  1. WHO SUSPECTED SUICIDE?

    From an investigative approach, all ‘…Sudden or deaths where the ‘…cause or causes are not known,’ are treated as a ‘…possible murder.’

    This is so until the contrary is proved. That has been law enforcement training and approach.

    Investigators know that they shall not readily jump to conclusion. For what they may erroneously presumed to be ‘…Suicide’ had often turned out to be ‘…murder.’

    Invariably, in relationships that became ‘…strained or rocky,’ a ‘…jealous or overly possessive or violent husband/boyfriend’ immediately becomes ‘…prime suspect.’

    • Based on your last sentence, are you saying that “men can’t tek knuckle”? D. Gisele Isaac wrote a piece about that leading up to the 2014 general elections. No wonder the UPP lost heavily.

  2. When are we going to stop letting these criminal Jamaicans flood our country? This is supposed to be the nation of Antigua, not Jamaica. I really don’t understand why Antigua is a member of CARICOM, which is a total joke organization.

    • Condolences to her loved ones. I can only begin to imagine the pain and heartache, the unanswered questions, the “why?”

      I am so sorry for your loss.

      • Good question, Clearly he/she can’t see above their agenda and feel empathy for the Jamaican victim who it now seems was killed by an Antiguan cop. Story is the cop, prior to this alleged murder, was on suspension for another crime it was thought he had committed.

      • For real, no one said a jamaican comitted no crime….. That was not nice at all. That person DID NOT read the story properly…. Please go back and read the news and understand…..thank [email protected] All jamaicans are not bad. I have friends from there…. Some Antiguans are bad too. Everyone who migrated to another is for betterment. Trump r drve some r are you outta merica and r you nar move… Chupps ley d people dem lone as long as they work and be themsrlves it doesn’t bother me.

      • And now it’s an Antiguan arrested and charge for the crime…. I don’t see Mary John running with this….

    • The individual who is assisting the police nationality was not reveal in this article only the victim who is a Jamaican national.
      The government whoever in power love the Jamaicans in the country for them ‘X’ or votes. Antigua & Barbuda need a government who cares about it nationals and knows how to control it boarders/port of entry. The island is only 108 square miles.
      The nation need a quarterly statistics report showing the nationality of the people who had/have committed/charged for crimes in Antigua and Barbuda.

      • The individual is an Antiguan cop (constable). While you attack ABLP which has been government longer than any other party, it is this country, especially under its leadership, which has the one of the lowest homicide rates in the Caribbean region.

    • Stfu u rasta idiot. The suspect is not from Jamacia it is an Antiguan and a police officer to add to that. U always trolling and don’t have all your facts together.

      • @Carribeanunited,Is your comment directed at me? If not i apologize..If it is however ,read what i said again” Someone told me he was an Antiguan,from Bendals.. This was told to me even before there was an autopsy and news hit the media,so it’s obvious that the news came from a reliable source,who knows both the victim and the accused.. Not everyone thrives on rumors ..

  3. Since a while back, I have been questioning why the conclusion of ‘suicide’ was always jumped to when someone is found dead in other ways outside of stabs and bullet wounds before autopsies?
    Glad this one is teaching us to wait for proof.
    But ,another police again?
    Kudos to the pathologists and their findings.
    A near perfect murder?

  4. C,Mon all Jamiacans are not bad people,just like all Antiguians&Barbudians.Give the Jamiacans a chance they have families to feed just like Antiguians.

  5. Not all Jamaicans are bad true but 80% OUT OD 100% OF THEM ARE that’s why they can’t travel to certain place cause the make it bad for themselves the crimes the killings the threats jamaica come in like Afghanistan rii now

  6. Rastamannnn cut off your dreads ! You are fake rasta no love in ya heart ! .someone lost their life thats all you an say come on! Stop bashinging Jamaicans they are humans also! Every country has it bad and good !Just like Antigua!

  7. Why are the person’s nationality even an issue here anyway-This kinda crime is based on the oldest motive in most cases -Jealousy.. It happens in every nation and to every Color Creed and Class..
