Police said three persons are currently in custody assisting with investigations surrounding the death of a British national vacationing in Saint Lucia.

In a press release received by our newsroom late Saturday, the police disclosed details about the incident in which 62-year-old Roger Pratt was killed and his wife, Margaret Pratt, was injured.

The Major Crimes Unit of the Royal Saint Lucia Police Force is investigating the case.

According to the police, “About midnight on Friday, January 17, 2014, officers attached to the Vieux Fort Police Station responded to a report of robbery on a vessel named “Magnetic Attraction” which was berthed at the Seaport in Vieux Fort.

“On arrival, the officers received information that three armed men had boarded the vessel, attacked and injured the occupants before they fled. At the time of the incident, the vessel was occupied by 60-year-old Margaret Pratt and her 62-year-old husband, Roger Pratt.

“Within minutes of the robbers fleeing, Margaret went in search of her husband and found him floating in the nearby waters. Roger was retrieved and transported to St. Jude Hospital via ambulance along with his wife. He was pronounced dead on arrival while Margaret was treated and discharged.

“A post mortem examination has been scheduled for Monday, January 20, 2014.”

  1. I've traveled to many islands in the Caribbean and was so excited about upcoming trip to St. Lucia as we've never been before. Reading the the news online makes me sad for the people of St. Lucia. We are canceling our trip and going to Aruba, where we've always felt safe. Things are different when you travel in your wild 20's verses when you're wiser and traveling with your family, including young children. I hope that the island manages combat local crime soon or else the people will continue to suffer from lost tourism dollars.

  2. I understand there is violence all over the world and it can be dangerous to go even outside your own house, but There are usually around 50 murders each year in St Lucia ,amazing for a small island population of 160,000 people, i know of several armed robberies in and around Rodney Bay area, there seems to be a gang culture there with use of guns normal life ,it seems that armed robbery is of very little importance to local police. so be very careful if you visit, there was another tourist clubbed to death walking along the beach in Vieux Fort last year, stay away from this port .
    Every tourist is told not to leave there resort due to possibilities of violence and robbery against them especially at night. Remember the tourist bus with cruise passengers who where stopped and robbed in broad daylight a few months ago, what ever happenend to those criminals?. The worlds best police should come here and teach the local force how to find these violent criminals and prosecute to the fullest before it gets worse as it will.

  3. Since when NTN covers homicide news. It was pathetic to hear a NTN reporter hound the poor lady down just to clear the air on the customs/immigration matter and to say how safe they felt whilst in St. Lucia. Obviously that is of no consequence now.

    Grossly insensitive as it appears that in the lady's grief that was all NTN was after - damage control

  4. Stop all the talking about jobs, i sadly believe a lot of people are simply to lazy here. I wanted people to work on our yacht last week, they came 2 days late. The same happened today, where i again made an appointment with a local guy earning 250 $ for a days work on my boat. He shoved up 6 hours late this afternoon, I mean WTF is wrong with you guys!!! We will leave, and never come back! Maybe some day you will understand that your country is dependant on tourism!

  6. Been to St Lucia twice, second time not by choice! The tourism board has and still does its job well selling the idylic scene of a beautiful island. The real picture however is very different and its definately not nice! This incident has not tainted the reputation of St Lucia alone. Safety questions have been raised many many times over. This time things have come to a head and rightly so become headline UK news. YES it absolutely will make people think twice and potentially go elsewhere. Repeatedly its being stated here that crime is usually local versus local, it is all unacceptable! Clean up your act St Lucia!!

  7. Its been a tragic problem over the past years with the crime rate. Yes the government needs to enforce more measures in place for crime rate but on the other hand the muder's and armed men wearing mask uall really need to get a life and stop robbing people! Its true st lucia has no jobs but there are better things to do rather than killing people and mad head u don't blame the governmdt for ur 3 children.

  8. Very sad for the family but what are the St Lucian Government going to do about this crime level? Mr PM - get your head out of the sand. Your Minister of Tourism - suggest that you do not let him speak to the Press. The world's Press are focused on St Lucia. You also need to remember that this family is NOT the only family that has had a family member murdered in St Lucia. Trust that because the world is watching they will not get pushed to the top and others like us, still wait for justice?

