Police have charged a man in connection with the homicide of Santo Leo Paul in Marchand, Castries almost two weeks ago.

Shevaughn Ramsey, 24, of Marchand was charged on Sept. 5, 2013, police said.

He appeared in court on Sept. 6 where he was ordered remanded at Bordelais Correctional Facility until the next court date on Nov. 8, 2013, police said.

Paul, 19, was shot by a gunman at his home on the George Charles Marchand Boulevard at about 1:20 am on Saturday, Aug. 31, 2013.

An eyewitness told St. Lucia News Online that Paul was with his girlfriend in a “shack” when he was shot.

“After he got shot he ran and fell in front someone’s house in the gutter,” the eyewitness added.

A police press release corroborated the eyewitness account: “Information indicates that a male individual entered the dwelling house of Santo Leo Paul and fired shots in his direction hitting him on the upper part of his body.”

According to residents, Paul’s life was threatened following a dispute with at least two persons in the community.

Reports are that Paul is the third male to have died tragically in his family.

  3. Stop acting as if Paul, and his brothers were innocent young men. They were not model citizens who were struck down by vile criminals. They were vile criminals, who were struck down by other criminals. When we come crying out for them. Just remember the lives that were lost by their doing.

  4. Ramsey was released from prison last year after many years for murder. Just after his realease, he was shot at. He was a wanted young man but went back ti the same environment and atmosphere where nothing positive was done to assist him, but rather the same cycle that caught led him to crime etc in the first place. So I would have to wonder, his first time in prison for murder, would it have been his last time? I guess not, because, like it or not, there is no foundation in the home. Are there any after-prison rehabs, or even follow-ups on these young men who were raised only on sand? Where are the fathers, who would stand as the cement to mix with the sand to upbring promising scholars and doctors?? I know that some parents(mainly single-mothers) try hard to raise excellent kids but along the way through negative influences choose the wrong path, but most young people are missing fathers. Fathers, that are examples, fathers that are God-fearing and humble. Where are the FATHERS? I believe that is where it all starts so we should analyse and put our observations, knowledge, and education(no matter how little we have) in order and think and speak sense. Sense that would help a brother, a sister or anyone who may need it. Stop blaming others who have studied and trying to make us understand differences in human rights and the like. We are often to quick to point fingers? It all starts we us individually to make a difference, to make a sensible change and collectively many crimes and incidents can be prevented. God have mercy on us and lead and direct out youth in your ways in Jesus Name, Amen!!

  10. How would u like to know that someone kill yur love one and somebody knows and saw what happened and dont inform u how would u feel?. If this person have half a brain they will know its the right thing to do. Thats the only way these crimes csn be solved in a timely manner so that the victimes families can have some closure and move on. Have a heart.

  11. Lady of the day u good for ass ee, when we give the popos info and we help them, will they help us????? No e.g laurent naurent at faux a chaud who was gunned down, after pleading for something to be done and for some witness protection, he's not longer a victim, he's now the past! I bet if u saw somebody do a murder u would never go to court as a witness! The police themselves is situeze! That person got to be really close to me for me to serve as witness. R.I.P young man.

  13. My heart felt condolences go out tothis young man's family. I can relate an event in my life all too well. Three years ago my husband was savagly beaten with a post and hammer by his own friends. They were arrested by police and later released on bail. Up to a day like today none of his friends have been punished for the crime they committed. I think its sad that the justice system fails so many people in the sweet little country of St.Lucia. Its true Canada and the US have more crime but they also have millions more people. I find too many people dying on a regular basis for such a small place. Somethings gotta give, I just pray for all these young wanna b bad boys taking people life....it just isn't right. This is so sad...everyday its becoming a routine now...
