Authorities say they are investigating the death of Yana Auguste, 30, whose semi-nude body was discovered near the Hummingbird Beach in Soufriere on Sunday, July 12, as a homicide.
Assistant Commissioner of Police with responsibility for Crime and Intelligence Milton Desir said this decision was made based on the circumstances surrounding the woman’s death and the evidence gathered by investigators.
He revealed that a man is also being questioned by the police in connection with the woman’s death.
The police are trying to obtain any information that may lead to an arrest of the person or persons who might be responsible for the woman’s death.
It is not clear whether the man had any relation with the dead woman.
A post mortem examination is scheduled to be conducted later today on Auguste’s body.
Relatives believe that the former waitress was murdered.
