“My son Chris, I am going to miss the talks we had and the sense of humor love you son,” Billy Thomas, the known father to Christopher Thomas mourned.
Nile Post looked into Billy Thomas and confirmed him as the registered father to Christopher Thomas according to the USA family tree records.
Another family member identifying herself as Cretia Thomas, a resident of Orlando in Florida also confirmed the death of Duke Thomas.
“In 2021 I lost 7 Family Members.. Including My Son Jaylin. I’m Trying to be strong after that. Now 1/9/22. I lost my Brother Christopher Duke Thomas… Lord, I haven’t healed from my son..Please give me strength.. I just had my last conversation,” she posted and tagged the deceased.
Moments later, another family member named Christopher Mason posted:
“With a heavy heart. Would like to inform many of you that knew my son, Christopher Duke Thomas. He was found dead this morning. Please keep me my family and his girlfriend, along with newborn baby in prayer. Such a hard day… Rest in Jesus son.”
Duke Thomas wedded Princess Komuntale in November 2012, but hardly a year later, the two broke up bitterly and the spills of their marriage were splashed on social media with the two estranged lovers counter-accusing each other of infidelity.
It took the intervention of Tooro Kingdom officials to pluck Duke Thomas off Facebook with the insistence that he should respect the royal family he had found himself married into and his own family.
On her part, Komuntale penned down a long story detailing the rocky areas of their relationship and the eventual reason she pulled the trigger to let it die.
In her final words about the Duke, the princess said:
I loved my husband and respected him and our marriage vows until the end and it saddens to announce that our marriage has ended. I plan to move forward with my life where I am not abused everyday. I want to take this opportunity to thank all those who have stood by me in this challenging period. I am eternally grateful for your support and encouragement. I am especially humbled and heartened by my fellow women who have endured domestic abuse and have reached out to me and supported me in the last week.This painful ordeal has taught me many important life lessons. First, that sheer one-sided love is not sufficient for a life-long relationship. Secondly, that one ought to have exceptional judgement of character before entering a life-long commitment. This comes with long-term courtship. And third, love should not hurt, abuse, or torment.
