Police are investigating two stabbings at Bordelais Correctional Facility (BCF) which occurred on Saturday, even as they continue a probe into the deaths of two inmates last week.
In connection with Saturday’s incident, investigators received a report about 7:30 a.m. indicating that inmates Shodeus Clement and Jason Polius sustained stab wounds at the facility.
Clement sustained injuries to his chest area, knee, arm and foot, was treated at the Dennery hospital and later transported back to the facility, officials say.
Polius, on the other hand, sustained injuries to to his arms, shoulder, and elbow was treated in hospital and also transported back to the BCF.
The latest stabbings occurred as police continue their investigations into the deaths of prison inmates Noah Peter, 21, and 45 year old Kelvin Wilson, also known as ‘Carlos’ or ‘Goats’.
Noah Peter was stabbed on Wednesday by another inmate and died Saturday morning about 3:00 a.m. at St Jude Hospital.
Peter had been at the BCF for stealing and ‘intentional wounding’, was discharged in relation to the wounding matter on May 20, 2020, but later readmitted for the offence of stealing, official sources say.
On Thursday morning about 9:00 a.m. Kelvin Wilson was found unresponsive in an ‘individual cell’ in the maximum security Delta Unit and later pronounced dead by a medical practitioner.
Investigators told St Lucia Times he appeared to have been stabbed with a ‘piece of fencing’.
Wilson had been admitted to the BCF on April 15, 2003, after being charged with murder.
However, officials said he had been declared ‘mentally unfit’ for trial and was behind bars at the ‘court’s pleasure’.
