  1. He might have been tortured to force him to reveal where the money was. Many people in this country believe that any light skinned individual has money. It’s very unfortunate. I hope the criminals will be caught

  2. These are locals who were watching when the garden boy goes away so they can rob the old man. They will be caught.
