Police investigate burglary, rape, and homicide

Saint Lucia police are investigating a burglary, rape and homicide.

The victim has been identified as 76-year old Rosa Rosemond of Marisule.

She is reported to have been found naked at her home.

A source who spoke to the Times on condition of anonymity recalled seeing Rosemond in her vehicle on Friday.

“One guy was driving and another was in the rear,” according to the source.

The source recalled that Rosemond made a joke as the vehicle drove off.

The men are reported to have been working on her house which reportedly had a leak in the basement.

The  individual recounted observing that  the gate to the victim’s home was locked with a padlock at about 5:30 pm on Saturday without her vehicle being in the yard.

The source told the Times that appeared highly unusual.

The source disclosed that a Security Company had been calling consistently after an alarm in the home of the deceased had been triggered and there was no response.

Law enforcement sources have indicated that Rosemond’s body was discovered at her home yesterday.

It is reported that her home had been burgled about a year ago.

Rosemond lived alone, according to reports.

Her vehicle is reported to have been discovered at the Castries Waterfront.

    So the security company calling the house because the alarm went off and no one have the audacity to actually go to the house to see what’s up because no one is answering the phone. Smh. What a waste of a security company.

        The point the individual is making is that, the security company had been allegedly calling consistently, so instead of continuously calling they could have gone to the house sooner. Which does make sense.

        Who is to say that PARENTS don’t raise their children properly??? People tend to disregard that there are other influences out there that play a part in individuals ‘ life and AS MUCH as may try to shield or protect a child or children from it, somethings are inevitable.

    Sorry but can somebody give me the all time secret to send people and drown themselves. We have had enough. Need something that will work. When two drown the rest will not even think about it. Then that shate will stop. People are tired of living in fear at their own damn homes. The God people will comment yes but whilst you are praying another set will be acting. Time for that shate to stop once and for all.

      The security company should be sued. No reply and no one had the courtesy or professional training to go to the house or send police?
      For all you know if someone had gone there the perpetrator could have been caught and the woman’s life spared?

    Okay if the security system calls, no one answers, no one from comes to see what’s happening because of the way lucians are. Obviously, after 5 minutes the security system should call the police because that’s how all security system works.Anyway, they should already have the police on stand by. Most of the times , I prefer the American security systems because they are more upgraded with security and lawyers and they are more logical.I feel so sorry for the lady’s money…..

    I saw that RED CAR on Friday night at water front with the hazard light on my way to san souci I was really concern, but I drive passed. on my way back 45 minutes later the car was still their. I again was concern someone was inside sick but drove pass it and stop by the market to call the police so their can go take a look. call but didn’t get a response. then I saw a police vehicle pass heading down Jeremie street into bridge street.

    It is sad, a life is lost. I do not know what the Laws are like in St. Lucia when it comes to security companies or what the official policy is. The one thing I know, out here in the US as soon as my alarm goes off the security company calls, not five minutes later, as soon as it goes off. If I don’t respond on the first call the Police is alerted while they try to contact another person who resides at my house to find out whether anyone is at home or if we are OK. If no response the Police is on their way to my house. Simple. Even if I respond, if the security company is not satisfied for any reason, like I can’t give them my code or I do not sound as if I am alright the Police will pay my home a visit. So I can’t understand the point of having a security company if all that will happen is they will keep calling you when clearly you are not responding which is a fair indication something has probably gone wrong. I guess nobody sues anyone in St. Lucia, and perhaps its a financial waste of time to sue anyone unless you have name and status. But over here as fast as you can say Jack Robinson a security company would have a lawsuit for such negligence. But again that is besides the point. As a people we are watching our nation crumble under a wave of crime perpetuated those who are perhaps themselves victims of the very society they prey upon.

    This is Saint Lucia not the USA. The security company does not always do a physical check. I don’t know if they brought this alarm situation to the police’s attention. But what is the point of paying for an alarm system and the security company does not do a physical check. What are we paying for a phone call? People check on your family members, especially when they live alone. And be careful. Sometimes it is the people we know who hurt us. It is the season of festivities. Drink less and be our brother’s keeper more.

    Disgusting bastards! What a shame that these pieces of garbage should engage in such horrible behavior. Much of St. Lucia’s crime problem comes from guns. Many times criminals use guns to force compliance. Unless they change laws to make mandatory long sentencing, the crime problem is not going away. Sad. What’s up with that joke security situation?

    my take is that the red car was parked there for two days straight and it was facing the north meaning they were heading back up north and don’t tell me that lady didnt have friends who knows her vehicle and would call her to find out wat it was doing there. as for the security company sigh no system in place u call that

    Even the police needs to be blame. I saw that car parked with its rear in the road blocking traffic going to the north at about 10pm on Friday night. I drive by again at about 3:30 am going to the flea market and it was still in with hazards on. In reading some of the comments some people spotted it early Friday afternoon. Why didn’t the police go and check it out and use a tow it away and start an investigation as to what happen. The car being there did not help family members in anyway to at least question why would the car be there for that duration. Lord too many questions after the fact.

    When something happens in St. Lucia, more often than not, the first thing one says is “I Blame” who are to cast judgement or blame someone. It is true one needs to held accountable and let’s hope that someone is held accountable. I due offer my sincere sympathy to family and strength to get through this tragic incident. RIP Rosa Rosemond

    We in Saint Lucia have a police force charged with the responsibility for the maintenance of law and oder the protection of life and property and the detection of crime. We have seen an increase in petty and serious crime and nothing is being done to show us that the Police are protecting the lives of our citizens and detecting crimes when they are committed
    I am demanding therefore the resignation of the commissioner of Police as he is incapable of doing the job and get someone who can
