UPDATE: Brazilian killed in Hodges

police do not crossThe police in Dominica are treating the death of a Brazilian national in Hodges as a suspected homicide.

A report from police PRO, Sergeant Pellam Jno Baptiste says the body of the Brazilian woman was found about 6:00 pm on Sunday lying in a footpath which leads to Hodges Beach in an area between Calibishie and Woodfordhill.

Rose Wyatt, 51, was the owner of Sunrise Gardens, located about two kilometers from the village of Calibishie. On its website, Sunrise Gardens is described as “self-catering apartments.”

“The police considers the death of Rose Wyatt, a suspected homicide,” Jno Baptiste said.

He stated the scene was secured by the police and Wyatt was pronounced dead by a medical doctor.

He said anyone with information of the crime should call the Criminal Investigation Department at 266-5164, 266-5165, and 266-5119 or Crime Stoppers Dominica at 1-800-8477.

    Why is the Dominica news only reporting this as a Brazilian National, yes Rose was born in Brazil but she lived in England for many years and was British as is her husband – maybe I’m being synicle but if the British press got hold of this it wouldn’t help the Dominican tourist trade much!

    Murderers should denied bail period. They kill and walking the street like nothing happened. They will think twice before taking another person’s life. NO BAIL SHOULD BE GRANTED TO KILLERS. Let them rot in jail.

    I will keep saying it over and over.As long as these political promotions in the CDPF keeping happening , the crime rate will only go up.The guys who are capable of doing the job are sidelined for politica reason.Those in charge has no idea what to do due to lack of experience.Why are crimes so difficult to solve on such a small island where everybody knows the good guy from the bad guy.Bad policing and crime go hand in hand.The police did not create the criminals but it’s their job to fight them.(Protect and serve is the oath) Obviously there’s a lack or breakdown in community policing when information is so hard to come by.Its our island and it’s our name.As an ex cop it angers me.Lets promote the right guys to get the job done.With that being said my deepest sympathy to the family of the victim.May God grant her mercy.R I P.

    No law Dominica. A 90 year old was raped recently and no dna, no investigation, nothing. They had an idea of who did it, the man wife said he was home at the time and that was it. Case closed. But what all you expect the man wife to say???
    A man send a stone from the street, breaking my uncle window. The police was called, up to now not one officer show up and it will be 2 years this year. We still waiting. Year before I go creole festival with my Canadian friend, a man was running from the police, knock down my friend, she fell down and rolled over a few times, police run past her, up to now police haven’t come back to find out if she okay. Out of all the good time we had, that alone she remember and will never return to DA. Dominica, we shall rise again? But When???

    As with all victims of escalating crime in Dominica, we offer our profound condolences. The brutal killing of a foreign national hurts us all, especially when the crime is not quickly solved. The Good Word teaches that justice does not bear the sword in vain. Find the killers in quick time. Punishment must be swift and sure. No special court but special priority.

    Dominicans at home and abroad are fed up seeing the land of their birth going to the dogs. In developed countries, such a high profile crime would bring out the Chief of Police and Justice Minister to the scene of the crime. They would personally visit with the deceased family to underline the serious implications. Let us make a fresh start and get input from all stakeholders.

    We must effectively address the root causes of increasing violence in this country. It’s not just about unleashing the Commonwealth of Dominica Police Force. We must find ways to give our young men hope and a future.

      Seriously.
      I agree with all you have written. The murders of Trevy Felix & Nelly Stharre, and the LACK of follow up, and seemingly NO INVESTIGATION,… IS being watched and followed by the INTERNATIONAL community of people who knew them both.
      That these atrocities are happening in Dominica, (in such a small place,) and nothing is being done about it,… WILL keep people from coming to this island.
      I know of an American group that cancelled their pricey yoga retreat that was to have taken place in Dominica BECAUSE of these types of crime, and nothing being done about it.
      Sure, crime happens everywhere on the globe,… but in such a small community as Dominica,… that these crimes go unsolved??? ….. that is unacceptable.

    As a Dominican living in the states, this was my recent experience while visiting Dominica after 14 years. It seems like once you are perceived to be a stranger, the behavior I receive was rude, aggressive. I was constantly cursed out for driving slow and if I did not purchase a souvenir, the behavior of the vendors was immediately hostile. The behavior of the staff in an ice cream shop unbelievable; I was told hurry up and make your mind followed by stiupppppp. It is my opinion that Dominica is not ready for foreign investment and tourist. How can you treat people this way and expect them to recommend the island as a vacation destination. This is not the first foreign hotelier that has been killed, beaten or robbed. news flash, People read before they invest their hard earn money. what a sad event for the country.

