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.
