Police Probe Another Suspected Drowning In Laborie


Saint Lucia police are investigating a suspected drowning in Laborie, the second such probe within a few days.

On Monday, November 20, 2023, at about 11:10 a.m., Laborie Police Station officers launched an investigation into a suspected drowning at Laborie Bay.

The identity of the deceased is unknown.

Amid that probe, the police learned on Wednesday morning that a man’s body was floating in the water near the Laborie jetty.

Laborie residents said the deceased was a former police officer who suffered from seizures.

In addition to that latest suspected drowning at Laborie, Marine Police recovered a body from the sea in the North of the Island on Wednesday morning.

Investigators believe the deceased might be a suspected drowning victim who went on a fishing expedition on a beach at Cap Estate, Gros Islet.

Officers launched a probe into that matter on Sunday.

The police have appealed to the public to contact the Laborie Police Station at 456-3645, the Gros-Islet Police Station at 456-3830, or the Crime Hotline at 555 to provide any information to assist with the investigations.

  1. Suspected drowning? How you all know they drowned and not dumped? Cap estate seems to be a haven for mysterious things happening.

  2. Sap – this is why is called a suspected drowning. It will remain so until an autopsy is done to confirm the cause of death.
