Police have released the identity of St. Lucia’s 15th homicide victim.

He is 29-year-old Kernan Charles, originally of Saltibus, Choiseul but resided at City Gate, Castries.

Charles’ body was discovered by a relative at about 11:30 this morning, Thursday, June 6, 2013.

According to a police press release, investigators “discovered the body of a male individual in a lying position on a couch near the main entrance of his home with an apparent wound to the head”.

“During initial investigations, it was believed that the deceased suffered gunshot wound/wounds to the head. Pathologist Dr. Stephen King was summoned to the scene. He examined the body and pronounced it dead,” the press release added.

Police said a post mortem examination is scheduled for a later date and the matter is currently under active investigations.

Police said anyone with information pertaining to the circumstances surrounding the death of Kernan Charles is asked to contact the office of the Major Crimes Unit at 456-3754/3756 or the nearest police station.

  3. I don't think there is any problems with the island,for the island itself is only land and sea..before man came with their way of doing things, so it's the people living on the island, with regards to his nick names, it doesn't really matter whether it is cocaine, or 50, or whatever..this is besides the point here, a man was killed, I find everytime someone is killed in st lucia people make corrections on things that are irrelevant like who his girlfriend was and what his nick name was,and so on..a man don't wake up one day and decide to kill another man, what i am saying is that there was some conflict between the two of them and that's how the weaker vessel decided to handle it, killing someone is never the solution to a problem,and going to another country is not going to stop crime in your country either, i think you're gonna witness crimes you've never ever seen in your island in another country... people pushing people in front of trains and brains splatted all over the subway,people dismembered people's bodies,the police finds head in the south the torso in the west the arms in the north and so on and the list could go on
