The sister of suspected drowning victim, Augustina Lionel, is seeking answers regarding the death of the teenager.
Ashaski St Rose, who said she was the eldest sister of the deceased, told St Lucia Times that she was at home Sunday when someone came bearing the sad news that the eighteen year old had died.
St Rose said she rushed to the scene at Vieux Fort but was informed that the body had already been taken away.
Law enforcement officials are investigating reports that the deceased was aboard a kayak that capsized about 5.00 p.m on Sunday but she failed to make it to shore.
The sister of the deceased explained that Lionel was not a swimmer.
Two other persons who were with Lionel at the time of the incident are among persons being interviewed by the police, law enforcement officials have disclosed.
“I’ve heard a lot, but I don’t want to repeat what they say. I don’t know if it’s true – I don’t know if it’s not true,” the sister of the deceased told St Lucia Times.
“I want some answers,” St Rose explained.
She revealed that a post mortem examination is scheduled for Tuesday.
