Vandal was killed in Silver Lake

The police are investigating the death of a 17-year-old who was killed in the community of Silver Lake on Wednesday at around 8:00 pm.

One man is in custody in relation to the matter.

The dead teen has been identified as Freddy Claude Vandal, who was born in Guadeloupe but is Dominican by descent.

Police PRO, Acting Inspector Pellam Jno Baptiste said the police responded to reports of gunshots being fired in the community and upon arrival the lifeless body of Vandal was found near the river in the area.

He said there were several marks of violence on his body including a suspected gunshot wound.

Vandal was officially pronounced dead at the Princess Margaret Hospital.

Photos circulating on social media show what appear to be several severe chop wounds to the side of Vandal’s head.

Earlier unconfirmed reports said the victim had stolen a bike and was returning it when he was attacked.

A coroner’s inquest will be convened in the matter.

Anyone with information which can assist the police in their investigations can contact the Criminal Investigations Department at telephone numbers 266-5164, 266-5165 and 266-5119 or Crime Stoppers Dominica at telephone number 1-800-8477.

The incident took place on Wednesday evening

    Its just my take on things, but has anyone else noticed that when these things happen, that there is very little effort by the police to solve these crimes? Reason because its crimes among ghetto people, and there is no benefit to them. If they had heard about herb or money, they would be busy turning Silver Lake and Morne Prosper upside down n picking up much more than one suspect. Many have been murdered, kidnapped without a trace, seriously injured but all we seeing in the media is police burning ganga fields etc and no mention of moneys found. I really wonder why a natural herb is more illegal than murder or molesting young children?

    So u mean to tell me there is even a video goin around showing a number of men doing what lead to this young man’s death and up to now, only one person in custody? Give me a break. The police want to be listening to all phone conversations and tracking all text messages to see where, how and when people moving a lil herb and does come down with vanloads to burn people farms, but a serious crime like this happens and they talking bout one person in custody and matter being investigated? Oh please, how hard is it to trace back the video to the original phone cus we know that person was on scene to make video. Instead of violating all other privacy of people, put y’all skills and equipment to work. Then again y’all dont care, you just wait for ghetto people to kill off each other. If it was a Government Minister’s child, or that of a police Officer or a Prominent boujwa, I am sure many would be in custody already.

    So one less to worry about. Freddy lived as an “Outlaw, banging, A G” And they usually end up dead at 17yrs you cannot take someone property and return it. That’s not how the code of the streets works .He did not come to “D.A” from guadeloupe from start class at the state colllege or help with, storm relief, he was “banging” Ok let just have a party at his funeral, and bury him smiling, and pour some “D Special” and have a toast. Nobody should cry, because, probably before he said goodbye, he was a thug till he die, So let him ride. Rest in peace young “G”

    Its funny how certain Dominicans would accept anybody with open arms , Freddy was well known for his criminal acts and yet still you all would defend him “allu didnt know the man, he was a nice boy” “allu have proof he kill ppl?” . He left me mourning back in 2012 when he shot and killed my friend in Guadeloupe and I’m not the only one. Majority of crimes he did, Dominica would be his hideout which was known by the French,. It was very hard seeing an actual human go down in this manner, seemed like it was an animal but you reap what you sow // see link for those still defending him for his crimes , well i guess the news in his country is lies too ( http://www.rci.fm/actu/faitsdivers/Ti_Freddy_retrouve_mort_dans_une_ile_voisine )

    The whole situation is sad and i see no point in anyone rejoicing or pointing fingers. I have read a lot of comments on here and most of them are crying down Silver lake, the man was murdered in the area but that does not mean is people from the area that killed him. Please my people before you all starting running that mouth piece and radio passion fruit make certain the story is legit and adds up. When the culprits are apprehended i hope you all come on here and apologies to the people of Silver lake… As’e…Hotep

      There is a good chance you are correct.

      Drugs and crime go hand in hand.

      The USE of drugs causes crime not just the business (sale) of drugs although crime is involved in the drug business.

      This is why the war against drugs is also a war against crime.

      People who advocate for the freedom to produce, sell, buy, and use drugs – legal or illegal – are doing the wrong thing. They are motivated by the desire for financial gain and sensual pleasure with no consideration of the hurt it brings to others or the damage it does in society. And this is why informed people with good values have such appreciation for the police in Dominica, especially the drug squad. They are doing magnificent work combating this evil.

    Nothing has been mentioned about parents that put children into this world when they are not capable or willing to assume the responsibility of bringing them up properly. Are we surprised then when such children, growing up without guidance, proper love and care turn into feral human beings? I think we should start right there and not consider it a right to produce offspring but a duty to look after them. Nobody asks to be born but everyone has a father and a mother but do not make babies if you can not accept the responsibility of acknowledging their existence and care for them and expect society to accept the burden instead. That is not fair to the children.

