George disclosed that the children discovered the bodies of Joseph and Jeffrey Ablard when they awoke this morning at around 7. am to begin preparing to attend school.

“When the daughter go and call the mother to prepare something for them to go to school, she see the mother not answering and when she look she see blood and she start screaming,” he said.

According to reports, the couple had been stabbed to death.

George told the Times that his daughter’s ex-boyfriend had sent a message to her threatening that she would be killed once he he was released from prison.

He said the deceased had reported the matter to the police.

Francis Anthony Charles, the step father of the deceased boyfriend, expressed shock at the double homicide.

He described his stepson as a very calm person.

“People talk about their children this and their children that, but he was a very calm person,” Charles told the Times.

Today’s tragedy has pushed to 13, the number of homicides so far for the year.

The double homicide has plunged the community of Tamarind Heights, Active Hill, into mourning.

    I will say it again. You kill somebody for revenge or whatever and then guess what? You will still have bad days. You will still be angry. You will still be sad. You will still have to find a way to make ends meet. You may still get sick and end up in a hospital bed. So what was the point? They are done suffering through life, but here you are still going through it. Please people, let us choose love instead.

        I’m going to assume you misread my comment or meant that for someone else because I don’t get the relevance. Regardless of what is going on wherever, it is better to encourage Love. That is all.

    My heart goes out to the kids who had to witness such an ordeal. These children will need a lot of support, love, guidance so they will not grow up to be bitter and let love take over their heart instead of hate. Such a dread situation. My prayers go out to both families on this tragedy. St Lucia need way more prayers and more peace and love for each other.

    Imagine a report was made to the police. The police can’t be everywhere at the same time right.? So therefore if and only if they had a gun then maybe jus maybe they would survive. Well but only certain people in society allowed to have guns right? So therefore the poor people are defense less. My word.

    Why was he released if he had made such a threat known to the police? These deaths were avoidable. We need the death penalty back. Mercy has dried up.

    These two innocent children have to endure this unbearable emotional hurt because of one man’s selfish and senseless act. I also want to commiserate with the other family members of the two victims of this heinous crime. I’m hopeful that the entire community will rally around these two children to bring back some semblance of normalcy and stability in their lives. The other relatives also need love and support.

    And we wonder why some of our children are so angry and bitter when they have to deal with such difficult circumstances. As an adult I barely know how to cope and now the children are forced into one of most overwhelming realities. God put a hand.

    God is there He has never left.He has no where to go because We belong to Him we are the ones who have left God. We have sold Him to buy others god’s exchange Him for guns, hatred wicked. We have sold Him so that we could be masters of ourselves. These are the results, the consequences

      Preach that again my brethren. Preach that again for the rock hearted infidels to hear.
      God is here, but we have rejected Him and so there can be no love, no joy and no peace.
      Just let St. Lucia accept Him and you will see the difference.
      No God fearing person will think of committing these heartless acts.
