Discovery of a second decomposed body in less than two weeks

The Commonwealth of Dominica Police Force (CDPF) has launched an investigation into the discovery of yet another decomposed body in the city of Roseau in less than two weeks.

On September 25, 2023, at about 7:40 a.m., the body of an unidentified male individual was discovered in the presbytery of the Roman Catholic Cathedral which is under renovation on Virgin Lane in Roseau.

According to Inspector of Police, Fixton Henderson, at the time of the discovery, the body was in an advanced stage of decomposition.

“The body is being kept at a funeral home pending an autopsy,” he further revealed. “The Commonwealth of Dominica Police Force investigates the circumstances surrounding the death of the deceased.”

On September 16, 2023, the body of another unidentified male individual was discovered in a Rav4 vehicle which was parked on High Street, Roseau in the parking area between the traffic department and the Youth Development Division.

Following the grim discovery, that body was examined and pronounced dead at the scene that afternoon by a medical doctor.

    Medical care is at it’s lowest in the Commonwealth of Dominica. Feeding the homeless is at it’s low also….depression and mental health, hardly any care is the result too of persons just laying down..being sick and dies.
    Dominicans wake up..young people open your eyes wide and look what is going on in your home country.

    Bodies keep decomposing the same way Dominica is. What a stinking place.

    Here we have two badly decomposed bodies of citizens and the people remain nonchalant. It is no wonder that Roosevelt feels empowered to continue his abundant ways.

    Fear mongering and victimization perpetrated by one man ( the Father of Lies) in Dominica have lulled the people’s minds into indifference.

    The question is how many more decomposing bodies are yet to be discovered? If one were to rate Dominica in terms of good governance and standard of living from 1 – 10, with 1 being the lowest, the rating will be (minus)-100.

    People nothing a corrupt government likes more than sheepish, aloof, reticent and dispassionate citizens. The current government is carrying out a predatory manipulation of the people. Nothing these same corrupt politicians fear more than a well-informed, educated, restive society.

    The Roosevelt led concoction of depraved and toxic opportunists has cheapened the lives of Dominicans.

      Some people are missing so who knows? Most of the missing are trashed in “NO MAN’s LAND.” And some people don’t believe that something more terrible is heading our way. There are murderers walking the streets, sitting next to you in buses, living next door to you, dressing nice and looking good you never know. Dominica needs a shaking really bad.

    What’s happening in this once peaceful country? We used to care for and about each other. I don’t want to hear any comparisons to what is going on in other countries. All I know is that the fish rots from the head down. It’s time to put derailed Dominica back unto the tracks of peace and love, compassion, good neighborliness, good governance. In the past I’ve heard visitors to my country say things like,”all Dominicans will go to heaven “. These days it’s all for me, myself and I. The institutions of state have become compromised and corruption and nepotism are the order of the day. We don’t really care for common decency anymore. Even police killing civilians and corrupting the process of discovery, journalists are being threatened by violence, children of the power players who kill are hidden from facing justice, many cases are discontinued by the Judiciary, lots of unsolved murders, young lives going to feed worms. When you play with fire you’ll get burned. when will it…

    News from Dominica is so depressing and keeps getting worse and worse. Skerrit with his covenant with the devil has destroyed the whole fabric of Dominica and the citizens are constantly in sorrow and mourning. Dominica needs deliverance…all you need to get rid of Roosevelt Skerrit and all the practices of Satan he has introduced on island man
