CARIBBEAN360 – Don’t judge Grenada by the murder of Canadian-born university lecturer Linnea Veinotte; it’s still a safe place to be.
That was the message Acting Commissioner of Police Winston James delivered yesterday, as he updated the media on the investigation that led lawmen to believe Veinotte died as a result of blunt force trauma to the chest and lower body, caused in a car accident, and charge Akim Frank, 26, for non-capital murder.
“Grenada is known as one of the safest countries in the Caribbean and I don’t think that this incident should be used to tarnish the image of this country,” he told a media conference.
“It is unfortunate that it happened, but from our investigations we believe it was as a result of an accident.”
However, James said the investigation remains open.
