The Ministry of Ministry of Equity, Social Justice and Empowerment, which has oversight of the Boys Training Centre (BTC), says it is cooperating fully with law enforcement officials in their investigation into the death of a senior citizen.

Police have charged a fifteen-year-old BTC ward with murder in the death of 78-year-old Marcellina Alexis.

The boy is from Vieux Fort.

In a statement on Friday, the Ministry reiterated its position of full cooperation and disclosure, even as it seeks to protect and secure the image and reputation of the BTC and  wards in its care.

The Ministry observed that over the years, the BTC had made tremendous strides in providing a safe haven and rehabilitating pivot for scores of male wards who run afoul of the law.

And the Ministry promised a more detailed statement as full details emerge.

Marcellina Alexis was found at her home last month with a stab wound to the neck.

Emergency responders from the Gros Islet fire station went to the woman’s Massade, Gros Islet residence after receiving a distress call but discovered that she exhibited no vital signs.

The fifteen-year-old charged in connection with her death has been remanded in custody.

  1. @STONE COLD…. and we also need to start to look within ourselves for what exactly is causing these actions. I once recall when I was in an argument with my Landlord about a lock for the front door when I realize a lock gives a a false sense of security… then I thought deeper that if even a thief wanted to break into the apartment that lock wouldn’t stop them, yes it may deter them but the possibility is still there.. so we need to start thinking and taking action for our own behaviour thoughts and words too believe it or not. The homes and our values its time we need to revisit those and starting asking some serious questions. Then work on the solutions the BTC am sure has their fair share of problems and I am 100 percent that if most of us given the opportunity to work there, we probably wouldn’t last one day maybe a few hours….
    Its time to bring back our values and Morals to align them with what we want to see happening in the world not just what we think should be happening.
