At 9:45 p.m. on Nov. 22, 2017, Franklin Edison Penn, 41, Ramona Moses, and her 11-year-old daughter Trinity Azaria Moses were driving along the Sir Francis Drake Highway at West End in a white Suzuki XL7 when unknown assailants opened fire on the vehicle.

Mr. Penn and Trinity died while being transported to the hospital, while Ms. Moses survived the attack.

Two years later, detectives from the Major Crime Investigations Team are still seeking assistance in identifying the shooters, according to a police press release, which also included statements issued on behalf of the victims’ families.

“As the family of Trinity Moses, we would like to thank everyone who helped and showed support to us in our time of grief,” one of the statements read. “We are now pleading to the public to help us by coming forward with any information that can assist.”

Detectives believe community members have crucial information that could assist in identifying the perpetrators and bringing some closure to the grieving families.

Reward still on offer

Police are offering a reward of $100,000 to anyone with information leading to the identification and charge of those responsible for the murders of Mr. Penn and Trinity.

Police first offered this reward, which still stands, in 2018.

Numbers to call

Anyone with information relating to the crimes is urged to contact Detective Inspector Vernon Larocque at 368-9809 or 368-5682.

Last week’s release also included a statement from Mr. Penn’s family, which stated, “We plead with anyone who may have any knowledge surrounding the death of our brother to please come forward.”