    • @polo January 18, 2016

      Unlike you, I was very kindly treated, everywhere I went for service–that was in 2008. 30 years after living in Toronto, Canada.

      One of the nicest treatment which I received was when I lost my purse, in Roseau, with all my money, airline ticket and all my other identification–credit cards and all. Without finding that purse I did not know how I would be able to return to Toronto–but guess what!

      I only had to check two places where I went to shop–the first place said no; the other place was Whitchurch.

      I did not even have to say anything–as soon as the Parcel boy saw me, he pointed me to the office of the store–my purse was sitting on a shelf, and the person who was there quickly handed it to me; nothing was missing –praise God.

      Would I discourage anyone from going to Dominica to do business? Most certainly not–especially that me, myself is planning to return, to live my last day of existence in this world in my homeland.

        Elizabeth, what is so Special about that experience?

        I went to a to a Home Depot store where I purchase materials, I paid with a cheque, I left my cheque book, my wallet, with about seven different Credit Cards in it along with my drivers license and money, when I discovered I left my belongs in front the cashier in the store about ten miles from my house, the next day I went back to the lost and found in the store; they handed me my belongings nothing stolen, that happened on two other occasions, where I lost my wallet in Los Angeles, the founders simply mailed my wallet to house.

        I was at Victoria Train Station in London; waiting to board a train to Cuxhaven in West Germany when minuets before I boarded I discovered my ticket was lost, I went back to the place I bought the ticket, as soon I walked in a man was walking out, I said I lost my ticket, the man at the desk said to me he just brought in, so what is so special about Dominica?

      I recall that some customer service clerks were being trained in Dominica. Is this still continuing? Not all of them will ever be trained.
      There was once I walked into a small shop in lower Goodwill., I was driven there to quickly purchase an item. The woman in the shop said to me I have no manners because I did not say good afternoon to her. I told her something and then left.
      The idea of her. She does not even know me or who I am. This is one shop I will never enter or encourage anyone to enter it. This is how they lose business because they are rude and crude and lack respect.
      You and I reside in a different country I suppose. Salespeople greet customers. They could not care less if we greet them. As a frequent shopper, if I know them, I either greet them or they greet me.
      I do not return to a store if they are rude. In fact, they could be reported right up to the Head Office. Dominica has no such office/regulation. This is one of its problems.

      Give me a break. Incidents like this, though terrible, are rare in this country, not the norm. And bad service from shop workers on minimum wage ? I think you can go anywhere in the world to experience that. So you’re saying people should not invest here because of the actions of a maniac and a grumpy ice-cream salesman ? I wonder if you’ve considered the other 60,000+ people living here peacefully ? And you are saying that from your home in the USA ? Well thanks so much for that incredibly insightful piece of advice.

    This crime will not be solved. I feel for the family members and friends of the victim, because she lost her live in vain. We do not have a police department, or Prosecutorial Department either. What we have is a bunch of idiots eating the tax payers money. We all remember the young man from Pottersville who murdered his own brother in cold blood and was granted bail. While out on bail, he murdered again in broad daylight at Crazy T. before he was sent back to jail. Rapists are walking free all day and everyday. It took Antiguan Police Officers to bring an end to “Shaba’s” reign of terror on women in Dominica.

    Very few give their sympathies to the family of the deceased woman , nor show compassion

    To the family of the murdered lady
    I’m very sorry for the loss of your dear one, her energy will be missed by her near ones plus her friends
    I’m very sorry that my compatriots make her death a political debate on this platform
    I’m very sorry that without smart intelligence , the culprit may not be found ( God is good, someone must know)
    I’m sorry that Dominica has no grand CIS forensic equivalent to aid and abet in finding the scumbag(s)
    I’m praying that our small forensic team will be Godly guided with clear thought and support to find the murderer(s)

      Based under the circumstances, frankly, I do not blame you. The criminals should fear law-abiding people. It should not be they being feared.
      At the same time, pray to God for protection. Are you Catholic? If so, ensure that you bless yourself, your home and surroundings with Holy Water.
      Little medals, little prayers but effective. As a child, my mother would give us, her children blessed medals to wear. I have a few and still wear one of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. I keep some Catholic, religious paraphernalia in a bag for when I am outdoors.
      As I have previously stated, pray the prayer to your Guardian Angel. Each person has one, as given to them by God. They are near us but we could suppress them by ungodliness.
      Pray also to St.Michael the Archangel. We have heavenly protectors, given to us by Our Almighty Father but we do not pray to them. Remember, Our Lord Jesus Christ said: “Ask and you shall receive. . . .”
      God bless you and your family!

