Consolidated Foods Ltd (CFL), operators of the Super J supermarket chain, is now recording the loss of their second employee to tragic circumstances.
The death of Julian Agard, who was allegedly electrocuted Tuesday night, August 6 at the Beausejour Cricket Ground, comes one month after the discovery of Ronnie Walter’s decomposing body on Sunday, July 7, 2013 behind a playing field opposite the Babonneau Secondary School.
Agard was CFL’s head of security (loss prevention manager), while Walter was an employee of the Super J Castries waterfront branch.
Agard’s death occurred sometime around 10:30 p.m. Tuesday night in the vicinity of the Laborie/Soufriere stands while the Limacol Caribbean Premier League T20 cricket match between St. Lucia Zouks and Antigua Hawksbills was in full swing.
Not many people noticed what had occurred as persons tried in futility to revive Agard.
The circumstances surrounding the alleged electrocution are not yet clear.
“He was already dead when they brought him to the medical centre,” a source told St. Lucia News Online (SNO).
Agard was a former police officer and basketball coach of the Canaries Moon River Champs.
He was also a former teacher, cadet corp officer and executive member of the St. Lucia Youth Council.
Meantime, Walter, the 20-year-old from Cabishe, Babonneau resident, went missing on the night of June 26, 2013 when he was reportedly seen boarding a vehicle in Cabishe. His partially decomposed body was discovered at about 5:15 p.m. on Sunday, July 7, 2013 behind a playing field opposite the Babonneau Secondary School.
A post mortem has revealed that Walter died of hemorrhagic shock/respiratory failure as result of incisions to the neck area. No one has been charged for this homicide.
