Golden Shrine to "Deek"

This unusual shrine in the 5400 block of Georgia Ave NW, Washington DC, is to "Deek"- who was found dead in his building by neighbors. He was "artistic"- and also a native Trinidadian. I spoke for some time to two neighbors who knew him- neither seemed to know his full name, just what he was called on the block. The cause of his death is unknown, The shrine was built by his family.
