St Vincent Family Court counsellor killed, body found in backseat of vehicle

Police in St Vincent have detained one person for questioning after the body of a counsellor at the Family Court was found in her car in Buccament Bay, on the outskirts of the capital on Sunday.
Police said that Luann Roberts’ death brings to three the number of murders committed so far during the long holiday weekend.

Police believe that Roberts may have been killed elsewhere and her body transported to Buccament Bay as they investigate reports that a man had assaulted a woman in Richland Park, northwest of the island.

Robert’s body was found in the back seat of her car which was parked about 100 feet from the perimeter wall of Buccament Bay Secondary School and one resident said the car was not in the area when he went to the beach shortly after 6:00 am on Sunday.
A man said to be the main suspect left the scene in the backseat of a police vehicle, sandwiched between two officers.

Roberts’ death follows that of Kishroy Duke, 24, and Vandyke Duke, 42, of Choppins on Friday and Saturday, respectively. Both men died after being shot.

Media reports indicate that an altercation broke out during a football match between Glen and Choppins, at the Calliaqua Playing Field, the regional capital of East St George, in which all three communities are located.
As a result of the altercation, the referee called off the game, but as the Choppins team was making their way home sometime after 8:00 pm, gunfire rang out in Golden Vale, leaving Vandyke dead on the spot.

Kishroy was transported to the Milton Cato Memorial hospital where he died on Saturday.

The Labour Day weekend killings bring to 11 the number of homicides in St Vincent and the Grenadines so far this year.
