  1. @Oh Really., guess you are the murderer. They said a drowning victim but you are hopeful that it is a homicide to put the lie to the PM smfh.
    Its your country that you wish bad

  2. @Vanguard, Please Read again, the article speaks about two victims and states “suspected drowning”, and an autopsy has not been completed so you do not know what caused this incident. Also my point was based on the PM comment about “25 days without a homicide”. The ministers keep making these comments after such a short period of time, this is not a new trend in homicides.

    @Uh-huh, What does my comment have to do with Chas ? Stop kissing your party’s @$$.

  3. St Lucia times you can’t put comments questioning the narrative. Two people drowned. Same time. What a coincidence! U people in those news places lack brain cells and critical thinking skills. Most likely both murdered and dumped to make it look like a drowning. These fellas know that police don’t investigate in those islands and they can get away with those things. Likely not a Lucians this time
