- It was about 9:10 a.m. on New Year’s Day when the parents of Antonio Llovet discovered his body, bloodied and shot in the head, lying face-up on his couch. Llovet’s parents, immigrants from Cuba and El Salvador, had crossed the street from their own home in the 2300 block of Dreux Street in Gentilly to the yellow double their son rented from them. Llovet, 28, was waiting tables full-time while pursuing an engineering degree, said Bayona manager Shannon Fristoe. Though he had been working as a busboy at G.W. Fins when he initially applied to work at Bayona a year ago, Fristoe said, she was struck by his intelligence and charm, and so decided to hire him as a server. Susan Spicer, the chef and owner of Bayona, said Llovet’s slaying marked her fourth employee involved in one of the city’s murders over the past year. Another Bayona worker was murdered about a year ago, she said. Two weeks later, a worker fatally shot another employee at her restaurant Mondo in Lakeview.
