Consular officials are in contact with Saint Lucia authorities to gather ‘additional information’ relating to the slaying here of Canadian national, Nicole Demptser, 34.
CBC News quoted spokesperson for Global Affairs Canada, Jason Kung, as making the disclosure in an email.
According to CBC News, Kung offered condolences to the family and friends of the slain Canadian citizen and explained that consular services are being offered to the victim’s family.
He said because of the Privacy Act, the consulate could not provide further information.
Nicole Dempster was found dead at her Beausejour, Gros Islet residence on Sunday night.
A post mortem report said she died as a result of ‘blunt force trauma to the head.’
On Monday, police arrested a male suspect at Bexon in connection with the Canadian national’s death.
The police have since charged Gros Islet resident, Rohan Girard, with murder.
According to law enforcement officials, Girard was charged Thursday afternoon under section 85 (b) of the criminal code of Saint Lucia.
