  1. Like the saying goes obeah will never finish in the world.put them in the streets eating out of garbage cans ppl will say u not good ahhhh god tan smh


  2. The money they have doing they own business with they should send some officers over seas to study forensic so many women getting rape and killed so unfair ....smh


  3. Hope these two individuals in custody can bring light to her tragic circumstances. We need the killer behind bars now!

    Ps. Laborie is in Vieux Fort?


  4. bunch of assholes always blame the government but surprising i havent heard of seen one person mention the government interesting


  5. It would be a trevesty if this deranged individual is not apprehended. We cannot have individuals with this kind of mindset walking around in neighborhoods where women and kids are present. They first need to be castrated prior to any other punishment delivered by the courts.


  6. What can I say about this case that we have not seen in the others before. Police continuing investigations. After 72 hrs they have to release anyone in custody. Evidence not forthcoming. Lab not functioning. Need to send samples away. Results never seem to be forthcoming. Quietly and eventually things will cool down as we forget about this crime and untill the country experiences another gruesome criminal act. Then the sad cycle will repeat itself.

    Is that all we the citizens will get and in particular the family of the murdered victims.


  7. I don't care what anybody say, I believe in the death penalty for certain such crimes.
    We have to send out a strong message to these criminals out there. If the U.S. and
    the U.K. etc complain, tell them to come and live down here. It isn't easy at all.
    I feel sorry for the grand mother who now have to raise the three little ones. Help Lord.


  8. A real test for the police force. They are being unfairly treated. So where will the evidence be tested? What a shame! Having a lab sitting there and unable to help the justice system. So what do we do? More money to send evidence away and wait forever for results. Are we that rich? This is absolute foolishness and bad management of scarce public resources. Does that not touch anybody in authority even if in the name of the many victims of unsolved crimes. That is like killing the victims all over again.


  9. Their feet rush into sin; they are swift to shed innocent blood. They pursue evil schemes; acts of violence mark their ways.


  10. For it is God’s will that by doing good you should silence the ignorant talk of foolish people. Live as free people, but do not use your freedom as a cover-up for evil; live as God’s slaves.
    1 Peter 2:15-16 NIV


    • To be the ‘slave’ of God who has given us free will is nonsensical and such interpretation of the bible comes from the mind of those who have never been burnished by slavery! “Live as God’s slaves” is face twisting as sucking a lime!

      There is more inspiration in being God’s servants and apply free will that liberates. And an even more meaningful upgrade from slaves or servants is to be the masters of our destiny and being responsible for our actions and in-actions.

      Whoever committed this heinous crime, taking the life of this woman is the slave to their perversity and evil chose not to be the master evil within themselves.


  11. Where is Mary Francis is she not saying anything? A woman like was killed and she is quiet. If it was the police that kill her she would be on the news the same day. Does that mean the victim has no rights.


  12. I knew her personally she was a darling n didn't deserve to go this way. I spoke to her Thu night. My heart goes out to the family especially her 3 kids. The monster that did that will certainly pay there is a God.


    • A very sad situation indeed..... his payment will be karma....not your version of God in the heavens exacting revenge for something he/it supposedly allowed to happen in the first place..... open your eyes people... prayer won't do a thing, we need to act now.... you've been warned.


    • If u did speak to her on Thursday nite can you assist with the investigation? Currently trying to trace her last movements


  13. Rip Sadia. I knew you personally to being a quiet and pleasant individual who was always about your business. Never that of anyone else.

    Correction to newsonline: Blackbay where Sadia was found is a part of Laborie.
    Laborie isn't a part of vieux Fort. It's a village. One of the many villages in St.Lucia.
    There's also a blackbay found in vieux fort.

    Also was it 9 a.m she was last seen or 9 p.m?


  14. I'm sure they know they will be out soon.........Trust me tomorrow the incompetent detectives will say there is not enough evidence to keep their azz in the calaboos. RIP in Eternal Peace Saadie.


    • Not enough evidence makes them incompetent or arresting and charging someone Nd the case being thrown out is


  15. Yeah....Great God good work St.Lucia these criminals especially them rapist and murderers have to get off the least the poor mother of three can get justice soon,my condolences go out to her children these young children family and friends.


  16. I pray to god that individuals pay gravely for their crimes. Do you have a mother, sisters, family members. What goes on in your minds during the process of commiting these crimes. Don't believe in the death penalty but right now I think is time to make an example of these guys.


  17. 51!!!!! really for such a small island this is ridiculous. Poor lady may she rest in peace the perpetrators be caught and hung ( though not much chance of that with all the do-gooders around today)
