Decomposing Body Found At Canelles


Police have launched an investigation into the discovery of a decomposing body at Canelles, Vieux Fort, on Saturday.

At about 5:55 a.m., officers received information regarding the presence of the body of a yet unidentified male individual off the Castries-Vieux Fort Highway.

The deceased was in a secluded bushy area.

Police have asked anyone with information to contact them anonymously using the Crime Hotline 555 or the recently launched Crime Hotline App.

  1. @troubling – it is very troubling how reporters are being reported. Apparently, journalism hit rock bottom low in St. Lucia. Here in North American so much info would have been release to the public for assistance in this sort of recovery.

  2. Troubling …
    The report said that the body of a MALE individual was found on Saturday at 5:55 a.m.
    The big question is, is there any evidence of violence? The deceased could have suffered a stroke or heart attack and collapsed while walking to the beach.

    Police reporting in St Lucia needs to be improved. That said, this is not a good way to go, alone in the bush. May his soul rest in peace.

    i agree it missing some information but didnt you read it said that “it was the body of a yet unidentified male individual”

  4. Additional description would be helpful! What type of clothing was noted on the body –jeans, shorts, black or red T-shirt? Approximately what age does the body appear to be–20, 50, 80? Dreadlocked, short hair, or bald-headed? Teeth missing, or full set of teeth? Come on, police officers and journalists–you can do better than this poor level of reporting!!

  5. I heard on another report from HTS that the body was found in a location where stolen vehicles are stripped. I think that is a clue as to what may have happened to the individual. Take it from there officers and treat it as a homicide until there is sufficient evidence to prove otherwise.
