A British national has been confirmed as St. Lucia’s first homicide for 2019.
The deceased Robert Hathaway, was a well-known businessman who made St. Lucia his home several years ago. His nude body was discovered at his Piat Grande Riviere home on Sunday morning.
This latest homicide comes just three days shy of the fifth anniversary of the death of 62 year old Roger Pratt, also a British national who was killed on board his yacht in Vieux Fort on January 17th 2014.
While details are still sketchy, according to reports, Bob Hathaway had two young ladies who assited him during the week.
On Saturday January 12th, the two ladies went out and returned home around midnight. It was then that they discovered Hathaway’s nude body, on a blood soaked bed with a pillow over his face.
His Toyota Rav 4 was also missing.
One resident of Piat has expressed shock and sadness at the incident
This latest incident comes a few days shy of the fifth anniversary of British national Roger Pratt who was killed and his wife assaulted while their yacht was anchored off the coast of Vieux Fort in 2014.
Another Piat resident of the area says criminal elements should find legitimate ways to entertain themselves.
