An Ottley Hall man died on the beach in Rose Place on the eastern end of Kingstown around 7 a.m. Saturday after a stabbing incident involving another man.
The dead man has been identified as Maxwell “Bad Money” Nash, a fisherman, who is originally from Chateaubelair.
iWitness News was reliably informed that police have detained a man in connection with the death.
Reports are that that suspect in the killing had reported to police that in early August he was at home sleeping when Nash cut through the burglar bars, broke through the window, and stabbed him with an object.
On Saturday, the suspect is said to have been at home when Nash, reportedly, approached him with a knife, saying, “A tell yo’ ah coming back for yo’! A tell yo’ ah coming back for yo’!”
The man started to run in the direction of the beach, but Nash pursued and caught up with him.
There was scuffle, during which Nash reportedly tried to stab the suspect with a knife.
The suspect is said to have been able to get away the knife from Nash and stabbed him as the scuffle continued.
The suspect is said to have sustained bruises as result of the incident and was taken to the hospital for medical attention and remains in police custody.
Nash’s death was one of two recorded in less than 24 hours.
Also, on Saturday morning, police were taken to Argyle by a man who showed them the body of Spiritual Baptist Bishop, Ian Enoch.
The man, said to be a 25-year-old resident of Georgetown, reportedly told police that he killed Enoch during a same-sex encounter Friday night.
Enoch’s wife had reported him missing on Saturday morning after he did not return home, having left to go to a restaurant in the Villa area Friday night.
The killings on the weekend bring to 20 the homicide count in St. Vincent and the Grenadines for 2018
