 Share This On:

homicidePolice are investigating the killing of a man in Trois Piton, Castries today (Saturday, April 22).

The victim has been identified as 59-year-old Leonard Felicien, aka Leo, of Trois Piton.

An eyewitness told St. Lucia News Online (SNO) that the victim was allegedly stabbed to death during an argument/altercation over money around 3 p.m. It is alleged that a broken bottle was used to stab him.

A male suspect is in police custody.

“I saw the argument going on but I went to the church (Seventh-Day Adventist). By the time I sat in the church someone came saying he’s dead, so I went to look. The dead one (Leo) took a stone to knock the one that killed him but someone stopped them. In a matter of minutes one man dead,” the eyewitness told SNO.

“The man that killed Leo was caught by police and he waved goodbye to people while entering the police van,” the eyewitness added.

The deceased sustained a single stab wound to the lower part of his body, the eyewitness said.

This is the 21st homicide of 2017.

  1. We are blinded by Religion or politics., or both. Remember politics and Religion are both man made, divide and conquer. We still have not learned. This incident is all about human behavior, don't make it more than it is. R.I.P. LEO

  8. Whatever the argument was about was not worth it. We seem to have lost our self control, self discipline, sometimes all it takes is one person to be a bigger person and step back, even if you are right. You cannot take back these actions.

  9. Historically, and now globally black lives are cheap and dispensable. It is ourselves only who can put a value to our lives by respecting our lives by respecting the lives of each other. We can replace material things but not lives. There seems to be a rage bubbling in the minds and hearts of so many of us that gives vent to violence. Some people with religious beliefs see such behaviours as the external work of the devil. I think not taking charge and responsibility of one’s emotional response to a given situation is the problem. Instead of seeing someone as an enemy why not envision the person or situation as God being in our face and respond accordingly. It is amazing how respectful, wise and humble we can be in the presence of God.

  13. Someone actually saying the Lord does not exist wow!!!!! That person sleep, breathe, eat and walk evil. You need prayers my friend. My he guide you no you can see the light.

    (2)(3)
  14. For all who say "The LORD does not exist", what if it is really true that He does? Yeah, now you can't be so sure . . . and let's go further, what happens to y'all when He returns and you come to the realization that it is true, what would you do then? Well, I suppose nothing because it is too late (sad).

    Now don't be so fast to criticize me. The "Smartest man in the world" (the one in the wheel chair) says he believes that alien life exist but guess what he has never, ever seen one. Yet he believes (in the probability that aliens do exist). And y'all say I am crazy for believing that God exist.

  15. Oh lord those commentators need help. The things they say. No respect for one's opinion. And of course someone must make a stupid ass political comment. Sad that we are quick to acthe violently then maybe think next.

    • The national trust has become a political wing so I won't allow my hard earned tax dollar going to this organization. He is right and I hope this 700000.00 goes to our hard working police officers ? to help in crime fighting.

    • Tired of the blood shed

      They should implement capital punishment. I believe in that , u kill someone u should be punished accordingly . Taking away their freedom isn't enough . They need to start making examples of these murderers. If u can easily take away someone's life you should be able to lose urs just the same. They need to change the way things are done, because it isn't working . Ppl dying back home like it's the new trend.
      It saddens me to hear about Leo, and my condolences goes out to his family and friends .
      I also feel bad for Wayne , because in my opinion I didn't think Wayne thought Leo would die .
      But honestly Wayne u need to be taught a lesson , so the others that will think to do what u did will rethink it.

      (0)(1)
  37. No one didn't hear there was an argument to ask them to stop or finish with that! Or call the police?
    I'm sure there were people around, all what they do is stop, listen and even put wood in the fire to blaze until someone dies.

    (23)(5)
    • You contact the police and they don't come!! I swear, up to a few days ago, I called central for a heated argument and the officer will ask me if the person is mental? Really. They never showed up by the way. Someone needed to be killed to create urgency.They don't take to seriously, it's just sad

      (47)(1)
    • Wow didn't know u was deh. Da last time I checked "while on the scene" people were trying to hold him back. Who stupid enough to make somebody stab dem wen deh was just tryin to help separate. Urll just like to beat urll ass uselessly

      • "IF" there is a god and if he have "unlimited" power:
        can he build a stone that is to heavy for him to lift up?

        the answer is NO.
        1) if he still can lit up the stone he is unable to make that heavy stone
        2) if he can't lift up the stone he have only limited power.

        Ask your priest about this logic.
