Police name New Year’s Eve homicide victim


The police have identified the man who died under suspicious circumstances on New Year’s Eve and whose death is now being treated as a homicide.

Police spokesman, Inspector Frankie Thomas, said the victim is 29-year old Kevin Roacher of Herberts.

Thomas said the police at first explored the theory that Roacher had been killed as a result of a traffic accident, but that theory has since been abandoned.

“Based on certain information that has now come to hand, we are treating this as a homicide and the special unit is pursuing the investigation with this in mind. We have certain leads that we are pursuing based on the information at hand.

“We are also awaiting the results of both the medical and forensic as part of their investigation. We are treating this as a homicide and are pursuing the leads as they come to hand,” Thomas reported.

So far, police have only confirmed that Roacher was allegedly shot in the chest.

Roacher was driving a Toyota Corolla in the vicinity of the Sir Vivian Richards Cricket Stadium when he crashed into a bus.

It was soon discovered that the car’s driver had been shot once and a spent ammunition shell was found on the passenger side of the vehicle.

Reports suggest that another man ran from the car following the crash.

Roacher’s death brought the number of homicides recorded in 2022 to 10.

  1. I have been driving on Cross Bronx expwy, 95 n and s, FDR, Sprainbrook pkwy , 278 and other routes from the time I have been coming and living here in New York and them routes sometimes feel like craters. They have been fixing these roads since and still fixing them. Sometimes you be playing dodge ball on some of them when you driving in the so-called Big Apple.

  2. Even a road in Florida was worst than Antigua road. If you were pregnant, I think you would have had an instant abortion
