Police sources have expressed concern that the island’s latest homicide victim, Tennyson “10 Cents” Lionel, is the second person, who has an ongoing case against a notorious criminal, to be murdered.

Lionel of Ciceron, Castries, was shot to death in Morne Du Don, Castries early this morning, hours after celebrating his 35th birthday.

A senior police official, who requested anonymity, told St. Lucia News Online (SNO) that Lionel was an eyewitness and victim in an ongoing robbery case.

Police said in a press release that Lionel was robbed on Jeremie Street, Castries on January 11, 2014. A man was charged with the incident and is now behind bars.

The senior cop said investigators believe his death may be linked to his robbery case.

“Yes, that is one of the leads we are exploring… It could be pure coincidence but we would not be surprised if it’s not,” the source said.

The first victim was fatally shot on April 24, 2014 at about 9:30 a.m. in Bois Patat, Morne Du Don – eight months after surviving a shooting in the same community.

Like Lionel,  the Bois Patat victim was an eyewitness in the first shooting he survived. The suspect in that shooting is the same man accused of robbing Lionel.

“Both Lionel and Simon had an ongoing case case against the man, who is still behind bars,” the source confirmed.

The senior officer said other possible motives are also being investigating.

“Lionel was also the victim of a chopping incident and he was also arrested for cannabis possession in the past so we are looking at all leads,” the source added.

  6. its seems to me St Lucia have alot of armed men and maybe women walking around. No country or island should dare try and mess with us. So many guns all over, they robbing you they pulling their guns, they threatening you they pulling their guns, they killing you they pulling their guns. All those gun totting men and women of St Lucia should put down your guns and take up your BIBLES. It is time to repent and be baptize. JESUS is coming soon. Satan knows his time is short and he is using all of you to do his dirty works. Turn away from your evil ways and turn to God. He will forgive you if you just ask HIM too. May God continue to watch over our island, and not let those who are bent on doing evil here succeed.

  11. There are way too many unsolved murders on this tiny island. If we do not have the necessary intelligence to solve crimes even when there are circumstantial evidence, may be it is time to seek help from foreign sources.

  12. These thugs are capable of calling shots while they'Re in jail. 2nd witness to be murdered. Thats no coincidence

  13. I couldnt agree with u more thinking outside the box. It doesnt matter if he is inside. Thats the whole point. To set u guys off. But I blive it is connected.

  14. The Police should keep his views to himself unless he has evidence to support his theory. What he is doing is to frighten people from giving evidence against criminals fearing that they may be killed if they are witnesses to crime. Investigate thoroughly and report officer. Please

    • You're an idiot! Just because someone is behind bars that doesn't preclude them from writing or calling someone else to do their dirty deeds. Wake up!
