Residents of Sea Lots, including relatives of Akani "Dole" Adams, are seeking legal advice to their next move in an attempt to get justice for Adams who was killed by police two weeks ago.
Speaking with Guardian Media, a resident who wished not to be identified, said many of them are fearful to even challenge the police.
Maybe that's one of the reasons Adams' family have not yet gone to the Police Complaints Authority's head David West to give their statements.
"There were more than eight witnesses there when the police came and did what they had to do. There is even footage as there's a camera out by the jetty (it's alleged). So the truth is out there but we are very afraid to come forward, " the resident said.
"Right now the attorneys are preparing their documents and whatever else they need, " he added.
Just last week, police released a Sea Lots businessman who was detained for questioning into the murder of the five Carli Bay fishermen who were beaten and thrown overboard on July 22.
Adams' relatives questioned why police detained the businessman when initial reports claimed that Adams was the main suspect in the fishermen murders.
Head of the Police Complaints Autjority David West confirmed that an investigation has been launched into the circumstances surrounding Adams' death but added that his team of investigators who have already made contact with Adams' mother is waiting on her to come into the PCA's office to give an official statement.
Earlier this month, 27-year-old Kareem Stanisclaus was charged with the murders of fishermen Hemraj Sooknanan,18, Brandon Kissoon, 21, Shiva Ramdeo,27 Anand Rampersad,39 and Leslie De Boulet. It was alleged he along with other people murdered the fishermen.
Stanisclaus was also charged with the attempted murder of Brian Seemungal and Robbie Jaggernauth and remanded in custody.
He was also jointly charged with six counts of robbery with violence along with Shaquille Roberts, and two women- Mya Bowrin and Iyola John. Both women were granted $100,000 bail when they appeared in court last week, while Roberts was remanded in custody pending tracing of his criminal records.
