Nation reeling after Nevis records another homicide

clasped hands

St. Kitts and Nevis (WINN):  The nation is reeling as word of another homicide on Nevis surfaced Monday morning.  Details are sketchy, but WINN FM has confirmed that Antonio Hutton, also known as ‘Dollar’ was shot and killed in Bath Village late Sunday night.  Reports are that Hutton was originally from the Cotton Ground area.

His killing, the eighth on the island of Nevis for the year comes just over a week after twenty-two year old Adrian Springette was gunned down at Grove Park.

The Nevis Island Administration has been seeking input from citizens, residents and NGOs as it tackles the spate of violence on the island of close to 12000 people. 

In a statement after a high level consultation on held on crime Thursday Premier Vance Amory said his administration planned to work closer with the church and other organizations to preserve the island’s culture and traditions that seem now to be under attack.

The Federation has recorded eighteen homicides for the year, including that of Winston Browne who was killed during a confrontation with Police in January; the figure also includes the shooting death of Trevor Douglas in March, who reportedly was shot by Police while fleeing from the scene where he is said to have caused damage to a vehicle in Basseterre.

Of the eighteen homicides in the Federation, fifteen were shooting deaths.  William Daniel succumbed to stabbing injuries sustained on June 22nd, Lindsay Williams died after being stabbed by his girlfriend in January, and Chazere Dore was strangled to death in May.

Crime has to be subdued; else it is going to have serious consequences on economic tourism which is an integral component of the Federation’s economic life’s blood. Besides, visitors and citizens alike want to coexist peacefully, and walk around the Federation safely. We have to naturalize these criminal fungus among us.
