Natalie Leon

The criminals who shot and killed security guard Natalie Shelly Ann Leon, escaped away with nothing.

After shooting Leon, 43, on the Malabar Main Road on November 1, the suspects left with transaction receipts belonging to the Unit Trust Corporation. The receipts are worthless.

Leon was one of three guard attacked. A second guard, a male, was also shot but survived. A third guard escaped injury.

Leon died at the Mt Hope Hospital on Thursday.

Leon’s funeral will be held today at Allen’s Funeral Home, Guaico Sangre Grande from noon.

The Point Fortin-born veteran soca performer secured his fourth overall ISM title and second power soca category win, with an emphatic performance of his Road March contending collaboration with Kees Dieffenthaller — “Stage Gone Bad” — at the Queen’s Park Savannah in Port of Spain.