    To the one who believe Dominica is a tiny quiet island!

    Maybe a very long time ago, your belief that Dominica is a tiny quiet island could be entertained. However, that tiny quiet 305 square mile island no longer exists!

    Dominica is a place where more murders, and rape takes place per capita than most islands of the Caribbean! Dominica is a very dangerous place to live. I am Dominica born in the village of Wesley, the last time I visited, I felt threatened; I left in a hurry! It is very sad the way crimes has escalated over the years.

    The criminals have become very bold, and the reason for that is the lax way in which the judiciary treats the criminal, when a murderer should be hung, the sentence given is a few days in jail only to be released to kill again. When a criminal raped and murder a child, the DNA of the murderer was found on the victim by a FBI agent, and when presented to the court a dumb lawyer told a dumb judge that DNA evidence is not good enough to convict…

    • Francisco Etienne-Dods Telemaque
      January 18, 2016

      for the murder, and the judge agreed and set the murderer free what do you anticipate next?

      In Carnival, a son of a member of the judiciary was video tape stabbing a victim, when that evidence was presented in court, the magistrate rejected it claming that is not evidence. That is Dominica, I consider Dominica to be a lawless place, the police and courts are no more than a bunch of jokers existing in the most backward place on earth!

      There are dozens of unsolved murder’s on the North of Dominica, including in the Village of Wesley where even a relative, and a former girlfriend are murdered, and the police has simply ignored their murder!

      • DA Native in Texas
        January 19, 2016

        Am I to believe that DNA and Video Footage of a crime was presented and was rejected? If this is really true, then we are really done with. In almost all civilized countries that I have read and continue to read about, DNA evidence almost always the leads to conviction. Sometimes a defence team can try to bargain for a lighter sentence if and when DNA evidence is presented, but you will not go free. My sympathies to the family of the deseased lady. Dodds I feel the same way as you. The last time I visited my village I had this very uncomfortable feeling walking through the village, constantly looking over my shoulders. All that being said, there is crime every where, but the way these criminals are walking free at home leaves one to wonder if there are special laws on the books only for our beloved country.

      I have a religious song, entitled: “Let’s Keep Praying For Each Other.” You could play religious songs with the thought of Dominica and nationals in mind. The saying: “Those who sing pray twice.” :lol:

      That is precisely what I said! The murder who raped and murder the child is set free, never to be tried again, simply because of the backwardness of the court, and maybe corruption played a part also.

      The video taping of the stabbing occurred between three, and four years ago. Here another. My nephew was found dead in the village of Wesley with his throat slashed, someone went to the police and confessed to the murder of my nephew. The polices let him walk claiming the confessed killer is incompetent, and does not know what he is talking about.

      The police let him walk, about three days later, the confessed killer, was also found dead, with his throat cut in the same fashion to that of my nephew, any idiot would realize by then the confessed man was involved, if he did not do the killing himself, he knew who killed my nephew, as such he was murdered also to keep him silent. The government, the police, and the entire judicial system in Dominica a all incompetent!

      To begin with, do you know why the woman was killed?
      Absolutely no one has the right to kill anyone, even though they are unemployed and in need of. If people do, their problem is because they have rejected God and followed his enemy, the detractor and destroyer of souls, Satan and his corteges.
      Do not blame the government for any such thing. Do not debase the government. It is not responsible for people and their actions. The murderer of this woman chose to kill her. This had nothing to do with the government.
      Some of you should be arrested and charged for blaming the government especially under this circumstance. If you have common sense, utilize it.
      When murderers or those who do other evil stand before God, He will hold them accountable for their actions. Therefore keep this in mind and leave the government alone. You are wrongly accusing the government.

Today my heart groans and my spirit cries out to God – How long Lord until you deliver us from evil?

      Jesus warned that the days before His coming would be evil. The Bible says “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rules of the darkness of this age, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all to stand, stand… Ephesians 6:12-14

    I see some people blaming police and government for some of these acts that are being done in the country. This happened in an area where it could’ve happened in any other place, the police can’t go sit on every inch of the island waiting on crimes to be committed. It starts with each of us to turn in people who have these illegal guns at our homes. It starts with us that when the police do their jobs we don’t cry them down and saying when they should enforce the law. The thing I would like to see the police and the telecommunication companies working together where, you shut down all communication in an area where you’re going to do road blocks and house searches of known criminals. No one can call to say there’s road block here. With all these people here crying now if they caught these people today some fool would come and say they’re not the first and they won’t be the last. You fight crimes by saying what you know, police in the states don’t sit on every corner.

