BREAKING NEWS: Homicides #59 and #60 – Two bodies discovered in Vieux Fort

The year 2018 has arrived with the St. Lucia police investigating, possibly, the last two homicides of 2017 after the bodies of two males were discovered in Cantonement, Vieux Fort on Sunday night, Dec. 31.

According to reports and law enforcement sources, the first victim was discovered around 9 p.m. in a parked vehicle with gunshot wounds to the upper body, and died several hours later in hospital.

The second body, also with gunshot wounds, was discovered later on in the same area where the first body was discovered, and was pronounced dead at the scene.

It is not yet confirmed whether the victims are locals or non-nationals.

Police believe the incident/s occurred around 8 p.m.

Unofficially, these deaths bring to 60 the number of homicides recorded in 2017.

  1. MR. SECURITY MINISTER , PLEASE DO YOUR JOB OR STEP DOWN PLEASE;;;;. This is not and should not be a political position. The people of St.Lucia need answers. Your police force is corrupt and yet you fail to weed out the bad cops. We know who the bad cops are and so should you. Crime fighting start and end's with the Royal St.Lucia police force. This is a new year let us all make it count,and may the good lord bless us all.

  3. What is happening in St. Lucia? I can't believe there were 60 homicides in St. Lucia for 2017. Never thought I would live to see the day when they would ever have so many. Lucia is finished, no longer a Saint. We all have to pray a lot more for Her. Lord please help our Lucia,

  5. If the faces of those committing the crimes are plastered around the country, the will go down. Because St. Lucia is too small to say that nobody saw anything. Why hide their faces. The public needs to see those idiots. If the government cannot take care of its citizen then the citizen must take of itself.

  6. Congratulations on a job well done United Worthless Party. Please please please don't make any promises for 2018 that you know dam well you cannot and will not deliver on. St Lucians hands are full and cant hold anymore of your stones.

  7. If someone steal from me, if someone hurt me, if someone disrespect me in anyway I should take this person's life, take matters into my own hands so that my loving people, friends, family and fellow citizens can blame the government.

  8. Who is in charge of the police force in St Lucia? Well he needs to get off his lazy ass and have some sort of strategy in place to combat this criminal situation on this small island. People are scared to visit this beautiful island for fear of losing their life.

    It is a total shame.

  14. We the people born of this soil should remember that the life’s lost were st.lucians like us . Born in innocence. Some got misguided that’s because we took away respect from the elders of each of our communities. We all share in the responsibility of raising the next ambassadors of our country to make us proud . This new year let’s become the elders of long ago to the young so we can show the world how it’s done . This is our island , shine the light !

    • If you had taken your time to read the article correctly. It reads" It is not yet confirmed whether the victims are locals or non-nationals. Regardless they are human beings. And their deaths should be taken seriously.

  15. This is very sad that we are here in 2018 and all we can look back on in our beautiful Island is murder and suicides. What has our Country come to. Jesus is the answer lets pray 60 death is to much in Lucia wow.

  16. It is very sad that the increased murder is the island's major " achievement" for 2017. Second place goes to the increased crime rate. In joint third place are the record travels by the island's PM and allowing the sandals to withhold millions of the country's dollars. Fourth place goes to the ill conceived award of a multitude of contracts by an acting PM. Fifth place is taken by the government paying a firm 1.5 million dollars to prepare the nations budget when we have a well equipped Ministry of Finance. smh. Lord, put a hand.
    P.S. Do not tell me about Kenny and SLP. WE have had a new government for a year and a half 18 months).

  17. Shame! The crime symposium came at the end and way too late. Too late for 60 persons whilst the pussy footing nonsense and blame game continues unabated over IMPACS, the OK/EU, Grynberg and St. Judes, all to date still unresolved. The rape of Helen continues ......

  18. Welll no surprise. II said 60 on Friday and it will be worst for 2018. Why ? A finger was not lifted in 2017. The outrage coming out of Allen. Chastanet mouth is defing.

    • Politicians do not birth or breed criminals. Mothers do.

      Males shoot and rain them out as sperm.

      Mothers tie your tubes. Start now. Male sperm donours start wearing condoms.

      These are the kinds of help we desperately need today.

      If you cannot raise them, don't push them out on the society. Those scumbags are better off dead. Then we will have a better new year.

  19. WOW, do we not have a government in place? I thought Chastanet promised Lucians that crime would be reduced under his leadership (factual statement). What is the current government plan to erradicate crime on such a small island? I forgot, they have NO plan.

    (61)(25)

    • So Chastanet can prevent gangs from killing one another and stop reprisal killings? Ignorance looms among the so called intelligent people who sees nothing but politics in everything. Set aside politics and Chastanet and face reality. My opinion, they all could go ahead and kill each other daily...just don’t tough the innocent.

      And stop the ignorant ranting about Chastanet and politics. It happened under Kenny and it’s happening with chastanet. For as long as we continue with this “ government” rant nothing will change.

      For you retired people who sit in luxury at your homes get up get out and get involved in society by imparting morals into the youth and stop this political outburst.

      • Black people of today don't realise who they are, but the bible is black peoples history before slavery. Our ancestors turned their backs on TMH for pagan and gentiles religion worshiping idols. Black people know yourself please. We are the children of the Bible. Read Deuteronomy 28 and you will see why a special people around the world are victims of our ancestors. We are cursed and need to speedily get right with YAHSHUA HAMASHIAC Our Messiah and Saviour. If you don't make things right with Him. We are all damned with calamities like Hurricanes and Earthquakes etc. May you find yourselves with The Holy Spirit and get baptised with water and fire in Christ. Blessings to us all. In The Name of The Father and Son and Holy Spirit. YAH AND YAHSHUA HAMASHIAC WITH THE RUACH HAKODESH. PEACE/SHALOM. ???

  22. When it is a suspected suicide no office wants to take added stress to dig in more to find out if there is any foul play...it is wat it looks like to them...if any1 see the tree they said this man was hanged from they would blive this man didnt kill himself...and d officers dnt want to investigate any further...but the person or persons there is a God

    (6)(6)

    • What yippy self talking about? No suicide mention here, no tree. I agree that in previous suicide cases police have been quick to rule suicide even with mysterious cases, but where yippy see that here? Read in 2018 eh.
