A senior citizen was found dead Wednesday evening in a house at Pavee where he lived alone, neighbours have reported.
The deceased has been identified as Albert St Pierre, 69.
One neighbour told St Lucia Times that the deceased apparently had a problem with his heart and was always complaining about his chest.
‘Every morning around after eight, we pass there – we shouting him because that’s my son good friend. So we calling him – ‘Albert! Albert! Albert!’ This morning we passed minutes to nine and we not hearing him, so I find that strange,’ a male who lives nearby recalled.
He said he concluded that St Pierre had gone into the City.
But the neighbour disclosed that it was after 5 pm and St Pierre did not respond to persons calling for him outside his home and knocking on his door.
He said that as a result, he entered the home of the deceased through the unlocked door and found the senior citizen lying on the floor near his stove.
Persons in the area told St Lucia Times they do not suspect foul play in the death.
