Police investigate discovery of dead vagrant inside vehicle in Roseau

The Commonwealth of Dominica Police Force (CDPF) are currently investigating the discovery of a body inside a vehicle believed to be a vagrant man known as Black Magic.

The grim find was made earlier today, on High Street, Roseau, on the side of the building which houses the Traffic department.

Dominica News Online (DNO) have been reliably informed by police sources that

the individual may have been inside the vehicle for several days, as some degree of decomposition was seen upon discovery.

The circumstances surrounding “Black Magic’s” death is currently under investigation.

DNO will continue to follow this story and report any new development as the investigation unfolds.

    Why don’t you ask yourself what can you do to help instead of pointing fingers! Ibo MALAPROP.

    I don’t understand that in this hot weather a decomposing body, which should have had a stench could remain there for days before the police became aware. Was the body treated with some substance to minimize the bad smell?. Come on tell me the whole story, because something is missing from the story told so far.

    are you sure it was black magic ?
    my understanding is black magic was picked up by the police a week ago….
    secondly the police said this morning, the body has not yet been identified

    While the growing population of the homeless seeks shelter in old abandoned vehicles, decapitated buildings, and make the cold concrete sidewalks their bed, Roosevelt, his bombastic wife and American born children, sleep in utmost comfort, in a $64K tax funded multi-million dollar castle impervious to the suffering of the least among us. Heartlessness!

      *dilapidated buildings not decapitated although that word perfectly describes the many abandoned buildings without roofs that litter the landscape of the island- the autocorrect mechanism changed the original word.

      Hot debate. What do you think? Thumb up 5 Thumb down 3

        Lucky you corrected your error before KID could see it; with the words dilapidated and decapitated.
        Still wonder if KID ON THE BLOCK would raise any red flag though and shout MALAPROP!!
        He has to prove to me that he knows what he is talking about. I am not convince that he knows.

          I remember travelling on a train in New your.The police had to be called to remove a black man from the train.I could not believe a human being could STINK so much and still be alive.Every state in the US has homeless people,drug addicts and drunkards.Ibo is a regular Jacka who gets his Viagra by thinking of Skerrit.

      In big, advanced America, there are vagrants and homelessness, and bums, and beggars in every city, county, and zip codes. They live on the streets, in cars, in abandoned houses, on peoples’ porches, in the subway, on public buses. What are you talking about? Why don’t you open a shelter for them and stop running your mouth? Do something. Ask not what your country can do for you but what you can do for your country.

      September 18, 2023

      Ibo MALAPROP, why are so obsessed at Skerrit? I’m sure you sleep comfortable in the basement you occupy. Have you thought of assisting the very homeless you are talking about by rendering some shelter to them in your basement? Boss, jealousy is a fork up thing.

      Kid I can tell you for a fact,all those who say bad things about the government are failures.I know a number of Dominicans who would do better returning to Dominica.Some Dominicans in the US are living on handouts from the church,soup kitchen and foodstamps.I was surprised to see Dominicans who had a good job in Dominica,become drug addicts,drunkards,unemployed and homeless.A number of Dominicans are amputees,some double,who have died in poverty unable to return to Dominica.A large number of Dominicans are in prison in the US and hundreds of Dominican women are single mothers and married more than once.If you go to the immigration dept right now,hundreds of Dominicans living in the diaspora are applying for Dominican passport and thousands have 2 passports Dominicans who are successfull in the diaspora do not criticize the government.Teachers and police turn to labourers,pool cleaners and babysitters living in basement or 2×4 rooms struggling to survive.Dominica is paradise. and FREE.

    I have repeatedly said that the problem of poverty and vagrancy has become a monumental headache in Dominica and it is growing. What is the administration doing to reduce it to negligible levels? Absolutely nothing!

    With murders ballooning, NCDs on the rise, inflation at an all time high, unemployment staggeringly high, Roosevelt and his uncaring parasites are flirting with the economic genocide of resident Dominicans.