      The situation with some of them, they may not have set out to have a baby but it so happened, if you know what I mean. Some will say it was a mistake. Some men
      will state the child is not theirs. You know the continuing story about that.
      These parents, especially those who are single should receive some advice and guidance from the Social Service Department. They are left on their own to bring forth a child and nurture him/her, some as single parents. This is also the cause of poverty and some blame the government for poverty and lack of jobs.
      Unemployed people who are also poor could be a hardship, a burden on the economy. The critics do not realize that.
      Some of the men cannot afford to support a child much more for children. Some have more than one child and with different children. Some women also have children with different men.

      • Face the Facts
        April 15, 2016

        How often some mothers take the fathers to Court for child support.
        Children need both mother and father. Some fathers are not available to nurture their child/children. The women must do so alone. This could account for the reason why some children become lawless and get into trouble.
        Some years ago Canada established an online registry of dead-beat dads. I do not know if it is still in existence. I never accessed it.
        If the men are employed a certain portion of their income could be garnished fr child support. Some of them must pay child-support through the Court System.
        Again, these children should have a mother and father in the home to also nurture them.
        There are children who are hurting because of not having a father who loves them, one in the home; likewise a mother.

      A recent case in Toronto, a mother who is a drug addict, gave her young daughter to a couple, friends, to take care of her. They ill-treated the child to the point, she died.
      The case was before the Court. The couple was sent to prison. I think for 25 years.
      This story is a sad one. From what I heard through the Media, the child did not want to live with the couple. I suppose she was accustomed to her mother. Now the mother is blaming the Children’s Aid – Child Welfare, somewhat blaming them, saying they could have done something for her child.
      So, there are many stories and some sad ones why some children become street kids and commit crimes. If they live to adulthood they continue committing crimes. It makes one wonder, who really cares especially about these children, some who are fatherless and with irresponsible mothers?

    Someone sent me the actual crime scene poto, this young man was hacked mercilessly. There were several deep lacerations to the face and skull of the deceased, an ear was completely severed. Additional deep lacerations to what appeared to be the right elbow shows the exposed meat and bones of the deceased. The very suspicious thing about the crime scene photo however is the lack of blood on or around the deceased. This, of course, presents a need for further investigation into the death of this young man as it appears that he may either have been dead long enough BEFORE he was chopped up to facilitate the lack of blood. In the alternative, the possibility arises that the deceased could have been thrown IN the river at some point and bled out there. It is even possible that the deceased crawled out of the river with his last grasps of life and finally succumbed to his injuries on shore. In any event, I am not being paid to speculate so we will await the investigation results.

      he was definitely chopped up after he was dead.

      April 15, 2016

      From what I’ve seen so far, this is not the actual crime scene. This young man was first shot long before he was chopped. The offenders kept the body untill they thought it was safe to move the body. After finding their dumping spot, they then proceeded by causing severely bodily harm to the head , neck, n arm of thedeceased victim. Such strategy was used in order to confuse the investigators as to what really happened. Two different weapons were used and it’s obvious that, that’s a job of more than one person.
      No blood around the victim or his wounds? That scene has was well disguised. Witnesses need to come forward n the apprehended suspect needs to be cracked.

      I agree. He was such a young man; only 17 years.
      If he stole a bike, this was no reason for the man to do this to him. Furthermore, he brought it back. He may have wanted to turn his life around and did not get the opportunity to do so.
      God knows all about his life from the moment he was born until he died. We hope that God forgave him for whatever he did in the past. If you are a Catholic, pray for the repose of his soul. I will make note of his name and do likewise. God is merciful!
      We Catholics believe that God created Purgatory where souls whom God forgave will make atonement and then enter Heaven. No one really dies perfectly so as to enter Heaven immediately when they die, no matter how much they know the Holy Bible and quote from it. I also have some writing on Purgatory.
      Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord and let perpetual light shine upon him. May he rest in peace. Amen! Lord, have mercy!

    Whilst back in Dominica our church keep numerous open air meetings in these three spots. Silver Lake,
    Tarish Pit and Gutter Village,and I know of many other assemblies that held crusades or open air meetings in these communities as well..
    We use to visit these three locations so often that I can recall telling some of the members, what’s wrong with the people up at St. Aroma, Up there in Goodwill, yes many are rich folks but ain’t they in need of the SAVIOUR too..We are too take the gospel everywhere….
    I do not know if it’s still happening today…but I doubt these areas are in a lack of the gospel…
    Let’s not forget the days are getting darker and darker…And I know nothing about the young man ,certainly can’t comment about him personally but if it’s true,and I say ( IF ), what some of the people are saying about him when he resided in guadeloupe then the old folks would say..As he live so he died….

