The incident occurred around 8 p.m., and a male suspect is currently in police custody, eyewitnesses and law enforcement sources have told St. Lucia News Online.

“The guy who stabbed him (Curtis) was drunk,” one eyewitness, who wished not to be identified, alleged. “He went after his mother to kill her first but the people around chased him away. He left and went by the bay side where he saw the deceased, Curtis.

“Curtis asked him for a joint to smoke. He started arguing with Curtis so Curtis said ‘Boy you have rage man’ so he slit his throat,” the eyewitness added.

According to the eyewitness, an argument allegedly had developed between a relative or relatives of the deceased and the alleged assailant, either prior to the stabbing or immediately after the stabbing

This was also stated by another eyewitness, who spoke with St. Lucia News Online.

“The guy who stabbed him was mad at Curtis mom and wanted to stab his mom. Villagers stopped him from stabbing his (Curtis) mom, but still managed to have an altercation with the deceased. Nothing of this such has ever happened in Canaries. The entire village is in shock,” the eyewitness added.

The victim reportedly bled out on the scene and was transported to Soufriere Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

According to an eyewitness, the suspect turned himself in to the police station “right away” but “begged for forgiveness from the deceased’s family”.

“He (suspect) cried and pleaded, cause he realised what he did was wrong. So sad,” the source added.

  1. It is sad when lives are cut short. Sincere sympathy to both families. Although we cannot change what has happened we can learn from it. I am pleading with us young people violence is never the way out. Learn to walk away from trouble. It does not make you the weaker person.

  4. What did Chastanet say again? Kenny could not make you safe but I will. Is that kind of safety he given us? Chastanet is the cause of all these blood shed in St Lucia.

    • Jackass. Take the approach of blaming everyone else for situations and see how far you get in life. The government didnt make this guy get drunk and try killing someone.

  9. Now he crying for forgiveness! Why did he cool down himself when the people stopped him earlier, why didn't he just "chill out" when he had the opportunity. Oh how much we don't stop to think before we act recklessly.

    That’s another senseless, killing! Alcohol, uncontrolled anger, and lose of respect for life. What a shame. I’m saddened and shocked that this has happen in my neighborhood.
