Today I saw two news articles, one in the Express and the other in the Newday. The level of professionalism of some media houses is very poor. According to the Express, this boy was released from the hospital:
Skinner, who lives with his family at Perseverance Road, Maraval, was stabbed multiple times about the body along North Coast Road, Maraval. He has since been released from hospital.
The Newsday by the other hand:
TWO MEN have been arrested in connection with the stabbing death of a teenaged Argentine national who was killed 16 days ago. Gonzalo Skinner, 17, was stabbed over 20 times on April 9 and left for dead along the North Coast Road. Source 1

Cagel, thanks for your thoughts. I was shocked and quite disturbed and I still feeling that way.
As an update on this case, the boy still in the hospital in critical condition and apparently the attack is the result of a previous argument.
THE 17-YEAR-OLD Argentinian national who was stabbed multiple times on Tuesday night is still in critical condition at hospital.
Yesterday, police said they have received information that [b]the motive behind the stabbing of Gonzalo Skinner was an argument he had with a group of men from whom he had earlier made a purchase.[b]
Officers said it was around 7.30 p.m. That Skinner, of Perseverance Road, Maraval, was driving along North Coast Road, when the path of his black Nissan Hilux van was cut off by the men who were driving another vehicle.
The men, police said, hijacked Skinner's van and bundled him into the back seat before driving off. Source 5

I saw this on the internet earlier on and I immediately thought about Pandora and how she must be feeling. This is horrible. People can be so evil these days. Why did they have to stab the boy so brutally?

Gonzalo Skinner Stabbed Twenty Times
AN ARGENTINIAN teenager is fighting for his life at Eric Williams Medical Sciences Complex in Mt Hope after he was stabbed close to 20 times about the body when he was abducted on Tuesday night.
After being stabbed, Gonzalo Skinner, 17, was dumped at the side of the road by his assailants, who then escaped in his Toyota Hilux van, said police.
Up to last night he was listed in a critical condition.
Investigators said at around 7.30 p.m., several motorists saw the black Hilux stop along North Coast Road before the occupants of the van dumped Skinner at the side of the roadway.
They then sped off in the direction of Maraval, said police.
According to officers, when they went to the scene, Skinner, who had been living at Perseverance Road, Maraval, with his family for the past few years, managed to inform them of how the incident took place.
Police said they were told by Skinner that he was driving along the road when the men, who were in another vehicle, cut off his path and hijacked his van. Source 8
