Officials: Kimberly De Leon sustained only one gunshot wound, according to post-mortem

Kimberly De Leon (left) was shot to death and her husband a cop (right) is fingered by police as a “person of interest” but he has not been arrested or charged.

(SNO) — Around the time Kimberly De Leon was murdered on October 29, 2018, residents of The Morne, Castries, reported to the media of hearing seven to 10 gunshots.

De Leon, a mother of two, was reportedly found suffering from multiple gunshot wounds when police responded to the scene around 10:30 p.m. on that date.

However, a post-mortem has concluded that she sustained only one gunshot wound, and that was a fatal one to the head. That’s according to information from official law enforcement sources.

The post mortem was conducted last Friday, reportedly by a new pathologist, according to reliable sources.

De Leon’s husband, a senior police officer, has been fingered as a “person of interest” by the police due to prior domestic dispute reports involving the couple.

However, he is yet to be officially arrested or named a main suspect. He has proceeded on a 100-day vacation leave, police said.

De Leon, who worked as an accountant in the Ministry of Education, was 42 years old.

  3. @SNO writer - What is the meaning or significance of this sentence in this article: "The post mortem was conducted last Friday, reportedly by a new pathologist, according to reliable sources." I honestly don't see the relevance for it? Are you trying to cast doubt on the competence of the "new pathologist?" That don't make sense to me. Trust me I have experience post mortems, the corpse reveal everything. If there were multiple entry point, it would be seen.

    @MKaks - On the other hand, I also take issue with the statement that "the post-mortem dispels all the 'inaccurate information' reported in the press about the number of gun shots the victim sustained." This statement gives the impression that the media is willfully and maliciously giving out false information.

    The media is just reporting the news as it is unfolding. According to the neighbours "hear-witness" (lol), they heard between 7-10 gunshots fired, and then someone turns up dead. It is not uncommon to assume that all the shots were fired at the victim. Yes, it is an assumption but it not an outrageous distortion. So as that information reaches the press, they cannot but publish it, and now, after the facts are reveal, they issue the correction. Nothing sinister here!

  4. If only the dead could speak. Kimberly may never get justice but there is a Judge the murderer can't run away from and unless he confesses what He has done, he will surely receive his judgement. Him and every murderer that is walking free in this world today.

  10. I need to really understand this statement, is it that the young lady sustained multiple gunshot wounds but only one gunshot wound out of all was responsible for her death? or was it that she was only shot once, and that particular gunshot wound was responsible for her death?

    • borjai! when I read comments I really feel sorry for lucians lol. the report was clear. cant read or you blind? lmao

      (4)(27)
    • obviously you can't read!

      (2)(12)
    • Like seriously my friend the first line of paragraph 3 cannot be any clearer than it is. The results of the post- mortem dispels all the inaccurate information reported in the press about the number of gun shots the victim sustained.

    • @Caribbean Goddess - Both this statement "However, a post-mortem has concluded that she sustained only one gunshot wound, and that was a fatal one to the head," and the headline "Officials: Kimberly De Leon sustained only one gunshot wound, according to post-mortem"of the article is VERY CLEAR!

  11. wow multiple gunshot to one shot and 100 days on leave. st.lucian tax payers paying for. 100 day on leave wow!!!!!!!not even MP`s in England can take leave like that.

    (15)(2)
    • what's your point basically? He or she can choose to go on leave whenever they choose to.

      (3)(21)
    • jo, I would have you know that police officers as well as most public servants accumulate many days leave. I have known of persons who have gone on 4 to 6 months of leave (vacation) because they have accumulated that much time. This is not a waste of tax payers money. This is time owed to them same as you take vacation every year from your job.
