  1. "Expensive" frequented the Ganther's Bay area. He spoke of having grown children, so he does have family. It is just a shame that they have not claimed him

  2. We all know that it is standard to have someone who knows him to identify him. But to issue the following:

    "Police believes the deceased to be one “Earl” also known as “Expensive”, possibly of Marchand, Castries. The mother of the deceased is also believed to be one “Elmona.” Means that the police have identified him. Whether someone has to come and do it officially is irrelevent.

    An opinion of the police is a fact until it can be confirmed or disputed in the court.

  3. The police can make a positive i d on this one. right? They Know who is his mother and all. Because he wasn't murdered? What if "expensive" had been killed? would they have gone on to identify him even if they knew who he was? These are the questions which an intelligent public should be asking.

    Police place impediments on themselves only when it is convenient.

    • Wam There, the police cannot assume this is Expensive and carry out investigations that this is him. The body has to be properly identified before a post mortem examination can be performed. Unless an ID happens, his body will lie in the morgue forever. This is why we are calling on family members to come forward to identify him.

  5. Maybe he hasn't been claimed because the funeral cost would be too 'Expensive'. I hope he gets a decent burial, nonetheless.
