Shadow robbed of his SUV

Tuesday, December 31, 2013

Veteran calypsonian Shadow was robbed of his SUV and shot at by robbers at his Mt Hope home on Sunday.  A still shaken Shadow, whose name is Winston Bailey, told the T&T Guardian his Toyota Rav 4, PCT 9861, was stolen by thieves who seemed to have been lying in wait outside his house. In a phone interview yesterday, Bailey said: “I was just coming outside and he jump in the car and drive off. I went in the yard and somebody rushed past me and jump in the car and lock the door and I tried to lock the gate. I just want it back.”


Shadow said amidst the confusion in trying to ensure the thief did not escape with his vehicle he heard gunfire. He added: “I am glad to be alive. I heard shots fired and am lucky to be here. There is plenty confusion and crazy thing. “My car gone and I can’t get it back. I hear (makes noises) all over the place and moved out the way.” 


Shadow is in the midst of preparations for next year’s Carnival season. He won the Road March in 1974 and 2001 with Bassman and Stranger respectively and the Calypso Monarch in 2000 with What’s Wrong With Me and Scratch Meh Back. He also won the International Soca Monarch with Stranger in 2001. Shadow is also the recipient of the Humming Bird Medal (Silver) in 2003. Anyone who knows the whereabouts of the vehicle can contact 555-800-TIPS or the nearest police station.
