‘Tattoo Man’ murder remains unsolved as accused murderer walks

A Ciceron man, who has been on remand at the Bordelais Correctional Facility for a 2009 homicide, walked out of court a free man today, Monday, May 6, 2013.

Lanse Gerald was 21 years old when he was arrested and charged on Sept. 23, 2009 in connection with the shooting death of 25-year-old Sherick St. Rose aka “Tattoo Man” of La Clery.

According to police, St. Rose was shot by a gunman at about 8:30 p.m. on Sept. 15, 2009 at the Gulf in Ciceron, Castries. Gerald was charged for his murder just over a week later.

However in court today, the prosecution submitted an application, requesting the case to be dismissed.

Justice Francis Cumberbatch granted the request and Gerald was discharged.

St. Lucia News Online (SNO) understands that the matter did not progress beyond the case management process.

Efforts by SNO to obtain more information on the reasons for the dismissal and background on the case have proven futile thus far.
