The body of the female found in Fair Hall, Sunday morning, has been identified as that of Kemeisha Haynes, 17, of Murray’s Village.

Haynes is the second female teenager to be found dead in St. Vincent and the Grenadines in just under two years.

Her body was found over an embankment with what appears to be wounds less than two years after the body of Precious Williams, 17, of Sion Hill, was found in a bag in Richmond Hill on May 12, 2022.

Police are treating Haynes’ death as a homicide, pending the outcome of an autopsy.

Police are working to identify the body of a female that was found in Fair Hall, Sunday morning.

iWitness News was reliably informed that the body had what appeared to be wounds and police are treating the case as a homicide, pending the findings of an autopsy.

A well-placed source told iWitness News that the body appears to be that of a female in her mid-20s and was found just below an embankment by a passer-by.

If confirmed as a homicide, it will bring to 10 the number of people killed in St. Vincent and the Grenadines this year.

Two females are among the nine confirmed homicide victims. They are Janae Samuel-Wright, 1, who died in Rose Hall on Feb. 10 after her throat was slit.

Police have charged, Jeremiah Samuel, 22, with murder in connection with the infant’s death. Samuel is said to have been displaying symptoms of mental illness at the time of the killing.

Then, on Feb. 14, Carona Themisha Petronia Jennings, 30 of Campen Park, died at her home after being stabbed multiple times.

Kayode Richardson, 18, of Campden Park was charged with murder in connection with Jennings’ death. Richardson is Jennings’ boyfriend’s nephew.

The discovery of the woman’s body in Fair Hall comes even as detectives are yet to crack the case of the killing of Precious Williams, 17, of Sion Hill, whose body was found in a bag in Richmond Hill on May 12, 2022.

Detectives have, however, made a breakthrough in the killing of Zarrel Veronica “Keisha” Small, of Pole Yard, whose body was found on the tarmac at the decommissioned E.T Joshua Airport in Arnos Vale, on Aug. 25, 2022, with a piece of conduit protruding from her vagina.

On Dec. 29, 2023, police charged Rion “Pitbull” Cole, a 24-year-old labourer, of Paul’s Avenue, with the murder in connection with Small’s death.

After becoming the nation’s chief crime fighter last year, acting Assistant Commissioner of Police Trevor “Buju” Bailey had vowed to crack the Williams and Small murder cases and ordered detectives to take a fresh look at the killings.

  1. Why does the headline say “17 year old Y O”
    Does Y O not stand for young offender?
    How does this journalist know that she was a young offender?

  2. Sandra Small says:
