  1. I can remember this government promised that mental health will be a priority and the building of a new psychiatric hospital.

  2. Deepest condolences to his family. I cannot begin to imagine what they must be going through, especially his mother.

  3. Lord the experts now start. Internet Psychologist will be at play. Of any yes the detectives to. And of course we cant leff out the likkle politics.

  4. I know for a fact that every single person in the world has a mental health issue, so am just saying that ignorance is no excuse in my law, I rather go to jail, than end up in the cemetery for any human, animal, place or things.

    • there is a thin line between sanity and insanity, we are all insane never allow any human to take away your life with the excuse of mental issue .covid had even compounded these disorders, we all have eating disorders,mood swings, stress ,depression,anxiety,addictive behaviours . it is ironic that most of the latest homicides are all attributed to mental illness.should people with so called mental illness be allowed to integrate into the society?what are the factors making some so violent? are these side effects of drugs administered to these critical patients?can this psychosis be linked to a deeper spiritual root problem as we just seem to only be reacting to the sympthoms. Is the majority of ppl displaying these disorders rather possessed with some evil energies than just an exhibition of imbalances in the mental faculties?just too much delusions and hallucinations and the approach must be a wholistic solution.

  5. ‘Apparently’ a person with mental health challenges… Let’s see where the investigation leads.
    Very sad for the family and friends of the victim.

    Antigua becoming unsafe – and low crime solving rates don’t build the public’s confidence.

  6. …#Circumstances #Matters in the commission of a crime, or the act of committing a crime.
    The question becomes, what led up to those circumstances causing one to act out their feelings.

    The #Mental #Anger which is running rampant in the culture is now morphing into the #physical #anger easier and easier.

    Gird your loins…..

  7. My Condolence to the family So Sadden . Bring back capital punishment . Please donโ€™t blame mental illness.
