This is the second recorded homicide for 2014 and the second chopping incident in Dennery for the year.

The first homicide occurred on Thursday, Jan. 2 when 27-year-old Joel Nobal, otherwise called “Wells” and “Willie”, of New Village, Castries was shot in the head while sitting under a shed in his community.

The first chopping incident occurred just 14 hours into 2014 when a man’s right hand was severed by a masked attacker in Au Leon, Dennery. The victim was reportedly in the company of some people by the road, opposite a bar, when the attack was launched.

    • So there is another colour for bloodshed about from red? Was the blood shed before not red? If you are going to make associations at least come out and say it and do so in at least a semi intelligent manner.

  6. You mean to tell me chopping and murder are so commonplace now people can just calmly look on and watch as a man bleeds to death? Then take pictures too? No one knew to tie the mans leg above the knee to stop the excessive bleeding? The man had no family present to help get him to a medical institution sooner so he would survive? I can't believe it!

  8. A man chop in the leg and he bled to death, this man should not have died. From what I read, their must have had witnesses and you mean not one person in the lot knew First Aid. I believe this man would still be alive had someone applied a to stop the bleeding, at least all he would have lost was his leg and not his life. My condolences to the bereaved family, may he RIP.

    Having say so, I believe that we as a nation need to take stock of how we handle conflict. Programmers should be put in place to teach our people how to deal with conflict, if I am right most of these occur as a result of simple issues which can be dealt with through conflict resolution and not by the gun or the cutlass. I will concur with some who keep saying we need prayer, however prayer on its own with no action will not result in anything happening. It is like one praying for a job but not sending out résumés.

    • you will bleed to death from sustaining lacerations to the leg as the largest blood vessels are found in the leg a rupture of these will cause you to bleed profusely

      • I agree with you but if a Tourniquet was applied then this man would not have died, he could have been alive today.

    • Well when he picked up that cutlass to fight, he knew that there were consequences. If you place your hand on a hot pan, or in the flames, you must get burnt. So he suffered the price for his lawlessness.
