Police continues to investigate Cap Estate incident

PRESS RELEASE – About 9:30 p.m. on Friday April 25, 2014, officers attached to the Gros Islet Police Station were summoned to a scene of a vehicular fire at Cap Estate, Gros Islet.

On arrival, the officers observed what appeared to be the charred remains of a human being in the passenger side of a burned out SUV. The remains were transported to the Victoria Hospital mortuary. A post mortem examination began on the body on Monday, April 28, 2014 and will continue on Tuesday, April 29, 2014.

The Royal Saint Lucia Police Force (RSLPF) is yet to confirm the identity of this individual. The organisation wishes to distance itself from reports published in the foreign press regarding the identity of this individual, who is quoted to be the remains of Oliver Gobat of Cap Estate.  The organisation is not in a position to definitively make any pronouncement and is awaiting the results of the post mortem examination. In the absence of scientific evidence, we cannot conclusively make an identification.

The RSLPF deals primarily with facts and as it stands, the organisation is working assiduously to determine the identity of this individual.

The media and members of the public are asked to be mindful, that the police cannot operate under the basis of speculation in the course of its investigations.

  1. The RSLPF couldn't find a Jew in Israel; they desperately need help. Bring in Scotland Yard now! Mr.Prime Minister enough excuses. Get some help man. Many St.Lucians abroad will not return home until the issue of crime is addressed.

  3. "The media and members of the public are asked to be mindful, that the police cannot operate under the basis of speculation in the course of its investigations." What about a Minister of Tourism making those pronouncements in a Press Statement.

    Is the Minister of Tourism the Police? So the Government is free to speculate who it is but the public and media are supossed to keep their A.. shut, right?

  4. A lot of people always say it is not the government's fault for all the crime currently taking place in St.Lucia . I think if the government tackled the situation in the first place, it would not have been this bad. Also the minister of tourism is now saying it looks bad abroad but I have noticed when is the locals getting killed nothing is said but when is a foreign person and it goes global only then they want to do something about it. That is disgusting only there for their pockets and not for the people who elected them!

  5. Very Sad news... I remember a couple of years ago I heard about saw two young people bodies burnt to death in a car by the beach in the southern part of the country. It sounds like the same MO to this murder. Also the rumour about the Southern murders were it was not locals involved and it was mentioned that this was mistaken identity, still no one have been arrested to this date... Allot of questions needs to be asked. Anyway, no one deserve a death like this and may his/her soul rest in peace.

    What about the other two bodies found in the last few days near the beach? Are they underworld too? We must avoid writing unsubstantiated hurtful things about murdered people because their families are dealing with a lot of issues. Then add your additional crap.

  8. I have to agree with the RSLPF. It would seem like common sense that the charred remains are his, the vehicle already matches his and he is missing, but it could be anybody in the passenger seat at this point. If it's not him then there's hope he is still alive who knows he could probably be secluded on a boat in the open ocean heading somewhere planning what Bond moves he will use to escape and return to tell an incredible story, but if there's concrete evidence the charred remains is him then please ignore my over-active imagination above. Whatever happens, nobody deserves to die this way, that's beyond wicked.
