The homicide count in St. Vincent and the Grenadines this year moved up to two Saturday night, with the shooting death of a man in Villa.

Sources in the know have told iWitness News that the man, Corey Greaves, of Dorsetshire Hill, received multiple gunshots to the head.

Greaves died at the scene just short of Glen Baptist Church, on the road to the Community College Villa Campus.

The man is believed to have been walking in the area when unknown assailant(s) attacked him and fled the scene immediately after the shooting.

Greaves’ death follows that of Jason Martin, a 47-year-old mason, of Belmont, who is the country’s first homicide victim this year.

  1. One of the coolest, quiet and pleasant young man I have met. He was unemployed but would assist in little chores around our houses and when he clean, he does it better than the paid professionals. Always had a smile and says ‘hello’ to friends and strangers alike. He was a genuinely nice person.
    Can’t imagine what Corey could have done to deserve this.

    We are losing too many of our young men!!

  2. Criminals are no longer afraid of being caught because the probability of being caught e is very low. The area where the killing occurred in January is well within the vicinity of a local college, making it more telling that CTV camera should have been installed. Technology solves crime but the government has a pathetic record of solving crimes and even when solved the penalty that is meted out is at best ludicrous. Criminal investigation in St Vincent should be given a failing grade, some policemen cannot express themselves effectively in the language of the courts, resulting in cases being thrown out a lack of coherency. Our jails are full of individuals who have committed murder’s and manslaughter.

    The Belisle prison act as a revolving door for the worse inmates. We recently heard of two individuals who toyed with the security system by walking out and being on the lam. A few years ago an individual was armed to the teeth, and very camouflaged in Kingstown was released on bailed only to be rearrested for the same act. The criminal justice system in St Vincent is a joke, some known criminals are allowed to ply their trade because they drive around the country in highly tinted cars. The authorities see nothing wrong with this practice. God help us.

  3. Sad. To die by so much shot to his head is very wickedness. Those person or persons should pay for the wickedness they have done to this guy. Rewards money need to put up to catch criminals in SVG. People will talk
