UPDATE: Woman killed after ‘Happy birthday’ text

Thirty-one year old Sophia Edwards was murdered on her birthday today, shortly  after receiving a text wishing her a happy birthday, a residents of Ciceron has disclosed.

Edwards is alleged to have been stabbed  by her common law husband some time after noon today.

A male eyewitness, who was around when the incident occurred, told the Times that the deceased was choked and stabbed.

According to the eyewitness, Edwards and the father of her children had an argument this morning over a text message she had received wishing her a happy birthday.

The eyewitness said the message also read :’I miss you.’

“I feel he read the message and he end up telling the girl : ‘Your other man that send that for you. Your other man that texting you there.'” the eyewitness stated.

He disclosed that Edwards started crying.

According to him, the woman later took a plate of food for the stepfather of her common law husband and went into her room.

The eyewitness said he saw the alleged assailant come out from a the shop, enter the woman’s room.

“The girl was on the bed and he just jump on the bed and start stabbing up the girl. He cut up the girl throat and thing. When I heard the girl screaming, I just rush in the room and I just pull him off the girl but he had time stab up the girl already,” he said.

He said as the wounded woman lay bleeding on the bed, her attacker ran out of the room.  

(Blood-soaked bed)                                                     (House where stabbing occurred)

The victim died later at hospital.

The eyewitness revealed that Edwards and the man who allegedly attacked her had two young children together and had been in a romantic relationship for the past eight years.

He described the relationship between the couple as a bad one.

“Like the girl was planning to move on him,” the eyewitness explained.

He said the two had an argument about two weeks ago when the victim started taking her belongings out of the house to leave.

But the eyewitness observed that the two made up afterwards.

      I bet 90% of the comments are from women…Its sad that a woman was killed but i realise that women create such an uproar when a man kills a woman but stay quiet when its the opposite way around…women have gained the equal status with men that they have fought for…so why this feminist cult when women are victim…yall wanted equality meaning being treated the same…so i think that includes equal jail time for murder and not reduced time cause of gender…and for the most i believe some feminists are power seeking h o e s….

        Seriously what does that have to do with what happened??? You find more men cheating than women. Anyway, She could have taken the day off from work and one of her girlfriends sent the text cause she was missed at work. There nowhere in the report which says the text came from a man.

      So sad but u know what everyone has problems but its based on the magnitude of the situation in that relationship.Too many times men kill themselves because so much they do for those women and in turn they take men for granted yet its we men who makes things harder for other men by fucking their wives ..girlfriends …common law wives and so on…With that said am in a situation similar to this one and to be quite frank am not too far myself cause these women think that we dont love but we do thé thing is we don’t know how to let go….
      at times in thèse instances what our mind tell US to do is thé solution but it has to.be a positive answer to thé.problem i don’t like what happened but when someone ils decietful thats end.result in some relationship….i hope thé children father knows hé had a rôle to play ..his time has passes hé should hv moved on and allow thé stepfather to play his rôle ..

Cheating is not the end of the world. I would more like to know why my woman cheated on me and with who. So i can step up my game.

      The violence in St. Lucin is really getting out of hands, Plain and simple ignorance. When a person is to ignorant to express his emotion with word, he regresses to his primal instincts. This kind of violence happens a lot in this country, Education is key in solving this problem.

        March 5, 2017 at 9:34 pm

        This is just it… conflict management…ignorance… pride…pure stupidity. As a woman I could say…hey look again violence against another woman….he should be strung up or shot on the spot…too common place…educate …evil…etc.. etc. People need to realize that they don’t own people. If the relationship was bad one needs to move out and on. If there are children involved work together to bring them up peaceably. He will get life in prison mentioned and the children have no parents to look after them. A moment if madness…no a moment of evil. God will have the last word.
        Sad but avoidable situation.

