Mother of slain youth leader Linus Constantine has said she is relieved that the Royal St. Lucia Police Force (RSLPF) has finally identified the decomposed body found on the Marisule beach on April 15 to be that of her son.
“We are relieved to know that that part is over and we could finally have some closure to the matter and put this phase behind us and at least try to move on,” Juliana Goolaman told St. Lucia News Online (SNO).
The mother however firmly believes that her family will not get the justice they deserve in the matter.
“That part of it I am not really concerned. With the law in St. Lucia, most of the time the criminals get away so they can do what they have to, but in St. Lucia there is no justice, that’s just the way I see it,” she told SNO.
After a series of forensic tests, the body of Linus Constantine was confirmed and handed over to his family on Thursday, October 9.
An autopsy report revealed that the former chairman of Youth Talk died of extensive head injuries secondary to blunt force trauma.
Arrangements for his burial are being finalised.
