St. Vincent and the Grenadines has recorded another suspected hit-and-run death, the third so far this year.
Initial investigations suggest that Kenrick Baptiste, who was found dead in Rabacca Saturday morning, died after being struck by a vehicle, police have said.
A more definite conclusion is expected after an autopsy this week.
Police are also investigating the death of former calypsonian, 53-year-old Kenville “Banco” Ellis, whose body was found in Chilli, Georgetown on April 7.
Commissioner of Police Michael Charles said on radio last week that the evidence shows that a vehicle ran over Ellis.
Meanwhile, a post mortem has concluded Rudolph Hector, 52, died after being struck by a vehicle.
Hector’s body was found along the roadside in Brighton on Jan. 6.