      You see men are naturally insecure and very low self esteem. I’m a man telling the truth. We always feels we need to be in power. Even we men in government and or business owners. I’m 40 and now understand who I am. I use to be very macho and realize I actually was a looser. Although I’m still armed but not dangerous but have a mission to giving women protection and advise on how to be independent. The problem in St Lucia is two fold. The government is mostly disconcern about betterment on life but just securing their seat and families is loosing strength and values. Hear me out. The government part is very self explanatory. In terms of the family, we need to get back to the basics. When was the last time you had a family reunion, call a struggling relative(s) to say hi or offer a hand discreetly or apologized for gossip or whatever went wrong? Remember this is not just a St. Lucian problem is a social problem. We need to rebuild our family values and get back to the basics. I understand that technology have encouraged us to stay in touch digitally but we are talking about physical abuse and physical violence. So the only way to defeat such thing is one’s physical presence. We can sit there and type all we want or blame the government all day. The true is if we build our family structure then communities stronger with trust and togetherness we then fully vote in a government to embrace our values on which we’ve built. You see, the politicians like to have some negativity to campaign on to gain your vote. I know, I’m typing currently but I also practice such good family values and strength. I don’t have kids in school but sponsor my relatives kids to school. I buy uniforms, call to say hi, ask the hard questions like is he treating well etc. wake up me people and leaders. We are loosing St. Lucia. Our country is still very young and have plenty of opportunities but until we clean up the violence we can’t move to the summit.

    Too much killing in St Lucia. Change the story. Hateful thoughts manifest hateful things. Love breeds love. Every bulletin, newsflash, – even keeping tab of quaterly, yearly, deaths occurances-sends out the wrong vibrations. Our children are growing with the belief this is how we solve issues- untimely death is normal. Anger is a natural response. No! It isn’t. Be slow to anger!! Change the story. Change your story.

    St Lucians need to be educated: killing one another is not the answer to the problems you have. There was no regard for the other person’s life and certainly no thought of the children needing their mother. It’s just a me, me, me attitude and that kind of behaviour is far too prevalent in society. This is a horrible and extremely selfish person.

    Cheating or not she didn’t deserve to die. The lesson here is people are unpredictable and are savages capable of horrendous act of violence. If you’re in a relationship try to be faithful, if you’re contemplating on cheating, then I’ll advice you to end the relationship preferably in the presence of a family member or close friend. Betrayal is not that easy to get over; it often makes people vindictive. If you are in a common law relationship respect is important, going outside of the relationship is not okay, stop thinking it is. The world isn’t idle and people are not always civilized.

    I don’t agree with a person taking another life but our safest days in saint Lucia was when operation restore confidence was alive. I also agree on hanging. We need to do something to help save our country. It is getting worst day by day and with mutual respect and communication in a relationship stuff like this don’t happen.

    Mister Prime Minister! With all due respect, the crime situation has reached epic proportion and it cannot go on like this anymore. We the people of this fair Helen, are humbly requesting that you find a solution to this cancer right away! This evil cannot continue to manifest itself in this once peace loving country. Our citizenry both here and abroad are appealing to you and your cabinet ( on both sides) to address this epidemic. Something has gone fondermentally wrong with our ppl and their methods of solving conflict and it has nothing to do with Satan or juju. In my humble opinion, our leaders has become too complacent and those who have the mandate to make the changes and speak on our behalf are still playing politics and unfortunately are still in champagne mode. Elections are over!! We need to stop the mapreezaying, stop the name calling, stop going in reverse digging up the past. We are aware of what has happened in the past! We don’t need to be reminded of it. Instead, let us come together and find a solution to this shameful mess that we have found ourselves in. Mr. Prime Minister! The ball is in your court, find a way to clean up this mess before going outside to invite investors be they business men/women or tourists. Sir, The clock is ticking and we are running out of time.

      Well said. True. I just posted that we should consider public executions. I’m a peaceful man but very well armed every day. I’ve noticed the world was more at peace when we had more dictatorships. Look at what’s going on around us. If the government is not a governing part of our lives, we loose our society to such crimes and violence. I oppose such leadership but as I grow older I realize why such leadership is necessary in some situations for a period of time. Look at a place like Iraq. Violence use to be a life sentence but now it’s the norm. Wake up people and leaders. We are loosing our beautiful little island St. Lucia to crime and government negligence. I have a business abroad and I refer many tourists to our country. Lately those referred opted out of visiting St. Lucia due to small theft crimes their friends suffered on their trips. So we loose bananas and slowly loosing tourism. Wake up my people. Wanna see what we can get back to? Take a trip with me to Singapore. I am a UWP supporter and loves the SLP spirit.

