Scores of Mourners Attend Candelight Vigil for Heavenly Terveus

It was a somber evening as scores of family and friends, along with the community of Miami Street gathered on Wednesday night in a candlelight vigil at the scene where Heavenly Turveus was killed.

Four days after her death, a memorial of lit candles and balloons honored the life of the young mother taken so soon.

Pastor Franklyn Lighbourne  of Revival Faith Mission Church said Terveus was a former member of the church’s dance team.

“As she got older, she became distant rom the church and as a result when it was time to get into a relationship, she left off the counsel and advice from the church.”

Fenton Ferguson killed Turveus in the bedroom of her mother’s home, where family members discovered her lifeless body. Ferguson who shot himself during the ordeal, later died in hospital. The couple’s one month old boy was not harmed.

In a moment of silence, cries echoed the night skies as mourners including Englerston Member of Parliament Glenys  Hanna-Martin expressed sadness over the tragedy.

“It’s a feeling of great sadness…When you lose something through violence, it’s different from a normal death.”

“…I would like to know what is it that’s happening with us that we are seeing this type of violent chaos, particularly affecting our young men.”

Hanna-Martin said she will continue to offer her support to the family.
