The aunt of the 26-year-old aspiring model and filmmaker who was murdered in Jamaica two months ago has revealed she has receiving chilling phone calls from the victim’s cell phone.
On Sunday night, Peggy Brunner was getting ready for dinner when her phone rang. When she looked at the screen to read the caller ID she saw her niece’s name, Desi. Brunner’s heart stopped.
“I got goosebumps from my head to my toes,” Brunner told the New York Daily News.
Desi is short for Desiree Gibbon, the Queens, New York, native who was found on the Jamaican countryside with her throat slashed. Gibbon’s phone was never found and her murderer is still on the loose.
When Brunner answered the phone, she was met by silence. Six hours later, Brunner missed a second called from Desi’s number.
Brunner tried to call back, yet heard a message telling her the phone is out of service. These odd calls have been an additional frustration to the family, who feels not enough has been done in regard to Desi’s murder.
“There are no answers,” Gibbon’s mother, Andrea Cali-Gibbon, told the Daily News. “You feel like they’re not doing anything at all.”
Desiree Gibbon’s body was discovered in the bushes along a local road in St. James Parish on Nov. 26. Her throat was slit and she had extreme bruising on her torso, legs, and wrists.
