Police Investigate Report That A Boulder Crushed A Soufriere Man To Death


Police are investigating a report that a falling boulder crushed a 37-year-old Soufriere man to death while he worked on his farm at Fond St. Jacques.

The police received the report at about 11:45 am on Wednesday.

Resident points to boulder

Family members identified the deceased as Hilroy Pierre Louis, also known as ‘Big Show’, a father of two.

According to relatives, the hardworking family man was passionate about farming.

They disclosed that he went to his farm at about 7:00 am on Wednesday.

But the relatives recalled that they summoned a neighbor to look for him when he failed to return at around 10:00 am.

The neighbour brought the family the tragic news that a boulder had crushed Hilroy.

The family suspects that the boulder came down due to intermittent rainfall that loosened the soil.

One family member told St. Lucia Times that the death was a considerable loss.

According to the relative, the 37-year-old was a hardworking man with big dreams.

In addition to his passion for gardening, the deceased worked as a chef and bartender at an establishment in Delcer, Choiseul.

His relatives said they would sorely miss him, and it would take a long time to come to grips with his tragic death.
