Residents of Corner West Community, a shanty town in the Borough of New Kru Town on Bushrod Island grappling over news of the discovery of the decomposed body of a 40-year-oldman identified as Suku Diggs in his bedroom.
Eyewitnesses told The New Dawn that the deceased was found dead in his bedroom with his forehead resting in a breaking plate with accessories usually used by cocaine addicts in the community.
They disclosed that the late Diggs, a former student of the night session of the New Kru Town Junior High School, had been a strong addict for several years prior to his demise.
According to them, they have repeatedly advised the deceased to desist the habit, but he allegedly refused to listen up to his sudden death.
Sources maintained that because of his addiction to dangerous substances, the fiancée of the late Diggs quitted their relationship. The deceased, who was a fisherman, would use proceeds generated from selling his catch to purchase the drug for consumption.
Residents detailed that he was also a footballer, who played for several local teams in the area, noting that he would not take in any food except infusing it into his body the substance. They observed that the usage of the drug is something that has engulfed the community, expressing fear for young people there, whom if not careful, could similarly begin taking in crack. Meanwhile, the remains of the late Suku Diggs has since been interred.
