The bloodshed that rounded off 2022 in St. Vincent and the Grenadines, setting a new record for homicides in the country in one year, continued on New Year’s Day.
The country has recorded its first homicide for 2023 on the first day of the New Year.
Dead is Selwyn Foye, a 46-old-farmer of Carriere.
iWitness News was reliably informed that police were notified around 2 a.m. today (Sunday) of a man lying on the Collins-Evesham by-pass road with what appeared to be gunshots wound about his body.
Police later responded but Foye succumbed to his injuries.
Two killings over Christmas holidays drove the homicide count in 2022 to 42, shattering the previous record, 40, set in 2016.
