St. Kitts and Nevis (WINN): Police on Nevis are investigating the death of a young woman that may be linked to an apparent suicide.
Reports reaching WINN FM indicate that on Monday night, police were called by a doctor to the Taylor's Pasture home of a young woman - a 6th form student - who had been found dead. The doctor had been summoned by a family member who on returning home had discovered the young woman unresponsive. WINN FM understands that there were no signs of violence to the body of the girl, however, reports are that the police are not ruling out foul play.
Reliable sources tell WINN FM that attempts by police to contact the man who the young lady was last believed to be with were unsuccessful. Eventually a door was removed from his home and he was discovered in the bathroom in a pool of blood with a wound that appeared to be self inflicted. The man, who is said to be at least 50 years old, was taken to the Alexandra Hospital for treatment. His condition was unknown in the early hours of Tuesday morning.
UPDATE (Tuesday May 21 - 7:40 a.m.): Early Tuesday morning Police Commissioner C.G. Walwyn confirmed the death of 18 year old Chazere Davis of Taylor's Pasture, describing it as a “suspicious death.”
He indicated to WINN FM that an autopsy will be performed this morning as there were "no external visible signs of how she died during the initial observation by police."
He also confirmed the hospitalization of 52 year old Kelvin Williams who allegedly was the last known person to be in Ms Davis’ presence when she was alive. The Commissioner said that Mr. Williams was “found by police at his residence in a semi-conscious state with what appeared to be self-inflicted wounds to his body.”
