Babonneau Homicide Victim’s Brother Wants Answers


The brother of a man whose body was discovered Wednesday morning at Talvern, Babonneau, is seeking answers regarding the death of Abraham Charles Rose.

The deceased was 63 years old.

Police disclosed that Abraham, also known as ‘Corbeau,’ had a head laceration and a severed left leg.

His brother, David Rose, recalled that a nephew broke the news that Abraham had died.

“When I went there, I saw him dead on the ground. I don’t know who  that did it, who that not did it. I know he was taking his little cocaine. I thought it was that he going to die with,  but they chop him, they burst his head. That hurt me a lot,” David told reporters.

“He would pick coconuts, whatever, go and sell it to smoke his stuff,” David stated regarding his deceased brother.

He told reporters that he and his sibling shared a mutual love, although they did not see each other often.

David described his deceased brother as a ‘good fella.’

However, he said he knew nothing regarding the circumstances surrounding the homicide, the 33rd so far for 2024.

Police have asked anyone with information regarding the incident to share details with the Babonneau Police at 456-4120.

Alternatively, they can provide anonymous tips by dialing 555 (the Crime Hotline) or by using the Royal Saint Lucia Police Force (RSLPF) Crime Hotline Application, which is available at the Google Play Store.

  1. so sad such a humble man , never hurt a soul… may his soul rest in eternal peace and may his kids find comfort ….

  2. The drug addicted people many small minded community ppl call “zorbies” have family too!

  3. He was a seasoned produce teef with the longest rapsheet in St. Lucia. Police need to investigate the farmers he have been stealing from as well as the ppl he sold to.

  4. @Boss, he has that nickname because in the 70’s he was a tall buff fella who was feared and fought alot. In his later years he became alot friendlier, spoke proper English, was constantly incarcerated for breaking and entering, was kind when not on drugs but the stealing was hard to stop. Tete Corbo, was his nickname after he received a bursted head in the late 70s, sad this is the way of his demise!

    He did small odd jobs for some but stole from others. He was loved but equally disliked!

  5. I cannot believe that Homicide happen at Location and no one heard no Noise nor saw no one Unbelievable

  6. Condoléances dear brother…
    Christ is the answer,and one day will bring judgement ⚖️
    I thought in my heart,I have escape, but not free, because the eyes of God is roaming through out the earth..

  7. You never see how thin that the young men in vieux Fort look . Its because they only smoke crack cocaine , weed , drink alcohol and steal jelly coconuts, plantain And marcarbo and come and sell it by the road a bunch of thieves who all they want is fast money
