Benjamin did not give the name of the supect nor whom he/she is suspected of killing; but the person is thought to be vagrant themself.
“There is a person in custody at the moment who like the days of the vampire, I beleive their (the victims) throats would be slashed and blood drank,” Benjamin said without giving aditional details.
Prime Minister Gaston Browne said every single life is important, even the life of a vagrant.
He said “a deranged person…would have taken out a few vagrants earlier in the year.”
Browne was at the time speaking to the question of crime at his end of year news conference.
