A complex investigation.
That’s how Inspector Marcellinus Leonce of the Vieux-Fort Police Station has described their investigations into the murder of Saadia Byron whose body was found last Saturday in a shallow grave covered with stones.
“There’s a lot of hard work to be done. The investigation is complex in nature…”, Leonce told this reporter in a interview.
The body of Bryon, 32, of Black Bay, Laborie, was found by her relatives about 30 metres from her home where she lived with her three children, mother, and other family members.
One of the two men who was in police custody assisting them with their investigations into the case was released on Tuesday. The man remained in custody is a resident of Augier who is well known to the deceased’s family.
However, the inspector could not say when or if he will be charged, but wants to assure the public that the police will do everything within their powers to bring the perpetrator, whosoever it is, to justice.
According to Leonce, they are satisfied with the assistance they have received from the public so far in their investigations.
“People have come forward willing to assist us with our investigations…” he said, adding that people appear to be very annoyed by what has happened to Byron.
“I personally need to applaud the public for their effort in assisting us in our investigations…” he said.
Leonce said whatever information the public furnishes them as it relates to the incident will remain confidential.
“We want the public to continue to assist us…We can’t do it alone,” the Inspector said.
In the meantime Laborians are still reeling from the effect of the tragedy which has left the entire community in shock and disbelief. They want to see justice prevail in the matter sooner, rather than later.
