BREAKING NEWS: Four persons in custody assisting with investigation of recent homicides
Scene of a homicide in Castries.
Scene of a homicide in Castris this week.

Acting Assistant Commissioner of Police for Crime and Intelligence, Milton Desir, has said four persons are in custody assisting police in connection with the four homicides that have occurred over the past five days.

Desir said the persons were brought into custody between Thursday and Friday.

At this time, the persons are considered suspects until enough evidence is gathered against them for charges to be laid, Desir told St. Lucia News Online.

To protect the identity of witnesses as well as the persons in custody, the police will not divulge for which homicides the four persons are being held.

He also noted that it is not yet guaranteed whether the persons in custody will be charged or not.

Four persons – Oran Charles, Anthony Harris, Asher Emmanuel and James Nelson – were gunned down in separate incidents, in Castries, between Saturday and Thursday.

Desir said police believe the recent violence in the  capital is gang-related.

  7. Seems like you all damn know who the perpetrators are. If you all do then assist the police. Police are trying their best, have some persons in custody yet still y'all claiming they have the wrong persons. If y'all know the right person call them.y'all Lucian's don't know wat y'all want. Hypocrites as y'all are

  8. Sometimes i am deeply saddened and left in utter dismay to see St.Lucians calling fellow compatriots such as themselves "IGNORANT AND ILLITERATE." Please St.Lucians refrain from such bogus accusations and think about what you are saying and how it reflects on you before you speak.

    Secondly all the criminal elements out there know each other and their operations in one shape or form and are fully aware of the current uprisals. The persons arrested maybe given the benefits of the doubt and are innocent in tge ongoing matter but are very much likely to be in possession of intel on the ongoing investigation!

  13. When people commit murder it is usually because they know that they can get away with it. Now this can be as a result of arrogance or sometimes corruption in law enforcement. This is a tiny country, I am sure the killers are known.

  17. Always heard slu are illiterate ppl.so what if they hold four ppl. They look like murdered so they got caught. And a matter of fact the police never say they commit the crime,they said they assisting with the investigation. Read ppl and understand.

    • Funny thing,you claim St.Lucians are illiterate & yet still your comment has so many errors.I will help you out by re typing your statement...."Always heard St.Lucians are illiterate ppl.So what if they HELD four ppl? They LOOKED like MURDERERS so they got caught.As a matter of fact,the police never SAID they COMMITTED the crime. They Said they are assisting with the investigation.....Seems like you should read & understand too before posting "ppl" are illiterate.