  10. We have a reactive Police force and not proactive. A force that is being ran like the 1950s. We have outdated laws and then we have Judges who look like they liming with them criminals with those weak sentences i see happening. When a man convicted of murder spends under 10 years in prison? when a man caught with an illegal firearm is fined $3,000 EC. WHen those guys are given bail, if they in the drug trade not go back and do the same thing? We have an under funded crime lab, under funded and under train CSI unit, no gang unit. The list goes on. Police don't have enough jeeps to respond to calls. No speed radars, No breathalyzer test Boy St. Lucia is a mess.

  11. Here we go with the politics again. When Valarie Lord was murdered,when Poor young Tricia was murdered,when shaka flew his woman neck,when 50 ppl were murdered in one year and much more crimes were commited uwp was in power was that their fault. Ofcourse not put the blame where it is suppose to go,on the assholes who have a cold heart, who is selfless,worthless no love,no respect and definitely no fear of God. The criminals bastards. America blames single parents missing dads and st.lucian blames the government. Things are rough everywhere. Jobs are hard to get. America that prints its own money is in a financial crisis imagine us. So instead of blaming the government lets go down on our knees and pray. Take our kids to .church. Lets try to take these crimes as life lessons to teach our kids. Pls Lucians. If we are bashing our own country how do we not expect others to do it.

      • Excuse me. I have yet to see a police officer terrorize the street with any big gun. What I see is criminals shooting at people indiscriminately even after police officers, making comments like they having bigger and badder guns than the police and they ready for war. I rather see the police with those big guns. I know they answer to somebody unlike those criminals we have out there. I rather they have it and don't need it than they need it and don't have it

    • What do think of the PM building a 4 lane road the for the Shanty town (Bruceville)people who live a flood prone area,then feel sorry for them every-time the place is flooded and they looses everything. Yes a 4 lane road about 200yds long.

      The standard VAT rate in wales is 20% and you refer to 15% as "extortionate". Perhaps you should concern yourself with your "oppressive" government.

  16. I dont know what the hell is going on in my beautiful island. But what i know for sure when a visitor is murdered on our shores it is the bussiness of all St. Lucian to voice our concern of the bad press we are getting the world over. Where do we go from here? what can we do as a nation to curb all the killings chopping and stealing going on our island. This problem is not a red, yellow or whatever color its not uwp/ slp/ lmp problem its a St. Lucian problem. Now as a nation we ALL must stand against all the violance going on in Helen. We need to have longer jail time for these thrugs who thinks that people owe them something. Then bring back the death penalty. One more thing thing the legal system in St. Lucia is such a joke its not funny. Its 2014 and we are so backward in everything. why on earth wr cant keep up with mordern technolgy.

    • How should we start? Ask the criminal to give us a chance, like the PM once did? I am wondering as a country or a community what can we possibly do without getting ourselves, as individuals, in trouble. This is how bad it has become.

  17. I have taken my family to St Lucia twice, last staying at The Jalousie Hilton (Gone now I understand). We won't come back, it is not just this report but the continual reports of lack of safety for tourists. The world is a big place and the people of St Lucia should know that tourism is the key to their prosperity and they need to get their politicians to make sure that these thighs are not only sought out but ostracised by their own community. The need to learn something from the Bahamas, the people in the Bahamas are probably the friendliest people I have ever met and have not once felt intimidated.

  18. Currently in SV, due to leave for St Lucia on Tuesday, as we need spares and much else besides. Now? We might bypass and carry on up the chain? But that serves the murderers, and makes the situation worse. But it is with sadness and trepidation we come to St Lucia, with the sole hope that it encourages others that in time they may instead come with hope and happiness. There is none of this on board at this desperate time.

    • Then do us all a favour ole chap.Go about your way and stop complaining about St Lucia. There are more murders being committed in Britain against Black people than vice versa over here.
      Who gives a toss if you are a Brit? All you do is plunder and pilfer what is not yours. -- you band of bandits. St Lucia does not need people like you. Talking about London bridge is falling down falling down...We don't need your pity. Go wallow in your own crap.

      Typical British, always want people to know that they are Brits. Who gives a monkeys? If you have nothing good to say about St Lucia then don't say anything mate.The streets of Britain are much meaner than that of St Lucia.Go remove the filth from your criminal society before you can lecture us on anything.
      Britain is a criminal society against the poor and the oppressed. You lot have plundered so many lands and committed so many atrocities. Get A grip ole chap!!!

      • Gwen Peemah you sound like a racist, and not very educated either if you think you will be fine without the 75% that tourists contribute to your economy.

