A Laborie farmer is dead as a result of a suspected suicide early Sunday morning.
A relative identified the deceased as Mc Kenis Bertin, 41, also known as ‘Cashie‘.
The relative told St Lucia Times that Bertin had in the past talked about taking his own life and had even attempted to do so last year when he consumed a corrosive substance, but survived.
But Sunday morning his body was found hanging in a greenhouse near the family home, it was reported.
According to information, a rope that was used to tie a dog was found around his neck.
A family member recalled having spoken to the deceased on many occasions, but disclosed that Bertin would always indicate that he had no problems and everything was alright.