    Sad situation, but crime is crime whether it is stoning the police by political demonstrators, blocking of the roads and hindering the movement of law abiding citizens, stealing, and murder. You see, in Dominica there are of people who want to be selective about the criminal activities that the police should investigate. In this regard the UWP and its supporters come to mind. The stoning of police and the destruction of property by the UWP and its supporters are criminal acts yet when the police investigate and arrest people for their actions they are criticized. I do hope that the person or persons responsible for the murder of this individual are swiftly brought to justice.

We are too quick to jump start politics.It is an evil act and no government would agree to these behaviours.Police alone cannot find the criminals we in communities must work with the police to solve those problems. I wish to also condem the statements made about the government. Dominica is my home for life and cannot condem my country; however we all need to reach out and be our brothers keeper.

    I believe it is time for the people to support their police instead of crucifying them when they use the law to settle things.The system do not support their police men. So when people talk about the police not doing anything they must know what they are saying. If police fire upon things that are coming towards them and people get hurt or killed,what are they going to say. Drug men etc are paying off people in the system starting from lawyers,judges down to the little man on the streets. Young people don’t matter what a government put to improve the system, at the moment they love the quick money and don’t like to work hard for it. It have people in good jobs and thy themselves will still steal and kill for what they want.I don.t blame the police for anything but when a son or a daughter gets arrested for a crime and the parents runs to the chief of police or a pal rep trying to avoid them from paying time for the crime.At the moment customs is not considered a law enforcement.

    This is a very sad day in Dominica and most importantly woodfordhill. It sure does not look good for Dominica and the Woodfordhill / Calibishie area. Hence nonetheless. before making assertions, we should wait for the law to carry out its investigation on the matter. Since we don’t know as yet the circumstances surrounding this sad situation. Hence, the loss of any life is sad to all. Lets give the law a chance to execute its job. However, the allege homicide may be atributably open to any reason for the loss of life. As mentioned above , lets give the investigation a chance to materialize the findings. Sadly though, this is not only a (family loss), but a declaration of ‘war’ on the commercial trade on the island. What a sad shame!.

    Brutal attacks are becoming commonplace on Dominica. Call the police and hope they arrive. Often times they will tell you they have no transportation! Other times they say they will come and they never do. How can people feel safe without confidence in those who are supposed to serve and protect them? The society is very broken and the government isn’t doing much to fix it. Those that can, will leave this place and those that cannot will stay and suffer through poverty and brutality. This is very, very disturbing. Domminica needs a complete overhaul. It is time to take it to the streets and demand CHANGE. We are being brutally assaulted on a regular basis. Female lives matter!

Stop being ignorant man and google Murders in places like Guatemala, Panama in central America with murders over 400 annually?. Its unfortunate and bad enough but don’t give Dominica this image because it’s clear that you don’t know what is going on around the Caribbean.

    This is very sad and we sympathize with the family and friends of the victim.

Indeed, what might have turned out to be the brutal death of two senior citizens one Christmas Morning has been totally ignored and downplayed, evidently. This is just one example. Double standards, hypocrisy, greed, corruption, graft and poverty plus a decrepit justice system where the perception is that there is no justice, will have these results. We must pray for Dominica because unlike other places, there is no apparent development that is normally said to be accompanied by crime. Talk about the worst of both worlds. Dominicans seem to be oblivious to these things because political party comes first, with Dominica and their own children trailing far behind. The people who travel to vote illegally, I hope you ponder these things seriously

    This puts our lovely country to disrepute. News spread like wildfire. Visitors will be afraid to visit.
    When someone is killed, we know that person is deprived of his/her life which is a serious matter. The perpetrator has forfeited his/her freedom and does not deserve to be free.
    In bygone years, the result of murder was hanging and/or life in prison without parole. Government, please do something about that. Since it appears death by hanging is abolished, the next punishment is life with no parole.
    They cannot go about killing people and then their attorneys ask for bail and leniency. if it occurred to your family what would be your reaction? What goes for one goes for all.

    The current atmosphere in Dominica is conducive to all kinds of evil and therefore, things of that nature do not surprise me. For example, law officers are charged with the responsibility of keeping us safe, but these guys are demotivated as these days a crime is based on who does it.

    Another significant thing is, officers are not happy because to them promotion is based on the color you wear instead of performance. For example, under this administration, No officer can work at the airport or any of the ports, if they are not singing the songs of Skerrit. Not one! So none Skerritites, regardless of their experience are either shipped to traffic or a low key station.

