Entertainers’ mother murdered in Manchester
Residents of Blenheim in Manchester say they have been left in a state of confusion and sadness since the gruesome killing of 54-year-old Lorna Lake, a farmer from the community.
Lake, who was also the mother of popular Youtuber and up-and-coming artiste Nkyle, and vloggers Twi and Vinch, was found in bushes near the home she shared with her common-law husband following her abduction last Friday night.
The reports are that at about 9 p.m. last Friday, the couple was at home when a robber entered their one-bedroom home demanding money. Upon realising that the couple had no money to give, the robber took them outside and tied them up in nearby bushes where Lake's common-law husband was brutally beaten.
According to reports, the robber, who thought Lake's partner had died after he fell to the ground, took her to another area in nearby bushes.
Lake's bruised body was later found by the police face down, after the police were alerted about her abduction. She was taken to the hospital , where she was pronounced dead.
"The lady was such a nice woman. She is originally from Spaldings, I hear, but she came to live here about seven years ago, and the community warm up to her and accept her like she is from the area. If you ever hear that she and anybody in any disagreement the person would be telling you a lie. If she pass you 10 times for the day, she would greet you and she was always pleasant," said one resident.
Another resident told THE STAR that she is confused as to why anybody would want to rob the couple as they were simply trying to make ends meet.
"They don't have it. They do their little farming and sell. It was the same day that them kill her she passed through the area selling corn. I don't know why they did that to her, she never deserved that, and things are just not adding up," the resident said.
The police say no motive has yet been established for the killing.
Meanwhile, Lake's son, Vinch, in a video uploaded on the YouTube channel VINCH & ROSH, said that he has been gutted by his mother's murder.
"My mother death kinda change up my concept of life... My mother nuh do nothing fi really deserve them death yah. She go out very embarrassing ... Me mother naked, face bruise up and them pictures deh all over the Internet, so just imagine what we a go through," he said.
He added: "...We live in a savage world, people evil, people do evil stuff. Me ask me brother dem why God make my mother dead dem way yah.... My mother call me everyday and say, yow me pray fi unuh, and God know my mother is a clean heart person."
