The family of Anthony Moore says he deserved better than being hit and left to die on the side of the road. Mr. Moore was struck from his bicycle and killed while out for a ride Saturday morning along Hirst Road.
Those who knew him well affectionately called him Tony. His sister Nicola Moore-Gothar says he didn’t deserve to be left for dead.
She told Cayman 27, “He didn’t deserve to die by himself on the side of the road. He didn’t deserve to be just left there like he didn’t matter.” She added this wasn’t the first time he had been struck from his bike, “He has been hit off so many times and no one ever stops, and it’s just that he didn’t make it this time.”
His death comes as an added burned to the family. Only last week Saturday (April 23), Tony’s father passed away suddenly. So now the family must face two deaths, a father and son, a week apart from each other. For them there are no words to describe the loss.
Mrs. Moore-Gothar said, “I feel really bad for my mom, because she was married to my dad for 44 years this year and Tony was so good because he was here everyday last week supporting mom.”
Details are few and with little to go by, they are asking for help to find the person who left Tony dying on the roadside. Their message to the driver is a simple one.
She said,”Put themselves in our position, how would they feel if their loved one was hit and no one stopped and left them to die by themselves? Put themselves in our position, and ask how they would feel; or even if it happened to them what would their family feel, and what their family would want?”
For now all they want are answers to help them reach closure. Anyone with information can contact the George Town Police Station at 949-4222 or leave and anonymous tip at 800-TIPS (8477).
