To date, police have no “conclusive” motives for the killings of Victor Chard Wilson and Cheryl Clarke, Acting Assistant Commissioner in Charge of Crime and Intelligence, Milton Desir, has said.

Desir said a number of persons were assisting police with the two homicide cases, but police have yet to identify a suspect or arrest anyone.

He made it clear that the persons who were being questioned in connection with the homicides were not suspects. However, the crime chief said the investigations are still being carried out.

When St. Lucia News Online asked Desir if he believes the killings were gang-related, he said the police have no conclusive motives at this time, but are exploring every possible lead.

Wilson and Clarke were St. Lucia’s 11th and 10th homicide victims, respectively.

Wilson, 26, of Bocage, Castries was shot in Wilton’s Yard (also known as The Graveyard) at about 5:20 a.m. on Saturday, July 4. He  reportedly ran and collapsed on Chisel Street in front the Hair Factory store. He was pronounced dead at 6:10 a.m. at Victoria Hospital. Police said he sustained gunshot wounds to the neck.

Clarke, 51, of Bexon, Castries but lived at Wilton’s Yard, was shot multiple times a few minutes after midnight on Friday, June 26, 2015 at the intersection of Broglie and Brazil Street, Castries, shortly after leaving a bar (upstairs Starlite) where she had reportedly been “playing the game machines”.

She died two to three hours later while reportedly undergoing surgery at Victoria Hospital. A post mortem revealed that Clarke died from hemorrhagic shock due to multiple gunshot wounds to the abdomen.

Police discovered an abandoned vehicle with a bullet hole in the driver’s door and bullet holes in the driver’s seat at the scene of the shooting.

Clarke’s husband Asher ‘BJ’ Emmanuel, 48, of Bexon, Castries but was living at Wilton’s Yard, was fatally shot on the morning of April 7, 2015 at the Chaussee Road/Leslie Land intersection. Jamie Butcher, 22, of Rose Hill, Castries was charged with his murder.

Her brother, Arthur ‘Afoo’ Clarke, was gunned down in Chase Gardens, Castries on January 27, 2011 as he exited his vehicle. He was 48.

  8. But not only those two murders. The string of unsolved murders here must be staggering. Even as they cannot give up, that over used line of police are investigating is now like a road march tune. Our police are really constrained by a multitude of serious issues which has to be impacting on their performance.

    Now in 2015 is bed bugs and no computers. This is a big choke. Mr Desir ask La Corbs two things for immediate effect. Fix the CCTV and open the forensic lab. That tells you how serious the authorities are

  9. THE KILLERS OF THESE PEOPLE ARE STILL WALKING AROUND THE GENERAL POPULATION. ARE THEY GOING TO KILL AGAIN? WHAT IS THE RATE OF CRIMES BEING SOLVED BY THE POLICE? CAN OUR POLICE READ? ARE THEY AMONG OUR SMARTEST OF USUALLY FROM THE SUBSET OF KIDS WHO USUALLY SIT AT THE BACK OF OUR CLASSES AT SCHOOL? WHY CANT OUR COPS SLING TWO COHERENT SENTENCES TOGETHER? WHERE IS THE POLICE COMMISSIONER? SOME OF OUR LAWMEN WERE ACCUSED OF MURDER...IS IT COMMON IN OUR SOCIETY THAT PERSONS DEEMED CULPABLE FOR CRIMES BE ALLOWED TO NOT ONLY WALK OUR STREETS, BUT CARRY FIREARMS? IS ST. LUCIA A MADMAN'S PARADISE?
