St. Vincent and the Grenadines has recorded a new homicide record, with six days remaining in the year.

The country recorded its 41st homicide this year with the Christmas Day killing of a Belair resident in his village.

The dead man is Oswald “Bagga Bread” Brereton, 30.

Reports are that police responded to a report of a shooting in Belair around 12:10 a.m.

On arrival, they met Brereton lying in his patio with what appeared to be gunshot and chop wounds.

  1. SVG has given birth to a Godless generation a generation of vipers, the development of a culture of ungodliness and we now we are reaping the harvest.

  2. I wonder what the birth rate is in relation to the death rate. No more pointing fingers;its time for positive action.

  3. Jeanie Ollivierre says:

    Calling on the Youth, Gender Affairs & Community Development Department Officers to get out of their offices, mobilise youths at ALL levels so that pertinent Life/personal development Skill programmes based on needs identified could be taught & energies harnessed (Not ONLY SKILLS). In my day the elderly lamented that “the devil finds mischief things for idle hands to do”. Youths are screaming for our attention, listen and take action. Get up Mobilisation Officers, get into the communities, outreach outreach…..update the National Youth Policy of the 80’s based on today’s reality, reestablish student bodies in Secondary schools, youth groups across SVG, ensure dynamism within & among PTA’….let’ get back to where we were in the 80’s. MARION HOUSE’ YOUTHS ARE CALLING FOR ACTION NOW!

  4. The PM bosted on a local radio station recently in a conversation with Luke that he wants to be the Six Star General following the next election. As Minister of national security what is preventing him from being a Six Star General in the quest for fighting crimes?
