“We are bad, but we must continue struggling with the help of God,” Geovani told in Spanish, adding that the death was gang-related.

The central American country “is very dangerous,” he revealed.

“My mother is very sad,” he said.

As previously reported, pregnant Jill, 26, and Derick, 28, fled the country with their 2-year-old toddler, Israel, just days after the murder. They are now in their native Arkansas, awaiting 19-year-old sister Joy Anna’s upcoming wedding.
