He was retrieved by his uncle and wife.

It is reported that after being rescued, Trevor attacked his mother again who rushed to her bedroom and locked herself inside together with her daughter-in-law.

Trevor went to the kitchen, took a rope and tried to hang himself, but was restrained by his uncle who then left with his father and friend.

At around 11:40pm, Trevor’s wife went outside and found his body hanging from a rope on the veranda.
