Investigators at the scene of the murder on Sunday.



A post-mortem examination has revealed a 59-year-old man bled to death after being stabbed during a fight in Trois Piton, Castries.

Police officers were called to an altercation on Sunday afternoon and medical staff were unable to save Leonard Felicien.

One man has been taken into a police officer and a local source told WIC News that he is assisting police with their enquires.

This incident is the twenty-first homicide for the year 2017.

‘Killer waved when arrested’

A post-mortem conducted yesterday showed that Felicien died due to loss of blood after a laceration to the left formal artery.

According to unconfirmed reports in the local media, the weapon was a broken bottle.

The same report quotes as eyewitness as saying that the suspect “waved goodbye to people while entering the police van”.
