Man Hacked to Death in Vieux Fort

Man Hacked to Death in Vieux Fort

A former employee of the Bordelais Correctional Facility believed to be in his 30’s was hacked to death this morning at Belle Vue, Vieux Fort.

The deceased has been identified as Oswald Downes, a father of two.

According to reports, Downes was attacked by 4 men in the early hours of this morning.

He is suspected to have been the victim of an ongoing feud between some persons from Belle Vue and Pierrot, Vieux Fort.

Downes was formally a prison officer at BCF, but is reported to have resigned to apply for the post of accountant from which he is reported to have been dismissed.

It is reported that he was at the jouvert celebration when he was attacked.

One Vieux Fort resident described the attack on Downes as a massacre. “You don’t even slaughter animals like that,” the resident said.

    We seem to have lost it. It is inconceivable that this would happen in a civilised country. Something`s got to give. We cannot continue this way.

      We (as a society) don’t only “seem” to have lost it; we have definitely LOST it! It’s also sad that those in authority, leaders and decision makers, seem mute or utter only lame and sparse words in response. We have lost it at the personal and national levels. We have neither national direction nor self-respect. Our christian values are awry. This type of behavior has become the norm in Fair Helen until….
