Babonneau Police are investigating the death of a young man in Chassin, Babonneau.
The body of 26-year-old Kesam Manalick Anthony, aka Redman, of Barre Denis, Castries, was discovered by a relative hanging by a rope which was tied to a mango tree on Tuesday, Dec. 8, 2015 at about 6:15 a.m., police said.
Police are treating the case as a suspected suicide until the post mortem, which has been scheduled for Tuesday, Dec. 8, 2015.
Anthony is originally from Richfond, Dennery but was living with his girlfriend in Chassin.
A relative, speaking on condition of anonymity, told St. Lucia News Online (SNO) that mounting “stress” may have led to Anthony’s death.
In addition to losing his job recently, Anthony had an argument with his girlfriend the night before his death.
“The family issues and the job loss didn’t go down well but he didn’t look like the type to give up,” the relative said.
