Relatives say Nelson was a horseman and had a profound love for animals.

A man believed to be in his early 40’s was chopped to death on Tuesday evening in Laborie.

He has been identified as Marcus Nelson, alias Bowcha.

The incident took place at Mon Repos Hill, between 6 and 7 p.m., near his residence.

An eyewitness said Nelson’s body had multiple stab/wounds to his head, wrist (severed), and chest.

Residents claim they saw a white car leaving the scene, but did not bother to take the licence number.

It is believed that Nelson’s body was thrown out of the vehicle and onto the road.

The police have no suspects so far.

This is the second homicide for 2016.

  4. Well Bro, I'm not really sure where to start. With a heavy heart I write this piece. Your physical presence might be no more, but memories are never strangers to us. You were always misunderstood by some, but loved by many. For those who have perpetrated such heinous acts are nothing but filth. They also will have their day of reckoning.
    My travels to St.Lucia were never complete without seeing you and your wonderful horse. You always made it your duty to stop by and say "hi", always on horseback....you made my daughters day. You will be missed. But our visit will never be complete until we see you riding your horse on the sands of abacoco...even if it's imagined, memories are forever. Rest in peace my friend, I can just imagine your ride to the other side with your horse Nutmeg galloping flawlessly to your creator, somewhere where love resides in eternity.

  6. Yahweh, do not grant the wicked their wishes, do not let their plots succeed. Do not let my attackers prevail, but let them be overwhelmed by their own malice.
    May the slanderer find no rest anywhere, may evil hunt down violent men implacably.
    I know that Yahweh will give judgement for the wretched, justice for the needy.

    To Marcus' attackers, I now place you in God's hands and at his feet. Know that tomorrow is not promised to you. Do as you wish lord! Your will be done.

  7. Can't believe it. Such a sweet gentle soul, you didn't deserve this. Those responsible will suffer the same fate, even if they left the Island. Before this year 2016 ends or by January 5th, 2017 which ever comes first. Your days are numbered, there is a God! Know that he was someone's son, brother, father, uncle, cousin, nephew and friend. Marcus sweetheart may you Rest In Peace, you are now with your mom dad and brothers. Really can't believe it. You will be missed by all.

  8. What a waste of a young life, Can see him so clearly sitting proudly on his horse ...a very dignified guy always beautifully dressed. My heartfelt sympathy to his family at this sad time and I hope they catch the guys who did this. Laborie is small and they can't hide for long, someone will know who,they are for sure.

  9. all of you who blame those killing on the government are dolts.
    why you don't blame yourself for your drugs and unlawful dealings.
    this country have more prayers and rosary and calling on Mother Mary daily than any other country in the world yet it do not make things any better.
    WHY? BECAUSE your love of money is the roots and substance of your evil seeds. you harvest others fruits
    by killing them through petty jealousy just to make yourself look good.without working for your daily bread.

    You finish school and have plenty C X C and G C E.
    but never work for any company, never earn a paycheque
    but you are a self-made millionaire
    and have more jewel than Mr. T.
    you never drive a jalopy
    but pay cash money for your brand new B M W
    nuff respect.

    De public overstand when you do not understand
    de police have a legitimate order
    to divide de sheep from de goats
    even if it takes assassination to get de job direct,
    nuff respect.

    Sons and Daughters of St. Lucia
    Love life get vitalize
    Rise, yes, rise to excellence
    climb to your ancestral distinguished pinnacle
    fortify your mind against violence and crime
    be honourable not horrible; don't gamble with the gallows
    otherwise you will go horizontal 6 feet down under
    leave dispute and strife, 2 sons already have their life sneeze-out
    dead in the first 5 days of January.
    Let brothers dwell together in unity and perfect harmony.
    The height that great men reach and keep were not attained by violence
    but they while their companion sleep were receiving the Nobel prize
    causing an awareness and pride.
    AMEN.

  10. My God!! Where are we heading. Lord please put a hand. Our country has bled too much and is still bleeding. The year has just began people and to make it worse it is a LEAPYEAR. Father heal the open wounds.

  11. If my people who are called by my name, would humle themselves, and turn from their wicked ways then i will hear from heaven and heal their land. Lord please heal my land i pray. We need you lord more than ever our hearts are so hard lord and wickedly evil. Forgive my people lord.

    • That's an equally heartless response. We can have justice without becoming monsters ourselves.

  12. The more things change, the more it remains the same. Where is the U.S. in all of this can't they not see and hear that our Sweet St. Lucia is no more, blood keep on flowing on our streets every day. People chopping and stabbing humans like meat. ( Where is their human rights? Their right to live ) Our policemen are trying to fight crime, but there is only so much that they can do. Kenny does not know whether to move left or right as far as Impacs is concerned. Free our policemen so they can continue to do their jobs properly, after all part of our tax money goes to pay their salary, so we expect to be protected. The killings have started early, and we all should be watchful because it is a leap year. According to the older folks in a leap year things never seen will unfold

  13. The St. Lucia I grew up in would hang anyone when found guilty of such crime.
    The hypocrites in the large and very rich countries of the North, have made
    their mistakes in the past, so they stopped hanging people. St. Lucia is a very small
    Island Nation, we have been invaded by gangs of Drug and ammunition dealers,
    and due of course to our unfortunate circumstances, have ended up very poor and in need. The Churches have done a poor job in educating people of the dangers they face morally and spiritually. The T.V. with their wild western way of life, sexist behavior, get rich quick attitude, gullible young souls buying anything and everything dished out to them, not using any sort of wisdom, no wonder people get uptight
    at times such as this. The availability of weapons, combined with drugs is a bad mix.
    The churches need to step up, get people saved, teach the truth, help the poor, teach
    people to stop the hate [ CUT OUT THE POLITICAL RACIAL HATRED] love one another.
    Stop spreading the false image of St. Lucia, we must learn to love, give love and
    accept love. GOD IS LOVE.

  14. It is so sad that such a graceful soul had to go through this heartless demise..he was not perfect but humble...lets not loose focus on the problem.. We all have to stand together to fight this war...the battle belongs to the family with their loss..they Alone know what they have lost.. But the war belongs to all of us ..not just the government and Marcus's family...Brenda i sympathize with you...

  15. WE HAVE A BUNCH OF FOOLS WHO CLAIMS TO HAVE ALL D ANSWERS TO CRIME. THEY WANNA BLAME GOVERNMENT, WHEN THAT DONT WORK, THEY BLAME SOCIETY, WHEN THAT DONT WORK, THEY TURN PROFESSOR, ANALYST, DOCTORS, ALL SORTS OF PROFESSIONS TO POST FOOLISHNESS.

  16. If only we sit and think for a minute the consequences we have to pay if caught,or the pain of the victims family,friends we all would be better off. Can we all please try to get along? If love is all we have to give let's share it spread it outlet it be contagious. To my fellow Compatriot both home and abroad I wish each and everyone of you a Healthy and Prosperous 2016 with Jehovah's richest blessings.

  19. And so it begins... It is sad but i really didnt expect this year to be any different. Police need to step up their game!

  20. That is sad news. The young men in this country are behaving like savages despite leaving the African bush behind centuries ago. Now all they can do is declare violence on their fellow citizens much like their brothers are still doing in the Africa. The government should raise the cost and tax on all dangerous weapons, big knives, cutlass. let's see the youts go out and buy it.

  21. Why is it so difficult for people to just love each other? We are all we have in this world! It's not enough that we have natural disasters and diseases ready to take us out at any moment, we have to dodge each other too? People, love your neighbor. It may be hard to do so but we must try.
