Teenager charged with murder in Hodges killing

arrestedA 17-year-old from Woodfordhill has been charged with murder in connection with the killing of a Brazilian national in the Hodges area.

The body of Rose Wyatt, 51, was found last Sunday lying in a footpath which leads to Hodges Beach in an area between Calibishie and Woodfordhill.

Wyatt was the owner of Sunrise Gardens, located about two kilometers from the village of Calibishie.

Because of his age, the laws of Dominica prohibit the publication of the accused name.

    Makes me sick, this country is finally getting the attention that is needed for tourism to thrive yet the locals abuse, kill and rob the tourists??! Tell me how the country will get any better. If they send him scott free how will others learn? They need to teach these children to better themselves. No wonder people scared to come down here, I’m planning on going on vacation to see my family but if I bring a friend God knows what still happen to us, they see tourists or any foreigner and they’re heads get big thinking we all have money! Lord have mercy.

    I have a wish which is too great to ask. I want to be named DOMINICA The invisible, anyone who made a comment against me to disappear and hanging in the moon. If only Dominica could talk. A beautiful Island well loved by everyone except the natives. See the mountains, so pretty and well formed. Guess what the mountains are rocks, but trees grow on them well mannered and protect the rocks. We should protect Dominica and not hide behind Dominica. Every body should play their part how small and stop passing the blame on one another, you cannot solve any problems by passing it on

    As I have been telling you’ll people….what plays out in the advance countries,U.S.A,Britain,France,Germany etc is now rapidly working its way down to the third world countries…what these third world countries have not yet adopted.. trust me it’s not to far behind…they will catch on to it.
    17 years old and his name can’t be given due to the law. I guess like it’s said here in the U.S…( He’s only a kid.
    Well you’ll know what’s next…Up here in the States they are still hooked unto this kid business but have now added on the mental card…He or She is mental..not in their right state of mind when the crime was committed.
    That’s the next we’ll be hearing down there…not in the right state of mind put him in the hospital..story end…

    Since robberies were committed near the beach, was Rosa not informed about not walking alone through those paths?
    I hope from now on everyone, visitors will be informed about these areas. They must be protected.
    Those area should have consistent police patrol.
    These criminals are taking away people’s freedom, enjoyment and life. They must be severely dealt with.
    They will be the cause of Dominica not getting many visitors as also tourists.
    Minister of Tourism, please take note. There has been enough talking. Immediate action is required to protect residents and, visitors in Dominica.

    He has been robbing tourists on the beach and burglarizing homes which is known to police? He must have been arrested and charged. This is why a man as that should not be out in society.
    I recall a French man with his daughter were robbed and his daughter raped. Was it in the same area?
    Some young men were arrested in the case of another tourist couple who were visiting. they were on their way to the airport. Their documents and the wife’s wedding ring were stolen. The police arrested three of them.
    These young people do not care that they give their country and law-abiding nationals a bad name. This is why they should be severely punished. Incarceration with no parole should be their lot.
    They are bailed and continue to commit crimes. This time murder. It is said thieves could commit two crimes, theft and murder.
    Government, the Court, Police authorities, it is high time that such people should not be released.

      We helped the couple who were robbed of numerous items including her wedding/engagement rings) at Batibou Beach. The items were recovered within a few days.* The guilty party was never punished, He was easy to find because he was a known village thief from school days.

      * When the recovered items arrived via shipment back to the couple, the rings were missing (had been listed). Some thief in the police or court system must have taken them; we know from experience that FedEx is secure. Bottom line: The couple, prior multiple-time visitors who were planning to buy Dominica property, have eliminated Dominica from their plans.

    Although my heart bleeds for Ms Wyatt’s family, I cyah even get riled up because I’m tired. Tired of the stupid archaic laws in our country that allows killers to go free.

    I can remember Mongar was around that same age when he and his compadre kicked Ossie to death in Roseau. They send him to prison, then Mercy Committee come and run their mouth about oh he’s young and all of that garbage. The two them got away scott free. One driving bus now and the other dead as a doornail rotting in the cemetery somewhere.

    I guess I will leave the vengeance to the Most High. You doh see Mongar get his? Sitting down on a bench on High Street easy easy. All them badasses does get theirs after a time, so I not even bothered.

    f there are two significant failures in our little island, they are the failed application of good parenting in the upbringing of our children, and the failure of the churches to promote good parental skills. Churches have a responsibility to mentor and guide their followers. From well raised children do harmonious communities spring.

