  1. Wow same area and no one saw or heard nothing? Omg whose next? Yall police need to get out there in plain clothes and stop this bulling crap someone is after the cokemen again this time they ain’t drinking blood… Two harmless men sigh… This is ridiculous and im bragging about how My country so damn safe ahh

  2. Omg! Another Serial Killer on the loose in the Country. Who ever is doing these killing is not going to stop because killing another human being gives you certain feelings of power that just can’t stop naturally. The individual and the Police should know this by now it is one of those vagrants or another person of similar characteristics who roam these areas, the individual is insane and devilish and cops ought to know that, they need a behavioral expert from the FBI or Scotland yard to probe the killings.

    An undercover cop with a body camera would be a great asset for intelligence gathering purposes. I can’t understand for the life of me in 2018 when CCTV is so widely used and should have been used in detecting these crimes, I am beginning to believe that all these cameras around the places are just fakes or the Authorities do not hire competent people with high security clearance to monitor them, stop giving the Police all these things to do they are already stretch enough, civilians and security personnel can do that. I am absolutely convinced that if these cameras were recording those crimes can be solved with them guaranteed, because those deceased do not roam so far away from their comfortable areas or homes.

    If the guy that’s in prison now had not been caught he would have been blamed for all these copycat murders, because that’s what they are. The authorities and law enforcement here may think that these individuals are not too important, but all lives matter, so come on bring in the behavioral profiler, a forensic psychiatrist, Polygraph Examiner and your countless security footage that you all are supposed to have to deal with this before someone of prominence falls victim, so that these less fortunate fellows can rest in peace. Easily solvable crime stop asking people to come forward with information, we will do that on our own in confidence. Do all you Job because that’s what you all are paid to do. No resources huh? well, find it they have families too and they did not deserve to die like that.

    God bless Antigua.
