Man charged in connection with security guard’s death

Police have formally charged a man in connection with the death of a security guard who was beaten while on duty at a high school in Castries.

Joseph Simon of Agard, Morne Du Don has been charged for causing the death of Edwards Thomas and is expected to appear in the First District Court shortly, a police press release has stated.

“In spite of this initial arrest, investigations are continuing into the matter,” the release added.

Thomas, who was attacked on Wednesday, July 3, 2013  at Bocage Secondary School, succumbed to his injuries at the Intensive Care Unit of Victoria Hospital on Tuesday, July 16, 2013 at about 2:25 am.

The attack occurred when officers received information of a burglary at the school, the release stated.

A post mortem examination was conducted on the body on Friday, July 19, 2013. The results indicated he died as a result of brain damage secondary to blunt force trauma to the right temporal area.

During the burglary, two computers were stolen from the principal’s office after the culprits broke the wooden door.