  16. January 21, 2016

    No outcry, no label attached to the village the young man hail from? If that was, “Grandbay Again” boots on the ground would swarm the hood. It’s a shame this individual termed at the hand of this young man. Crime is crime and can happen anywhere, anytime, gender, race and standard of living will not deter a criminal mind. The young man is still a youth and may not understand his behavior in the moment. Trying him as an adult and calling for hanging and all other form of punishment will not stop another killing. Education, uplifting and providing a sense of belonging to this young man are the key. He will be punished for his behavior, but think before we allow our emotions to fly out the gate.

    Why should his parents be charged for aiding and abetting? Which mother or father would influence their 17 year old son to go and murder? Which parent? Children are not always under the supervision of their parents. Parents can’t never know all their children friends or who their children associating with? Don’t try to apply any pressure on his parent plz. Don’t be judging because today is his shower and tomorrow might just be yours.

      What is also shocking, he is only 17 years old and he has a murder on his hands. It is a serious crime.
      If I were you, I would not be certain that he did not commit murder alone. The strength of men, be it a teenager cannot usually surpass that of women. Unless he is a skinny young man who has no strength, he could very well have done it. He is arrested and charged. Unless I know otherwise, I will state he murdered her.
      It would be interesting to know why he did it and was he the only person. At least the police could reveal this once he is interrogated.

      We cannot please God if we are wicked toward our fellow people and on this Website.
      It is said God turns His back on wicked people. Reason is, because they turned their backs on Him because of their wickedness and planning same on their fellow people.
      Keep in mind as in Holy Scriptures: “All have fallen short of His glory. All have sinned”, one way or the other. How many are striving for mortal and spiritual perfection in also words to their fellow people?

    fellow Dominicans, especially young people, I know the situation in Dominica today looks hopeless as many of us see how our country is being sold by to and foreigners on mydominica.com. However, let us not pass our anger on foreigners because they are not the cause of our problem. In fact please do not pass your anger on anyone or do anything stupid.

    In recent times many foreigners have been attacked, robbed, and murdered in Dominica, as if they are our problem. I think of our Australian Cricketers as well as those attacked at gun point on beaches, on our streets, national sights, just to name a few.

    I know it brings more anger to see how our government gave our historic land at cabrits and other areas to foreigners while many of us cannot build a toilet to call ours. Furthermore, it brings more anger to see how we had to raise $80,000 to pay another foreigner that sued us, just for asking about our money.
    Yes, it angers us, but please remain calm while our God fight for us.

      No man is an island and the beautiful Dominica cannot survive without foreign investment that is the way of the world. That same young man may well have enjoyed life without crime if he had a job. What are we doing for our young people we need to give them opportunities through work after their education ends. Well having foreign investment can help that happen. Before you think rubbish look at the USA a lot of foreigners are building those shiny skyscrapers for Americans to work same with the UK. If you turn away foreign investment either a house, tourist then I think more will turn to crime which will be a great shame for all of us.

    We really have to STOP FAULTING PARENTS for the wrongdoings of children. We do raise our children right, THEY, the children, follow their own paths. SOME keep their upbringing, morals and values of what they were taught, but SOME can’t wait to flee. STOP FAULTING PARENTS! Those of us that are parents know full well that some children, as they get older, are determined to NOT follow the rules/guidance of parents. SOME children put SOME parents to shame with their behavior. Let’s not jump to assumed conclusions.

    Well ,well ,our lives in dominica are in danger,our children are now taking crime to a higher lever,17 yrs old killing for no valuable reason,i am sure the dog was trying to defend its owner as most good dogs would have done.did his parents know about his crime and kept it from the police?if yes they should be persecuted as an accessory to murder ,this should be investigated because it is an important question,we must have toff love ,do not hide our children from any arrest if they have raped,kill,steal ,assaulted for no valuable reason or any other high level crime..now the law must change, minors will feel protected because the law is using underage as first excuse when a minor becomes a criminal especially murder and rape>He also killed the dog ,i personally think that if he was not caught in time he would continue killing.now is the time that all the political representatives should make serious changes too the laws that are existing.too many murderers have walked out freely..