    We promoting officers that are sweeping large sums of money by mistake, some doing their dirty work for them, knowing they are protected, while orders were hand picked. So they keep calling talk show to voice their support for Skerrit, while others can’t even use a blue underwear. Skerrit has destroyed Dominica good

    Some people get squeamish about concerned citizens harping about crime. In developed countries, such a high profile crime would bring out the Chief of Police and Justice Minister to the scene of the crime, visiting with the deceased family to underline the serious implications. Let us make a fresh start and get input from all stakeholders.

        Facts, the government can do plenty about the volume of crimes in the country. No human alive can see into the future, therefore no police officer, or government minister can go to bed and see a thief or a murderer committing a crime, or knows someone was about to commit a crime, to go and stop them.

        However, there are tools at the disposal of the government which they can use in solving all of the unsolved murders in the country, they refuse to utilize. Agree that the Dominica police are incompetent, lack crime fighting techniques.

        Nevertheless, all Skerrit has to do is ask the FBI, or Scotland Yard for assistance in investigating, and capturing the criminals. Skerrit is reluctant to do that; and has made no effort in this regard. The services of the two organizations are used on all of the other Caribbean islands, in solving difficult crimes.

Since you have chosen to immediately attach a political (anti-government) cause to the incident and appear to be of the view that if you and/or your alternative government held the reigns of power there would zero violence in Dominica, please with the readers of this site a single sensible action that you would take to achieve this zero violence.

      my Dear crime is something difficult to control. the government can’t control criminals mind. The Crime Rate is way higher in other islands in the Caribbean. I hate when people keep blaming the government. The community need to step up to and give the information the police needs to stop crime..

      You are so right. Dominica is the only country in the entire world where there is crime and yes, the government is to be blamed….smh!

      @bubbleboyrismality, check well and listen well too; when crimes are committed and the criminals are caught who quickly come their defense! It’s not the Government for sure. Take for example Lennox and Pinard case. Who were the ones pledging to pay for the LONG TONGUE of the opposition leader.

      That is our wish but we all have seen that dominica is the only west indian island where murderers get bail ,charged and walk out of the court room freely to go back home..That is the way the gov’t is making money ..one out of 100 people gets compensation after a court case,both the parties spend only to hear that there is a discharge at the end,,the criminal pays the gov’t and not the victim…soon dominica will become worse than jamaica and trinidad..because if they can kill a business woman do you think that they will have mercy on a man ?no! I feel safer in a country with over a million people and with serial killers than to be in dominica with a population of less than 80,000 people..

    Crime and criminal activities are out of control on island.The police, the minister of national security, the government BY THEIR ACTION or inaction clearly suggest that they have surrendered to the criminals! Criminal activities will only be controlled NOT STOPPED,if there is a plan. These people HAVE NO PLAN TO TACKLE THIS PROBLEM!

      NO! I would not state that the government and other authority have surrendered to criminal activities. As criminals have become more godless, they are more bold and heartless than ever.
      If you have a PLAN provide your suggestion to the authorities. It must be a feasible one which will be effective.

      How about you make a suggestion. What do you think should be done?

      I came to dominica in 2010 ,2015 ,where i visited a section in grand-bay called hagly ,bullets are being fired every afternoon like it is in syria ,i have stood up to the police and let them know that they cannot scare me ,i will stand in front of them and say what i have to say,they will never pay attention to me if i make a report because they see me as a threat … i prefer dying than put my head down for these corrupted police officers that are living in the police station ,filling their tummy and get fat while they sit on their back sides…how can police sit in a police station and never walk around to see what is happening,even during hard winter police walk about in foreign countries why in a hot climate police are partying all day long,,shame on dominca…investors keep away from dominica..

        I sought of agree with you on officers sitting in the station and never walk around to see whats going on. You see, that part is because politicians complain when the officers walk around and try fighting crimes as it happens. Then the Chief transfers them soon as a politician belch bubbles ………………….

        Therefore, the replacing officer gets the message and sits his behind at the station for fear of trying to fight crime, then getting transferred and black balled. That is the problem my friend. Also, in places like Grand Bay, one of the DLP’ “jarden patat” (DLP stronghold) officers are afraid of tackling crimes head on, so unless a crime is committed they stay out of the “prevention” aspect. Thats what happens when politicians run the force and appoints a ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,as chief. A takforce squad should be permanently station in Calibishie.

        Assertive, Never Aggressive…

      Hanging is too lenient.
      Drag him behind a truck until he is in shreds, then parade his shreds through Calibishie, Woodfordhill, Wesley, etc.
