  1. Boy oh boy that article reading it I just lost my mind. Whoever wrote this article please go over before you post next time.

  2. Anonymous my sentiments exactly.
    DNA YES BUT NO CAUSE OF DEATH. Could they not determine the cause of death as well?
    I guess we will hear about it next year

  3. Is it me or is it just here in St Lucia that a cause of death cannot be determined because it is always inconclusive. In other developed countries no matter how decomposed a body a qualified pathologist can determine the cause if death.

  4. It’s reasonable to suggest that Omar Defreitas drowned in his car after his vehicle ended up in the canal that tragic January night!

  5. Another inconclusive piece of work and reporting, u av 2 come 2 ur own conclusionđŸ„±

  6. Well i feel very bad for the family of the deceased…. it’s not easy losing a family member and can’t find out how or what he died from maybe someone should go back to medical school….

  7. Some of you just need to get a brain before coming on here to display your level of ignorance. How can a cause of death be determined on skeletal remains!

  8. @Jade I guess you’re too intelligent to comprehend what forensic anthropology is. This just so happens to one of the duties of the medical examiner/forensic pathologist albeit not as in depth as an actual anthropologist.

  9. the lucian police will never solve this crime unless if someone talks. They should bring down some special team to investigate this case.
