives at Ashby Alley, the City, said she too, could not understand why Callender met his demise in this way.

Two other men, Peter Jordan of Princess Royal Avenue, Pinelands, St Michael and Rico Eugene of King William Street, the City were also stabbed multiple times.

Reports indicate that Jordan remains in critical condition at the QEH, while Eugene has been treated and discharged.

    Sadly violence like this will never end until the courts hand out life sentences that mean life, not 15 years then free to live your life, life has to mean life with no second chance to ever be free. May he Rest In Peace

      I agree but it’s never going to happen, and I would rather see someone locked away for life no matter who is paying than see them back on the streets and living their life like nothing ever happened

    Here is a good example…thugs will kill even when they have no guns. People kill people how ever they can, guns or no guns it’s still going to happen. Stop blaming guns, take responsibility! May he RIP.

    @ Alex Alleyne: Now why would the leaf on the clothing be of significance in this ordeal?

    There should be a ban on guns and knives–stop and searches should be implemented in public malls and at certain junctions. They that want to see us kill one another are just as guilty as the murderers themselves.

    Every time they hear the crack of the whip
    Their blood run cold
    So to remind them they should never scheme to take
    Another man’s soul.
    Like in Bahamas, Antigua-Barbuda may be it’s time the cat is reinstated in Barbados.
    We have people hands and heads being chopped off in public for assault and robbery by the authorities in Saudi-Arabia, Kuwait, the Emirates etc. And what does the U.K and U.S government do–they kiss the hands and feet of these people.

    Just like how we hearing every day a murder a murder we shud be hearing sentenced to death by Electric chair,gas chamber,lethal injection or hanging why should you take another persons life leave a family to mourn and expect that you should live???and then talking bout human rights?? D person you murder didn’t have a right to life too???

    I do not support the use of marijuana but this man seems to have been a worker who had two jobs and a father to his children. Let us focus on that instead of on a red, gold. and green shirt which seems to be a symbol of Rastafarianism. May his killer be found and may his family be comforted!
