  1. There is never justification for taking a life. If this man has been hustling selling stuff in his van then whoever committed this vile act should have walked with a bag and sell his own stuff. It appears to me that ambition in St Lucia is met with resentment and murder just because there are those who are much too lazy and lack the verve to use the constructive part of their brain to provide for themselves. This is so wrong on so many levels! Whoever did this needs to be apprehended and made to face the consequence. Somebody must have witnessed this crime so I hope they come forward.This is becoming quite disconcerting that in a small island like ours it is so difficult to apprehend perpetrators of such horrendous acts. Come on now!

  2. Is there a way to give information without identifying yourself ? If not i can see why people are not willing to information due to fear for their safety
