Saint Lucia police have identified Saint Lucia’s latest murder victim as St Omer Abbott, 62.
Police say they were summoned to his residence at Grand Ravine, Dennery, about 10.00 am Saturday morning where his body was discovered lying in a pool of blood.
There were multiple lacerations on the deceased and what appeared to be gunshot wounds, a law enforcement official told St Lucia Times.
It is reported that a note was found near the body with the message: ‘When u owe u must pay!’
Abbot is said to have been discovered by a relative who went to his home to check on him.
A photo of a male individual lying face down on the blood covered white tiled floor near a stove in a kitchen, has been posted on social media.
Sources told St Lucia Times that there appeared to have been no forced entry into Abbott’s home.
