Devastated Family Wants Justice After Fatal Shooting Of Candy Tisson


Relatives of Saint Lucia’s latest homicide victim, Candy Tisson, devastated at the news of his violent death, are seeking answers and want ‘the truth’ regarding his violent death.

“We are very devastated, very hurt, broken, sad. I have no words to explain,” the deceased’s sister disclosed.

Noting that Tisson, 40, was ‘sometimes troublesome’, the sister recalled that he was very jovial and the ‘life of the party’ and his family.

“One thing I know is he was not involved in any gang, and he was not involved in any trouble that we know of, so we don’t know why that happened,” the sister stated.

“We want answers. We want the truth and we need justice,” the deceased’s sibling declared.

She explained that Tisson, of Gadette, Dennery, died while on his way from work as a security guard at the Water and Sewerage Company (WASCO) plant at Thomazo.

According to the police, a second male sustained injuries due to Monday’s shooting, to which officers responded at about 9:45 pm.

Saint Lucia has recorded seven homicides, including a fatal police shooting.

  1. Always, “he was a little bit troublesome”. What does that mean? As far as I am concerned, once you hear these words, you know he was trouble.

  2. Over 80 percent of black people are treated like second class citizens earning wages as low as 3 EC dollars an hour yet still they keep voting for politicians who have never done anything for them

  3. Keeping tabs …
    3 women killed at their homes in January
    1 guy from Degazon shot on his bike
    I guy from Jacmel shot in the cemetery
    I guy from Laborie shot by police
    I guy from Gros Islet stabbed & dump in
    the marina
    I guy from Gadette shot in La Resouse

    That adds up to 8 right ?? So how the article says 7 homicides?? I don’t get it !

  4. Stluciatimes there is no such thing as At About. Is either it’s at or about it can never be both. Please correct this in you’ll reporting. Been happening too long. Hope yiu guys are not too big to accept this simple but needed correction. Thanks

  5. @Sac Sal. As the editor of editors, you should have been aware that “you’ll = you will” and “y’all = you all”. Now, go back to school.

  6. @Sac Sel “At About” is proper English.

    You can actually find it in the dictionary:
    “at about”
    : nearly at : ABOUT
    who were arriving at about the same time
    —Thomas Pyles
    paid at about that rate
    —Anthony Trollope
    at about the western border
    —Bernard DeVoto
    at about five o’clock
    —Florette Henri
