Drugs ‘Not Ruled Out’ As Motive In Babonneau Double Homicide

Saint Lucia police have not ruled out drugs as a motive in last week’s double homicide in Babonneau, a senior law enforcement official has said.

The victims were identified as Thorne Sylvaine and Gavin Willie.

“We cannot rule out drugs because there have been a lot of drug issues in the area for the past week,” a law enforcement official told St Lucia Times.

Residents of Boguis, Babonneau, reported hearing gunshots being fired on Friday night shortly before midnight.

On Saturday morning, police received a report of the two bodies being discovered on the ground.

Photos posted on social media showed one of the bodies lying next to a firearm which police said they recovered from the scene.

Saint Lucia has so far recorded three homicides for the year.


  1. Mr. PM, you said crime is too high it must stop “Kenny cannot do it but I can”. What is holding you back? Have you forgotten that you boasted that you can and if elected you will?
    And for the hypocrites that will now come to say don’t politicise crime, you did when you in 2016 accepted Chastanet’s words and voted for him. You all never took a position then that crime should not be politicised. Some of you, yes some of you hypocrites, even repeated the words. So now Mr., Mrs., Miss, Ms. HYPOCRITE don’t tell us that convenient excuse that government cannot stop crime. Chastanet (2016) stated categorically that government can and you believed conveniently. Well now I believe, in keeping with the words of our PM, that government can.
    By the way, hypocrites, your PM still believe that government can because he indicated just recently that government will reduce crime by 30% in a few months. He even said that government was about to reach the target but the medical ship can and interfered with that effort (LMAO).

  2. That Double Homicide have Nothing to Do with Politics .Anytime Persons Get Drugs on the Sea Shore .So called Criminals From all over the Island Comes around to Act as the Owners of the Drugs because they know persons who have it in their posession cannot make a Report to the police when it’s Taken away from them .So that’s the Issue with that Double Homicide .Double Crossing .Betrayal and Stealing Caused this Double Homicide .