    At 17, I was in high school preparing myself for a bright future. Outside of School I was busy playing cricket and soccer for my village, and good churches to keep us on track. I had a lot of respect for the law, those older than me, village councilors, police officers, government ministers and others, because they were all an examples and role models to us. Not only that, but there was the junior secondary school for young people who did not do very well so they could go learn to do something to help themselves. Such is not the case today, as all of the institutions have fallen today!
    While I strongly condemn this evil act of violence, the question that must be asked is, what are we doing for our young people to give them hope for the future? We MUST admit that Dominica today is far from the Dominica of 20 yrs ago, where our councilors, politicians, police officers, churches, sports and others helped us remain focus. Instead, Skerrit find is tablet they need

      You know the saying, what goes around comes around in time. Let us wait and see what will happen to him.

  29. @Jeff January 21, 2016 “What was on his mind at that age?

    I will tell you what! It is the negative mentality that is all around him. I have said it before and I am saying it again; that kind of feeding is bad for our children, our young people, who are to be our adults of tomorrow–but are those who are responsible for those negative vibes, which they are spewing around, serving to their children and their young friends, are they taking heed?.

    When I read the comments on DNO, it disturbs me to the extremity, knowing that most of those comments are from younger people who are simply accepting what they hear or read from those adults who has no kind of substance in what they write and speak.–all is futility

    A mind that is fed with negativity, like we are feeding to our youth of Dominica, eventually becomes restless, agitated, angry, hostile, and even to the point of have no respect for the human life–to do things just as this young fellow may have done.

    • Now we are calling for jail time for him, what good will that do for him and us–even if he remains incarcerated for the rest of his days on Earth

      The problem with us is that we fail to understand the “concept of Love” which has to be the Ground, the Root, and the Sap (blood) of the Tree–which is us in the Life of God— for God is Love, and Love is Life of Spirit and Truth in us, human affection is of the flesh.

      But all over the place we are claiming {“human affection” in the name of Love–that is a tragic mistake; and for that reason our children are being born and growing up without knowing Love, hence not knowing God.

      They have no hope of the Light in Life–because we continue to point them or lead them unto the path of darkness and death–with that kind of feeding in the mind of a young man– it is not surprising that he would do this kind of thing–it is now too late to fix it, regardless of his punishment

        Elizabeth, what sort of penalty do you suggest he pay for taking the life of another person? Man woman or child he belong in jail, and he should live in jail for the rest of his natural life! He should get the sentence twenty five years to life without parole, that will ensure he die in jail!

        It is time the legal justice system send a message to those who are inclined to kill; so that if, and when they take the life of another person, if the murder is premeditated they will die in jail.

        Anytime one goes out to rape, steal, that is premeditated, their intention was to kill in order not to get caught. Permanent life incarceration should be the only option!

      Not condoning what he did but he is a JUVENILE…if it was your child or brother or sister would you like their name published? if his name is placed on Facebook i will be one who will definitely ensure that the person is brought before the Court for doing so…the juvenile has been charged and will be dealt with in the Court of Law…it is unfortunate that this has happened but still…he is a juvenile….

        How many times he has to commit crimes and now a murder to be discontinued being regarded as a juvenile?
        He is of the age of reason. He knew very well what he did. He deprived the lady of he life and her future.
        Well, let us hope his attorney does not plead for him to be released He is already no good to society. At this stage in his life, there is nothing good he can do for Dominica and nationals. He deserves to be kept incarcerated.
        He should pray to God with remorse and humility and ask God forgiveness. Forgiveness does not come so easy to simply say, “God forgive me.” He has to make some form of restitution, in prayer, performing penance and sacrifice to appease God sufficiently for Him to forgive that man. If he does not know that, a well-versed person will have to inform him about it. He must first learn it.

      God is a myth. The damn missionaries make Dominica ignorant. Formerly, slaveowners used the christian myths to make the slaves docile. There is no such thing as a god. There are, however, criminals. A thug culture. Thuggery exalted in “gangsta rap” and BET on television.

    Oh my .. 17 years of age! What was on his mind at that age? When I was 17, it was all about school and playing football with my SMA boys. After school, it was work and then homework. Where are his parents?

    Because of his age, his parents or care takers should also be charged for aiding and abetting!!!!!!!!

    It’s a great shame that children have now adopted this audacious act of man slaughter. It’s quite alarming, it really is. Only a few months ago I warned about the younger ones picking up the outrageous activities that some of us as adults practice; (Drugs, Prostitution, Murder, Gambling). Now here we are, a minor have come in on the act. Another wasted life. One might think, was he brought up in the right way, did he poses good moral values, did he follow bad friends, or was he neglected by his parents? Perhaps!!! I suspect that sexual recreation was not the case here. A 17 year old going after a 51 year woman ? I doubt it. My 2 cents is telling me that this was nothing more than a senseless killing. That 17 year old must have been suffering from depression where he was overwhelmed with the thought of a SALTY future so he took out his frustration on this poor woman.