    The family is the fundamental unit of society. We as families need to go back to the drawing board. Crime in our society is a consequence of broken families. One is of the view that if family values are restored, then society will be restored as well. Where are the sociologists in st lucia? Society is depending on you.

    Some women need to realise that if a relationship has not worked before then it won’t work now. Too many times we settle because we are afraid of being alone or think there is not better out there. We tend to look at the quantity not quality in a relationship. Another problem is there seemed to be lack of anger management so people snap. How does the prime minister comes into this; he doesn’t because he couldn’t ever predict that some jealous boyfriend would stab his woman to death. But the woman did. And she did nothing but returned to the person who she according to George had a bad relationship.

    Why do we keep messages on our phones, especially when we know that other people have access to the phones? Why can’t we read the message and press the “delete” button ? And why don’t we insist on having our privacy? People in relationships have absolutely no right to “go into” each other’s phones. Period. Sometimes we “love” too much and we forget that, in the final analysis, we are individuals with a right to privacy. This episode is, indeed, fortunate, but let us all learn from it.

Cussing each other and desecrating each other’s opinion or views is not helping either. We’ve forgotten the great command of our Christ. Love one another. LOVE just be nice- the Bible says ‘give and it will come back to you in good measure …..” We so miss out on the Kings and Queens we are we should offer worship to one to the other. In this period of Lent take time to quiet your spirit ask the Lord to heal you heal the land, the disappointments, the broken, the poverty, the lack of United Spirits. Open your hearts – give the resurrected Lord and King a chance to use you as a vessel an instrument to heal this Wonderful Helen of a nation of OURS.

    I wish to convey my heart-felt condolences to the family and friends of the victim. It’s mind boggling to read some of these preposterous and insensitive comments. Some of which defy common sense. Truly RIDICULOUS! No one person nor political party can stop crime. It takes the collective efforts of the entire society to reduce or eradicate criminal activities. However, as crime escalates to unacceptable levels, it is very disconcerting that no national address has been made by the PM. His silence is quite deafening. This address could be done to assure the citizens and residents that no effort would be spared to curtail all criminal activities. Reassure the citizenry that all criminals will be hunted down and justice will be served. Every citizen should assist. If you see something, say something. Peace!

    This is so sad that situation like this keep happening. Most women stays in abusive relationship because they are scared, if they leave the man will come after them. All abusive relationship need to be reported and act upon by the law. Too many women are leaving in prison in their own home and most of the time its because they have children…..men/women if you are in an abusive relationship that means there is no love, love don’t abuse. When God is not the center of the home anything can happen.

    Reason for a second murder this year over texting is because the girl who stabbed her boyfriend is still breathing and living! Its time for the death penalty, electric chair, hanging is brought back into existence…those bad minded criminals would think twice before going as far as murder. St. Lucia please come together and ensure these criminals, murders are handled differently and in a timely manner. This is not what anyone need in their lives not to be killed because its time to quit a relationship! Please bring back the death penalty! Electrocute the bastards once they are caught and found guilty no sense in having them back in society…

    you see the thing is we beat our boys so badly that when they grow up , hiting a woman becomes just as easy. we encourage men to beat their women when they cheat. it is like a norm. if a woman cheap, then it is ok to beat, abuse and murder her. most if us even say that she should not have done this or that , or she would be alive. the truth is only God has authority over human life. the dogs, the sub humans that go out there and kill women should be treated as they are. look at the man that killed his ex girlfriend and her partner. these criminals, these sub humans will not stop. they will kill, maim and destory regardless of what we say and do to them. my take- call in their families when they are caught, and let the families know that we no longer need that creature amongst us- then we execute them. simple.

    Men, Women, walk away!!! When the clouds of hurt and pain from a man or woman you love or are obsessed with has you in a dark place, walk away!!! none of it is worth it!!! The sun will shine on you again if you walk away. Just know that the almighty put 7 billion people on this planet. There will be someone else in your future if your current relationship doesn’t work out. The clouds will surely pass and the sun will shine again, it always does!!! Walk away from anger and violence, walk away from pain. Time is the cure, and when you look back on it you can smile and say thank God I’m alright!!! The seed of violence and murder has been planted in our lives thru movies, television and imitation of what we see around us. Don’t fall victim to the seed of evil you’ll lose everything. Walk away!!!
