Vieux-Fort police are currently investigating the circumstances surrounding the death of a young man of Vieux-Fort who was stabbed multiple times about the body.
Keith Smith, 29, met his demise about 9.pm on Wednesday at Westall Group, Vieux-Fort, one of the most troubled areas in Vieux-Fort town.
Information as to where exactly he got stabbed could not be ascertain at this time since all the people this reporter spoke to seeking information on the incident were tight-lipped.
And Inspector Leonce of the Vieux-Fort Police Station was not available to comment on the matter.
However, investigations by this reporter revealed that there were witnesses to the incident.
There are conflicting stories as to where he actually got stabbed. According to rumours, he was not stabbed where he fell to the ground.
His sister Tracy Johannes said the last time she spoke to her brother was about ten minutes before his death, when they met at her home.
She said when he was leaving she asked him why he would not go and sleep, to which he replied,” It’s too early to go and sleep.”
Tracy added that while Keith was leaving her home, he left a message with her relative who was also at home while he was there, saying “Tell Tracy I am going and I will not be coming back.”
And it was a fact, he never came back.
According to the grieving Tracy, later she got the shocking news from another relative that Keith was killed.
“When I arrived on the scene I saw him lying on the ground on his back with his hands wide open, legs crossed, his eyes wide open and his neck on a side,” she recalled.
She added: “You could of seen the punctures to his body through his shirt which was stained with blood.”
She described her brother as a jovial and helpful person.
“Words can’t describe how I feel,” she told this reporter.
