His body was found just before 6:00 am on Tuesday in the backseat of a vehicle which was discovered abandoned near a bridge along a roadway in the community.

He had been shot multiple times.

Piango, the son of businessman Raul Joseph, escaped a shooting incident in Diego Martin in November 2017 which resulted in the death of 20-year-old Abraham Simpson. His stepmother, Andrea Edwards had been shot and killed at their Carenage home in August 2017 during a home invasion, which left his father partially paralysed.

Joseph was stabbed and killed in a subsequent attack on September 19, 2017, in another home invasion. 

More on this as it becomes available.