        So he has been committing crimes for sometime and at a younger age. This is why his name and picture should be released. Dominicans want to know what he looks like in case he is released in society.
        Do you recall approximately a year ago a vacationing couple, while bathing were robbed of their documents in their vehicle and the wife’s wedding band was stolen. Would it have been in that same area where the lady was murdered?

    Because of his age he is still considered a minor, so DNO is correct in not publishing his name even though they might have gotten it from the police department. However, that being said I hope that the judicial system tries him as an adult, because it can and should be done. I am not saying this because the lady was a foreigner, the Laws that be need to start dealing with these crimes in an appropriate way. I know times have changed but it saddens me when some of these young men commit these heinous crimes. Growing up at home I know young people got into trouble with the Law, but I am trying to see if during my growing up days any teenager, male or female did something so out of the way. In closing fathers and mothers need to take control of their children and train them from a very young age, because even if a few of them might still slip through the cracks majority of them will do better.

    The age of sexual consent is 16 as should be…it should even be reduced to 15…a 17 year old should be tried as an adult…the law should be amended

    • January 21, 2016

      I don’t think that the age for sexual consent should be reduced to 15, although many are sexually active way before that age. I think that the age for sexual consent should be INCREASED. However, if a 17 year old’s mind can think as an adult, and is capable of MURDER, he should be tried as an ADULT.

    Juvenile of Dominica, this is not the path you want to follow.
    Hopefully this was not ntentionally, we do not know the facts. But please my Dominican children, do not follow the ways of wicked men. Love your elders, protect your elders.
    Check for their wellbeing. You the youths have the power to change the future of your country. Don’t be a another statistic of society. Be better then those who intentions are to commit harm on our OUR elderly. BE BETTER .LIVE RIGHT.

    BLESSED LOVE

      What would possess someone to commit murder? Do you think he was provoked? If maybe, why didn’t he walk away? Yes, we have to wonder what happened, but we might never know because the ONLY witness, other than GOD and the person who committed the crime, is DEAD.

        Provoked? So he was provoked and then he raped the lady and killed her? You can not be serious man? If someone provokes you you assault them sexually and then kill them? Think about what you are saying. Furthermore why would that lady provoke one of these rough necks?

    How terribly sad! A 17 year old teenager has been charged with the murder of Rose! Why on earth is a 17 year old teenager wanting to kill another human being let alone a woman! What has gone wrong in this young man’s childhood to make him commit this terrible heinous crime. Rose must have been terrified and pleaded for her life! Something is very, very wrong! Why is it that now there seems to be no morals. The younger generation do not seem to know wrong from right, respect for each other or their elders! The 10 commandments are a great guide on how we should live our lives. I feel totally sorry for Rose’s husband and family, this is tragic. This young man should never ever be allowed to be free again if he indeed did murder Rose. In fact what he did is totally evil. R.I.P. Rose.

    • January 21, 2016

      Well, Rose is dead. Someone killed her. Let’s hope this boy has an explanation or an alibi. Here’s a thought – he probably was rejected by Rose. Anything is possible.

      You see, in Dominica we fail to understand the principles of “good leadership” which should serve as a compass for the youth and our future by extension. If the head is bad, then the tail will follow. There is no accountability from those whom we worship as leaders in Ma Dominique. As much as I hate to bring politics is such a discussion it cannot be overlooked or ignored. Politics determines what we eat,drink, how we behave, what we wear and so on.

      Now, how can we have those in leadership who blatantly violates our constitution, by-laws, codes of conduct, basic moral values and expect the youth to behave? Here is my final analysis; “DOMINICA, WE HAVE A PROBLEM”! Part of the solution will need a total reset on leadership in government, schools, police high command and those institutions where leadership is paramount (churches). Air Dominica is crashing and we are running out of time.. :-? :-? :-?

      Assertive, Never Aggressive!…

        Leave the government alone. The government did not conceive him, bear him, give birth to him and nurture him. While growing up his parents also housed, fed and clothed him, if he was brought up with both parents.
        Stop blaming society. The same applies for society. He chose to take a path of crime. He is to be blamed. Now we await why he murdered the woman. I hope this is released to the public. They deserve to know.
