Police spokeswoman Corporal Ann Joseph has thanked members of the public who have helped investigators charge a young woman in connection with the death of British national and longtime Saint Lucian resident Robert ‘Bob’ Hathaway who was found dead with stab wounds at his Piat, Grand Riviere home in Gros Islet nearly 10 months ago.

Joseph told a press briefing on Tuesday, November 5 that 22-year-old Elizabeth Jeanelle Volney of Ti Morne, Union was arrested and charged on Saturday, November 2, 2019, for “causing the death of Bob Hathaway”.

Volney appeared in court on Monday.

Hathaway was found dead in his apartment (one on the left) in January 2019

Volney was taken to court on Monday, November 4 and has since been remanded in police custody, Joseph told reporters.

“The Royal Saint Lucia Police Force obviously wishes to thank members of the public who were instrumental in these charges being preferred and encourage persons to continue providing us with information as it relates to any crime that may have occurred that you’re aware of,” Joseph said.

Volney has been remanded to prison

She was unable to say if there are other suspects in Hathaway’s homicide — the first for 2019.

Hathaway’s naked and lifeless body was discovered in his house on January 13, 2019, with multiple stab wounds, according to reports.

The British national reportedly moved to Saint Lucia in 2001, built a home and later started a business in the tourism industry.

  1. I would hate to see an innocent person go to prison for a crime he or she did not commit . would lie detector be a good thing in st. Lucia. ? I guess not, because the police would not want any part of it. including body cam. Think about that a little.

  2. Ok I'm curious .We have no concrete evidence as to what happen what's to say she did in self defense if she did. I mean where's the information. And why is it most times people commit acts of violence and no pictures we just hear this one did this but this young girls picture is being exploited oh well that's my opinion I dont know the full story. Give us the whole thing not half not quarter .

  7. As a proud St. Lucian, and an ex police officer , with services around the world I say to those people who do not get it . At less than 200.000 people and registering 40 + murders each year it is un thinkable . Tell me a country with 200.000 people and registering so many murders.? you cannot compare u s a or England to st Lucia, get your facts straight. We are a corrupt country and this needs to change a s a p.

    (18)(7)
    • Move on with your miserable self . As an ex police your stupidity is immeasurable and immense. How corrupt is St.Lucia? What's needed to change ASAP. A few days living overseas you get to realize we are a no good country? Boy I tell you knee grows like you need a short rope and a steep push you bloody idiot. If you are trying to put St.Lucia out there you are failing miserably.

  11. Why is it some Lucians get offended when the truth comes out about St.Lucia . It is there in plain sight. Corruption at every turn including law enforcement . They are selling and putting Guns in the hands of the criminals ,where is our security minister and the police chief . Does this sound familiar.? Well this is the truth .{ Do something }

    (10)(6)
  12. St. Lucians must find a way out of those useless killings . Our population and our gdp just doesn't add up, yet we are ranked in the world's most dangerous in killings , and still there are no percentage of St.Lucia in the world population. The reason is simple . Past and present governments has let the people down. Three words for St Lucians . { TOO MUCH CORRUPTION } We must stop this plague on our island.

  18. What a dump Lucia is..why would anyone want to come here. Per capita it has a higher murder rate than drug ridden Mexico! Now that's a statistic for the tourism industry...

    (11)(70)
    • You need to keep your ass quiet you 4king idiot. Stay in the dump where you are overseas cause you would love to come back home but cannot no status. Or if you under the bush at home with somebody stolen phone in your hands shooting BS. Sub human like you are part of the freaking problems not the solution. Here's wishing you a very miserable week azz wipe.

      (51)(6)
      • I actually agree with Chochul, both my parents are Lucian and I have been traveling there since i988. I own property there and to be honest I would preferably sell it than invest and choose to live in what St. Lucia has become. It's dangerous not just for foreigners like myself but for the everyday person living there. People may not want to hear it but if this country continues on this violent spiral it's only a matter of time before people decide to spend their hard earned money somewhere else.

        (15)(23)
        • There's a sucker born every minute and one of them is you. Why call yourself foreigner? I call you a bookie and yes take your nickle and dimes somewhere else you will never be missed good riddance to bad trash.

          (28)(6)
        • Looking for property...sell it for me please at a good price..I love my country

          (34)(1)
        • Gasa shut up wit ur nonsense so where u are donot have crime uall stupid ppl does get me so sick

          (24)(0)
        • Yall can't chat the most bullshit. Because where ever u live is crime free. Stop your bullshit. Sell the property and don't come back. I promise you St Lucia and no one in it will miss you.

          People don't get killed everywhere in the world? Damn. No body asked you to spend your money in St Lucia. Stop sounding ignorant.

          (23)(1)
        • So why you eh sell it in your Moda & fada ass. U deh commenting. Like Mexico and Lucia could compare . _|_

          (0)(0)
      • Learn what per capita means before you uneducated azzes start attacking the truth...you all live in an alternate universe....
        Better come and love in The Hamptons where it's safe and prosperous and leave your corrput leaders

        (2)(6)
        • If you live in the Hamptons I am glad for you, because you better take care of the peoples lawn or pools very carefully or else the little room they let you live in will be given to someone else for there is no shortage of Mexican. Why are you calling us uneducated. Idiots surrounded by idiots are very dangerous sal twis.

          (7)(1)
    • What the he'll are you talking about the great country of st.lucia is a very safe place to be is the choices you make will decide ur fate dump ass just like any other country dont you ever speak one st.lucia my land my country u fake lucian

      (15)(1)
      • Why don't your uneducated azzes learn what per capita means and then maybe you will accept the truth. The crime ridden hole that Lucia is reflects a society of angry people. The majority of Lucians are lovely people let down by a bad corrput visionless leaders