        • No country can be fully dependant on tourism sir.The Caribbean including St Lucia need to diversify. The average man does not benefit much from tourism. Agriculture is the mainstay of the Lucian economy and employs more people than tourism.There is also banking and manufacturing which contributes quite significantly towards the economy.

          Racism does not come into the equation for me old chap. I am simply telling it like it is.It's up to you how you interpret what is being written here in your lugubrious little world.

          The hotels are not owned by St lucians and most of the tourist dollar stays abroad. Have you heard of all inclusive? Perhaps you need to educate yourself before you have a go.Before you criticize you must realise...
          Get a grip ole chap!!!

          • The only reason tourism isn't benefitting the local community as much as it could is because people are too afraid to wander around the local communities, this is why they go all inclusive and stay within the hotel grounds.

Ppl keep saying no jobs i don't think thats the problem. I think its those who want money but don't want to work for it. I kno lots of ppl who are out of a job but don't rob n kill to get money. Ppl lets pray for our beautiful island. My kids hear about the violence and are afraid to visit my homeland it's so sad.

  23. it is sad what has happened, yet the world is in crisis not just st.lucia. It is unfortunate for all the lost of lives everywhere, and the total disregard for it. St. Lucia is my home I lived there for 28 years of my life, there have been lots of changes because ppl have been using our country as a port to bring in all sorts of things and people. There is too much undercover operations going on with the biggers who should be protecting us all. Now to make it clear if other tourists want to stop coming or judge us based on that let them. Cuz I now reside in the uk and major crimes happen everyday including racial discrimination. I am not condoning what has taken place but we are being a bit bias if u ask me!

  24. I live in Vieux Fort and I can tell you the thugs have taken over. In my opinion, if the PM does his visit on a Wednesday and feels the country is safe then do so without the bodyguards. Sir you always have not one but two police officer escort you in your own constituency, what about the other residents who does not have the tax payers purse to pay for the basic light bulb to give them a false hope of security. You need to step down to our level and see what we Are feeling.

    Today Vieux Fort is littered with thugs and young ones at that. They ride their bicycles at nights and on pedestrian crossing while old folks are run over.

    They gamble on the street corners. Sleep all day and act at nights. This crime is a reflection of us the adults who have failed the youths. They have loads on energy and have nowhere to direct it positively.

    Let's invest in the young people because they will come back and harm us as you see today. Parents stop putting your hands in fire for your kids. Politicians stop fooling the people and do what you are hired for.

    There are no succession planning
    Major disconnect among schools, church and parents
    We are afraid to speak out because others associated with party

This is very sad news for both the family and for St Lucians who want to keep St Lucia safe. The government need to step in and implement measures for gun control.

I often read the Caribbean papers and also known people who said when they went to leave in the Caribbean they were robe an their partner has been kill whilst in their home an has now sold their home an return. It is disgusting the people who did it might not be from st lucia who ever it is they should throw the key away. The country reputation is on

  33. How in the world do you blame the government for crime. Did they do the robbery? If you can't find a job you are one millions in this world not only St.lucia. Stop looking for excuses for nonsense! Be a part of the solution and not the problem. Instead of sitting down home waiting on someone to call u go look for WORK.. And if u can't find come up with your own LEGAL hustle... Start from scratch..., make something for yourself... Many rich people that you see accomplished they started from the bottom... Blood sweat and tears... Grown people stop being a part of the problem! Raise your kids to be better adults..set good examples... And so making excuses for violence! SMH!

  34. It's very disturbing with the crime rate on the island. I'am from VF and it discourages me that when and if I visit my home town that I have to be aware that my safety is no longer.. It's time that these criminals are removed out of the public and deem fit where they belong.Its too many murders and the system is not in place to protect its citizens and tourist.. It saddens me that our beautiful island that was once a safe heaven is no longer.

  35. I am sorry to hear this sad news.
    I think anywhere in the world carries a risk of robbery these days, from St Lucia, to New York, to the centre of London.
    Let them take your possessions, it is not worth your life to fight that.
    I generally stay on the resort when I visit, but I have made some good friends amongst the hotel's staff, and I believe St Lucians are warm and lovely people.
    Rest assured, this one incident will not have a major impact on your British tourist visitors, in my opinion.
    But also, I agree, crime needs to be punished severely, we have the same problem in the UK, so let us hope the guilty are caught and they throw away the key.
    best wishes to all of you.
    Back in April!

