UPDATE: Caye Mange homicide victim named

stabbing3Police are investigating the stabbing death of a male in Caye Mange, Monchy (Gros-Islet) Sunday night, Jan. 17.

Reports are that the victim was stabbed multiple times during a break-in/attempted robbery of a shop in the community. The incident occurred after 10 p.m.

A resident told St. Lucia News Online (SNO): “A guy usually stays in the shop for the owner and the shop was closed, and the robber entered the shop not knowing he was in the shop. So there was a scuffle and loud noises and some neighbors heard some loud noises. When they ran by the road they saw the perpetrator jump on the road and ran. When they checked, they saw a lot of blood. Everyone is shocked and cannot believe somebody would do that.”

The victim whose real name is Jean Hamilton Louis but is known by the nickname “Coolie”, is 62 years old.

He has been described as someone who did odd jobs for persons in the community.

Said a resident who knew him: “He was all over. He wasn’t like a zombie. He was always clean but he smoked a lot and drank a lot . But not drink to fall and stuff . You would ask him to go to the shop for you or something. He would clean your yard for you, all of that.

“He was a darling. Can’t say anything bad about him; was never in any problem or anything.”

  1. This is very sad, st Lucia is a very scary place to live, because no one gets caught and crime just continues, the facilities are not there.

    No proper medical diagnosis, not able to solve crimes, police have no adequate tools, this is very serious people.
    Tthis place right now is not beautiful .

    Very sad for the gentleman, this should not have been, the robber, at least you saw an older person there, just go away, the gentleman did not have to Suffer that fate.

    Please everyone in this st Lucia, we all live there, whether you are north, south, east, west, we are all in it, no house is safe from cape state in the. Notth to shanty town in the south, we all use the same facilities, no one is better than the other, we do not have royalty in this country, we are all from a working class background, so stop putting up your noses to others, live as one and one for all.



  2. What is our problem st.lucia. is this kind of behavior acceptable in our society today. What are the leaders of this state saying and doing to curb such heinous crimes on our citizens. Its 2016 leaders we need to feel safe in our big mansions, huts, 4×4 whatever we call home. Oh my goodness. Oh Helen i need you back.
