St. Lucia police have begun investigations into the discovery of the body of a security guard at the Vieux Fort Comprehensive Secondary School (V.F.C.S.S.) located in La Resource.
According to reports, the deceased was discovered early this morning around 6:00 by a care taker and another guard.
As a result, education authorities took a decision to temporarily suspend classes to facilitate police investigations and to prevent persons converging on the scene.
Part of the school compound has been cordoned off by investigators.
An education official who spoke to the Times would not be drawn on whether foul play was suspected.
The official said that this would have to be determined by the police.
Despite having made an announcement of suspension of classes, some students who apparently did not get the information turned up for school today and were asked to return home.
