Police detain alleged ‘vampire’ vagrant killer

A vagrant was found dead near State Insurance in May

Lawmen have detained a person Public Safety Minister Steadroy “Cutie” Benjamin is calling a “vampire.”

The prime minister said the person is suspected of killing several homeless people earlier in the year. There have been about four reports of vagrants found dead throughout 2017.

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.

The police did not provide additional information about the alleged vampire vagrant killer.

  1. Maybe Minister Benjamin should stop having press conferences. At every single one he manages to say something stupid, insensitive or just downright untrue. This one meets at least two out of those three criteria. SMH

    • The man is repeating what the person in custody said to him.. He never said whether he believed it or not,but said its to be investigated.What about that is saying something stupid? Why don’t you and the washed up UPP go find hard work fu do and forget about ever running this place again,it won’t happen in this lifetime. You all are washed up.

  2. So when will the police speak? what are they waiting for Christmas? Why the minister is speaking about this before the police?

  3. I did suspect that someone was killing the vagrant them around town. Naming a few Sean, duckie,t the man at blind school

  4. Did Cutie just say the perpetrator drank his/her victims’ blood? This serious.

    Their blood has some special nutrients in them that is top secret. Do speak law men because this so called “VAMPIRE” might soon change target, and become an overall public threat.

    Say something before the epidemic turns out as a Serial Killer on the loose this Chritmas season when innocent people are out late on the streets to celebrate.
