Police Say Oliver Gobat Murder A Cold Case

Saint Lucia police have announced that the April 2014 murder here of Oliver Gobat is a cold case.

“We hope to revive quite a number of cold cases before this year is out,” Assistant Police Commissioner Wayne Charlery told a news conference Thursday morning.

Charlery explained that a cold case is not dead.

“A cold case is the investigative process would have little or no leads to go on and therefore you need something happening to re-energise this case,” he told the news conference.

However Charlery said once leads are being followed and responses to requests are being awaited, the case is alive and well.

Oliver Gobat, 38, was found dead in the passenger seat of his car.

The businessman – whose parents live in Surrey – was  reportedly shot twice in the head before his Range Rover was set alight.

At the time, British media reports quoted Saint Lucia police sources as saying that the death bore all the hallmarks of a professional killing.
