The victim of a suspected suicide at Caye Manger, Gros Islet has been identified as Kennedy Albert Phillip, 54.
The Taxi driver by profession is reported to have ingested a poisonous liquid about 7.00 am Thursday.
Neighbours reported that he had earlier been involved in an altercation with his wife.
Phillip was taken to hospital where he succumbed.
His older brother, Sylvester Richmond Constantine, told St Lucia Times that the deceased had been encountering marital issues.
“The wife called all of us to talk to him,” Constantine recalled.
The older brother said he tried to speak with Phillip but he would not listen.
Constantine made an appeal to individuals contemplating suicide to speak to others, including priests, pastors, counsellors and friends.
He said his deceased brother had three children.
