Missing Laborie woman found murdered

A 32-year old Laborie woman reported missing since Thursday night was found murdered on Saturday.

The body of Saadia Byron was found roughly 100 yards from her home buried in a shallow grave made of rocks, authorities say.

She was found by a search party made up of relatives and police officers around midday Saturday.

George Nicholas, Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) with Responsibility for Crime Management, confirmed there were marks on violence on the body.

The mother of three appeared to have suffered a violent death. Relatives say her face appeared to have been smashed. A used condom was reportedly found at the scene.

The victim’s cousin, Denver Eugene, said he was searching the bushes near the victim’s home along with police officers and members of the community when he stumbled on the semi-nude body partially buried under a pile of rocks.

Denver Eugene, cousin, points to where the body was found

“When I reach a little distance, I saw the nylon of message (plastic bag of groceries) they say that she was carrying. So I called them and tell them look the message. When I reached higher up I see where they drag the body and I see some stones pile up. When I looked between the stones I see the body. I called them (the police) and they tell me to move away,” Eugene said.

According to reports, Saadia Byron left home on Thursday to attend rehearsals for a graduation ceremony scheduled for the following day.

On her way back, she stopped at a supermarket in Vieux Fort to purchase baby supplies for her cousin.

The last time she spoke to relatives, she was on a bus heading back to Laborie sometime after 8pm.

She was to walk the roughly one mile journey from the main road to her home in a dimly lit, heavily forested farming area in Laborie.

Family members became concerned and raised the alarm when she failed to return home after several hours.

Their fears grew after the missing woman’s personal belongings, including clothing, was found Friday morning.

Police have confirmed that two men are in custody assisting with their investigation into the murder.

“We have two persons in custody who we are questioning. We are not making any connections yet, nor are we dispelling anything,” said ACP Nicholas.

St Lucia Times has learnt that one of the men in custody is well known to the victim and her family.

Chris Byron

Her brother Chris Byron said she had made several reports against him to police.

“He’s always waiting for her in the dark, always grabbing her hands, always attacking her. She made several reports to the police station and again, no police, nobody ever did anything on her behalf until this weekend,” Chris stated.

Saadia Byron leaves behind three children; two girls ages 12 and 15 and a 7-year old boy.

        Comment:God is not in charge of this world… When we pray why do we say “The will be done on Earth as in heaven” The devil are blinding you all and now you wanna blame God. God created us out of love and care, do you think he’d kill us like this. if your answer is yes then why are you still alive.

    It is not so easy Anonymous. Forensics and the law does not work that way. Bad or inferior evidence management practices have seen many a case derailed or collapse.

    Forensic evidence is really circumstantial and subject to strict rules of evidence. So all those who operate in that field must be sufficiently well versed into its proper and legally acceptable handling. if not it can come around and embarrass its handlers and promoters.

    Wow so sad …walking in a dimly lit road is not safe. People should be free to walk but it appears that there are some serious demons masquerading as people walking around in St. Lucia. When you take these facts into consideration you better conduct your business in the day time. In any event, one would have to be possessed by demons to commit such hideous acts….Lord minister to the family and I pray that the murderers be taken off the street for good🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏. Such pain for her children and family….🙏🙏🙏🙏…

    Just today I was watching her picture on FB how her family was asking about her where abouts and now this how could a person commit such an act. Have you no family have you no sisters no mother no children atleast. This is why I say this is no human this is the devil\demon himself walking on this Earth. I mean you did her all of this and left her to die like some stray animal. My heart pours out to the family😔😔😔😔😧😭😭 to her children. After your vagabond violated her you left your nastiness behind . Like really I hope they use this rubber as evidence to nail ur and throw away the keys for good. But don’t worry your karma will soon catch up with you sometimes I just wish like when ur kill somebody in this manner they do come back to haunt your and drive your to an asylum.

    If y’all the government of St Lucia don’t want to bring back hanging then I say their punishment should be….
    Jail the robber
    Rape the rapist in prison
    Rape the child molester
    So once you rape you get rape back if you molest children you get rape ..
    I still think for the people who kill should be hang

    M ycondelances goes out tongue children with out a mom they are still growing up and to know something like that happened to their mom. The guy has no heart to actually treat a mother of 3 kids like this don’t you have females in your family what if that happens to one of them. How would you feel? You’re not a man that’s being an animal we need to put ourself in other people’s shoe they do have a family that’s suffering when you do that to someone. Sometimes you really won’t know when something bad happens to you or any of your family members.

    The number of murders in St Lucia are shocking to me. Where I live in Britain it’s a rural county about the size of St Lucia and there have been 1, maybe 2 murders in the last 10 years. When I read about St Lucia it’s a murder EVERY WEEK. A murder a week has become normal for you Monique. That is very sad.

    How ironic that the deceased victim of murder received a rapid response from Police to her makeshift burial site but no response to her complaints to Police about being stalked whilst she was alive!
    Law enforcement here is as efficient as funeral homes in taking care of the dead victims of crime but seem lethargic in protecting the living from the criminals who have no regard for life.

    so annoying, ladies especially young ladies be very careful the kind of person you get involved with at the beginning it all love love and then after the love turning to hate be very very careful and move out early especially if you see any early form of abuse or threat
    whoever did this to this woman you will get exactly one you deserve
    because you seems don’t have any heart you better repent quickly
    because trust me this is your only hope.

    It is a sad state of affairs in St Lucia when women are being raped and killed. She was killed because she knew her attacker. The trouble now is to find out who the attacker was. People ought to begin caring a bit more for each other. Don’t leave everything to the police. Walk in groups. You do not have to be a relative of a person to look out for that person. Be each other’s keepers. Put aside the petty bickering and protect each other. One woman raped and killed is one too many. Please, put an end to this violence against women and against each other. This saddens me as a St Lucian, a female and a mother. I cringe to think of what will become of her children. And what of the monster who committed that heinous act? Didn’t he too come from a woman? All lives matter. There is too much bloodshed in St Lucia and the price may be too expensive for us to pay. Nature is crying out! The very heavens tremble on account of our murderous, barbaric behavior.Don’t we live in a predominantly Christian society? yet people kill with such impunity. Stop the killing!
