Scene of the crime.

The slain driver attached to the government’s Statistics Department had an altercation with the killer, investigations have revealed.

Eyewitnesses told St Lucia News Online (SNO) that they saw the driver, 39-year-old Lucius Laporte aka Marcus of New Village, Castries pulled brakes at the Anse Ger gap (he was northbound), came out of his vehicle and approached a man.

Laporte and the man started to exchange words. Soon after, the man (killer) reportedly pulled out  pulled out a scissors and started pointing it at the driver. The two started a scuffle. They ended up over the road and the attacker started stabbing him.

According to the eyewitnesses, Laporte was stabbed by the same man in a previous confrontation. The attacker had served a jail sentence for the crime.

A food vendor, who also witnessed the stabbing, said she was too afraid to watch.

She told SNO she ran for cover from the stones that were being pelted by the driver.

  4. ...The driver stopped to purchase from the vendor. The stabber asked the driver for a ride. Driver said no. Stabber was angry and stated puncinf blows. A scuffle ensued. Stabber went away briefly to get a weapon and stabbed the driver as he tried to escape to hid van. Dead men can't talk. So let's not say the driver wrong.He is not alive to defend himself

  5. well this really turns this story on its head. if this is true then "provocation is a cause" I've always asked police that.

    I'm not sayin anybody had to die. but y provoke a man who didn't trouble u first.

    ok yall hav history, he stab u in the past, but he did his jail time. what u did there driver was called "revenge" and as we can see not every time revenge is sweet.

  6. If this is what transpired, then it seems the real victim is still alive. If the deceased got a chance, he would probably have done just as much damage.

    on the lighter not callous side:
    one vacancy with -5% salary has just opened up.

  9. Whether he was the instigator or not the other person didn't have to bring a weapon into the fight. What happen to old fashion fist fight until both get tired. So sad. We are living in such a cruel world its a shame. We have no respect for each others life.

  10. ... The killer was out on bail and did not serve a sentence for his crime. According to eye witnesses he was stabbed from behind. Justice has not been served in St Lucia. AGAIN.. what happen to fist to fist .. cant Lucians fight...

  11. The murderer had been harassing Marcus for years now. This is really a senseless murder. Then they will claim that he is mentally unstable.

  12. He served his time for the crime. why did he have to approach the man and get stabbed by the same man.Now it costs him his life and the man will return to jail.Rip

    • Perhaps it was.
      Perhaps the "Law" will see it as "Manslaughter"

      Yet still, i feel for the deceased.

    • Probably the murderer wasn't sorry for the last time he stabbed him and started trouble again. Maybe there is something deeper. Either way the victim should of walked away or either called the police. It wasn't worth it.

      • We are only debating the circumstances surrounding this crime without concrete evidence. No matter what anybody says there is a killer in our midst.