    • The fact is this is not just one incident, it is one of many violent cases in a very short period of time. This is not the first time St Lucia has been in the UK news recently but it is the first time it has made headline news and all for the wrong reasons. Very sad. But you stay in your resort for a reason and that alone makes for a very blinkered picture of a place. Don't you ever want to go out, get a feel for the real place and people? Of course your hotel staff will be lovely, they are relying on your tips!! Your tourist dollar will not help the local economy or people if you don't go out. And, a bigger picture here, tourism is not exclusive to resort stays alone! Think yachts, cruise ships etc.....

  41. I visited St. Lucia in 1989 and stayed for 9 months with family. While I was there, there was one major crime... One... Because, as they say, life happens, (children, work, etc.) I have not been back since. I heard about the British man and pulled up stlucianewsonline.com and was horrified to see what had happened to my sweet, beautiful little island that I loved so much? What in the world changed so drastically between 1989 and now to cause this?

  42. Congratulations Government of St. Lucia!! You have managed to make the front page of BBC News on the smart phone edition. For a long time, locals and those in the Diaspora have been screaming for you take steps to curb the level of crime. Alas! You never attached the level of importance it deserved. Idiots! You are losing your customers. In typical fashion, you have addressed the crime problem in a typical laissez-faire attitude that is typical on the island.
    Tourism is your bread and butter…let’s not forget that fact. Treat the worsening crime situation as if someone were attempting to steal your livelihood. Give it urgency. If any government of St. Lucia needs help in planning and execution, I am sure those in the Diaspora will be willing to lend a hand. In the area of security, there are many guys and girls who can assist. Off the top my head I can think of Soomer, Joyeaux, Leonty, the Joseph brothers etc. These guys are retired from the U.S. Army and have spent years performing operations. I have little doubt they can plan to bring smoke on those punks running around like Supermen.

    I am tired of reading the standard line from the Ministry Tourism, “blah, blah, blah, St. Lucia continues to be a safe place for tourists.” Do something about it! Dammit!

    • They will never answer your very good question. "Why were they not allowed to leave the country on Friday?". We all know that the official practice is to stay when such a question is asked. They just refuse to answer questions. The government does not care... except when the Prime Minister is visiting Vieux Fort on a Wednesday as his constituency Day he must have no less than two bodyguards with him...a real eye opener too... but citizens and their guests suffer.

Her soul mate...her vacation...and her items...you can't be that merciless to visitors when you know you gonna get caught...why kill him when he was just trying to protect his wife...why steal from him and her when you could have offered services they might have bought with no hesitation? But knowing this country the laws are so flawed that these idiots will get away and not be executed...I hope England sends their detectives the to help our police force gather concrete evidence to exterminate those punks...kill them I say and teach others a lesson... That's a crime against the country economy... Against the government... And against these people of VF

    • Kelba, please do not deflect it onto bad lighting and marine units. It could be pitch black, they SHOULD be entitled to move about freely. The entire fault lays with the thugs and the parents that shat them into this world.

      • You are sounding like the new committee there is in the Flambeau Camp "FACTS". There is crime everywhere in the world. I am one who believe that no one has the right to infringe on another one rights even if they are in complete darkness. When there are thugs around would you lime in dark areas? My point was if there were more lighting around the harbour, this could have been a deterrent for the criminal. I am sure if the couple knew better they would not have been in the dark. It is unfortunate. Coprandey?

      • In torusits palces can have security guard...would not be the only coutry doing this, believe me. Also talking about turist attractin...look at the amount of garbage on the oradside and beaches...and the amount of agreessive beggers...I hear tourists are not happy for that at all.

      • Idiot, if police have to be everywhere at same time there would be no shortage of jobs. Don't you know the positive effect of a good patrol? Let me educate you. If you are a thief and you know the police is in a specific area at any given time (not a specific time) would you take your chances there? That is the effect of a patrol. You do not have to be everywhere at the same time. Ok? So I am not a deck deck. I can teach you something.

    • kelba i agree with ur comment. where was the information in the news report?... police never seem to know shit.... they always trying to get to the bottom of everything til it all blows over .__. i also agree that if yachts are in a port such as VF which is very open and vulnerable that there should be sufficient lighting and more importantly some form of port security - cctv cameras - or a nearby marine unit t keep a close eye on yachts which are easy targets - and i think that the people that couldnt even disclose their names under their comments are ignorant - all in all if the people could not leave the port for what ever reason, their should have been proper security/safety measures in place. this is lack of management, organization and poor staffing.
