Killer boyfriend was making plans to escape to French Guiana
Shaquawn Alleyne, the 21-year-old main suspect in the murder of his fiancé, 20-year-old Shonnette Dover, reached out to a friend in French Guiana, seeking help to flee the country, days after Dover was reported “missing.”
Now that Dover’s decomposed body was found buried behind the Canvas City, Wismar, Linden house she shared with Alleyne, several voice recordings have surfaced with him in a desperate plea for help to escape to French Guiana.
The News Room made contact with the friend in French Guiana on Saturday, who confirmed the authenticity of the voice recordings. The friend, who prefers to remain anonymous, told the News Room that Alleyne again made contact with him on Thursday, April 29 – hours before Dover’s body was dug up in the shallow grave.
In that recent conversation, the friend told him he was unable to make arrangements for him to flee Guyana given that all the borders are closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
In the voice recordings, the friend repeatedly advised Alleyne against fleeing his homeland, noting that he would be placed on a wanted list and Interpol would be on the lookout for him.
However, Alleyne was adamant about leaving, and begged the friend to “have my back” whenever he arrives in French Guiana.
In the recordings, Alleyne even threatened to kill himself if he does not get to leave the country.
“Ah done mek up meh mind and tell yuh wah I want do. Support me nah man? Me ain’t leff nothing in Guyana; me ain’t gat no chick or child, she (Dover) cud just pick up so and roll and leff everything? Wah is it?
“Me ain’t able deal with the stress hay. Yuh rather hear I deh over here and kill me f&*king self? Cuz the stress too much and ah can’t tek it no mo? Listen to meh and wuk with meh nah man?” Alleyne reportedly said in the recordings.
The murder suspect reportedly told the friend that the police and Dover’s family are targeting him.
“The police trying to F**&k round me right now. I is gah be going to the station every Wednesday and Friday…and it looking bad buddy…I gon leff every f&*king thing behind buddy…and just roll out and that is wah I want do.
“Everybody trying fuh f&*k round me; the girl cousins done trying fuh f&*k round me saying how I mek the girl go away. I just wan go away and start life brand new so that is why I just pushing so bad to roll out and leff everything.”
Alleyne further noted in the voice recordings that no one knows his plans to leave Guyana except the friend.
“I done think it over. Me ain’t wan no girl, me ain’t want be in no mo relationship and them thing. I feel I want go more into, you know, being with guys and them thing. Me ain’t want get no relationship with no girl; I want try something new.
“And I can’t try something new in Guyana buddy…caz you know, I can’t be with no man around me family, certain people and me friend them. So that is why I want roll,” Alleyne reportedly told the friend in French Guiana.
He continued to beg the friend for his help.
“All I want you gimme the strength once I meet over deh. I gah meh lil money, I gon try meh best once I meet ova deh. Dah is all I asking you buddy, at least I come ova deh, come by you and what’s not.
“I geh trade budday. I got nuff trade. I is nah no dunce, I could learn the language. I just want ease me head, get sometime for meself, choose the life I want choose and then after that now, I gon decide to mek contact with me family.”
Police in Guyana have since issued a wanted bulletin for Alleyne, who remains in hiding. His father and Dover’s 15-year-old sister also remain in police custody over their involvement in the gruesome murder.
The 15-year-old sister on Thursday night confessed to the police that she saw when Alleyne shot and killed her on the night of April 3 and then later buried her in the backyard of his house.
The child revealed that on the night the victim went ‘missing’, Alleyne was oiling “his brownish gun in the sister’s living room.” He then pointed the gun at Dover, who told him “he like play and he should put away that thing.”
The 15-year-old further revealed that she then heard a sound like a squib and Alleyne said: “oh shoots, I shoot that girl.”
According to the child, she saw her sister’s mouth open and blood on her face. She claimed she told Alleyne they should take her sister to the hospital but he said “no she dead already.”
Dover’s family and friends have been frantically searching for her since she disappeared on April 3. She was a bartender at a sports bar at Greenheart Street, McKenzie. Alleyne was also part of several search parties for Dover and even pleaded on social media for her to return home.
