    He over killed himself. He used too much force when he jumped down.

    That is very sad. However even if I am depressed and things are bad I will not take my life. I will go on my knees and put my heart out to the LORD to make my pathway straight. People today no longer have the FEAR of GOD in their lives and therefore the evil side takes control. Deepest condolences to his family.

    Wording is key, with the head next to the body no way should he still be alive, a medical doctor still has to certify death. A suicide?, that one got me

    maybe only the doctor can say that someone is dead..hence he was later pronounced as dead cause I don’t think the doctors be waiting on the scene for the emergency services personnel to arrive.. In this day and age you would think a lot of people can reason….and not question the more than obvious…. The article plainly stated ….. In simple English….that the body was later pronounced dead by a medical practitioner… But the unqualified medical doctors in st. Lucia want to be the ones to make the call…. Go get that degree…. You’ll get there…

    Death 1 month after that of his younger sister. And the best police can come up with is suicide? How many decapitations are the result of suicide? Not many, since it is not that easy. Must be a well thought-of plan by the deceased, or lack of thought by investigators. More likely the latter, since we are not that bright. Life goes on, for others.

    I don’t believe that he would take his own life.But then again not everybody can take pressure,he should have gone down on his knees at put all his problems at the foot of the cross.

    Profound condolences to the relatives and friends of the deceased. How can any decent minded person trivialize the death of another person? Many of the comments are so insensitive. Your hearts have to be saturated with evil. These grotesquely ugly comments only prove that some of us have lost our humanity. This is beast-like behavior. It is absolutely imperative that we show respect to the family of the dead. Don’t you have any sense of decency?

    Jump… Here they lay down as if it’s their bed.

    As per that news report about the suiside in Corinth. Who wrote that?…was high on weed… 1. A decapitated body does not sound like suiside. 2. A doctor had to pronounce the person dead…. 😂😂😂 we have too many doctors in Lucia I see and too much money to waste. Nit to mention time. Imaging a whole doctor have to leave Castries to go to Corinth to pronounce a headless man dead after the police arrived. Or are our police that dom… 😂😂😂 it doesn’t end there. Instead of making mention of a proper investigation of foulplay or suspected murder. They are talking of post-mortem to confirm cause of death. Did the victims own a Guillotine?? was one next to the
    body? 😂😂😂 CANT BELIEVE SUCH A REPORT being published.

    He jumped off the balcony and the rope severed his head (everyone has a theory). What does it matter? He is dead. Family, accept my sympathy. To the rest of you speculators and inspectors it does not need to add up for you. You are not the one mourning his death. Sympathize with the family for the untimely death of their loved one

    My deepest sympathy to the family. I live here and I did not hear such sad news. These are the times we live in.If we make sometime to spend and read the the word of God especially in the Book of Matthew we will see and understand. Again. I say say my deepest sympathy. That person had family and friends.