      God is the judge of hearts. No one has the authority to judge hearts. You can judge actions if the person has done something to you. However, you cannot take it upon yourself to assume that the people are in need of salvation especially when they go to church.
      Peoples faith and a fervent one is known only to God; not others.
      One day God will judge all you people who think you are holy and perfect than others because you joined a church and read the Holy Bible.
      Some of you left the Catholic Church. Little do you know what a grave mistake you made. One day it will be revealed to you.
      Aggressiveness is not the work of Our Lord Jesus Christ; nor is the Catholic Church. You cannot force people to do what they do not want to do and are happy doing, namely, worshiping in their church.
      Some of you err. This is why your prayers bear no fruits. They have no power and strength. Too many religions in Dominica which Dominicans could do without.

      Chris Mann:

      THANK YOU for replying to my comment.

      I appreciate the information.

      I am glad to hear that the gospel (1 Corinthians 15:1-4) has been preached in these localities and I hope this work is still going on. The gospel will do the people no good if they do not accept it. ” …it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth.” (Romans 1:16)

      Those who know the life changing power of the gospel are apt to blame a lack of it when they see people given over to such moral chaos and violence. But thank God for the elders and saints who are exercised about the regions beyond, and have gone forth with the word of life.

      Sincerely, Rev. Donald Hill. Evangelist.

    you will hear some amazing things from an ignorant person
    This boy was a trouble-maker,he would invite himself in peoples parties, and steal peoples jewellery
    He was a wanted man in Guadeloupe, came to Dominica to escape the law.
    But he should have told that this is not Guadeloupe,
    And this is awaiting all those who choose the street instead of a school bench,believing that fast money is the way to go. Who behave like the teachers are troubling them, but rather smoke behind the school than behaving in class.
    This serve as a lesson

      Why a wanted man in Guadeloupe can escape the law in Dominica and walk freely here instead of sitting in jail ???

      • whoiamhuh
        April 15, 2016

        because for a murder he do, too many people wanted his die. so he flew to Dominica to escape death or the French Law. (Sorry 4 bad english)

      • ATKINSON
        April 16, 2016

        Because the criminals know dominica and guadeloupe does not have extradition treaty. so when the police in guadeloupe want them from a crime they run to dominica

      • Pete
        April 16, 2016

        whoiamhuh, yeah I know that.
        So the question is : why do we here let walk murderers or rapists convicted or wanted in other countries instead of arresting them and sending them where they’re wanted ? Those people can also be dangerous while they are in Dominica and I don’t think it’s just and safe to let them be able to walk here freely.

  29. April 14, 2016

    Sad but with the story I know that boy would be murder anytime he is wanted in gwada and see Wat happen to him in da that is why all you young boys think that thug life is good but thug life these bring you death stop coming gwada and take people things kill people and run da young men stop the violence to much is to much and that age to be doing all those crime that’s sad . Young boy get murder for a bike it doesn’t matter how bad he was he should not be killed there is a god.rip young boy young men there is a saying if you live by the gun you die by the gun so let’s stop the violences because it not bring us nowhere

Your comments are disgusting, what if it was your son, friend, cousin, in law nd list goes on! I salute the boys on the block!

Boys on the block have loved ones too You would be surprise; you find some of the most loving people on the BLOCK! R.I.P my boy!

      Have you taken time to read your comment? do you hear how you sound? Grow up my boy. Young men want to sit on a block whole day and say they cant find anything to do. Hatians are flocking in D/A and they all find something to do because they know what is hard work. Learn a skill and do something for yourselves. i know jobs are not available as they used to. stop using that as am excuse. God help those who help themselves. Sit down and think of ideas to better your life. When you sit on a block whole day with no ambition at one point you going to get board and start thinking the fast life and start stealing people things and the drugs and gun life. What do you prefer; living a life where you can accomplish something you are proud of? or living a life where you have to be watching over your shoulder every minute cause your lifestyle? Fast money gets you nowhere in life. Hard work pays off. So stop blaming people for your problems and make a change for yourselves. There is room for change

      This boy he steal, he was killed my brother he spoke, he was killed.
      The law in Dominca allows these things to happen as all murderers are on bail.
      We the family of the victims are left to suffer. ” What goes around comes around”. The evil that men do does not just live after them but will be with them till the end of time.
      Those who commit these crimes their day will come as every dog have its day.
      Let us pray for the people of Dominica so that they inturn will respect each other and know that they did not give life therefore it is not their duty to take life.
      I cry everyday for my murdered brother. he was a candle in the wind. We know he is resting in peace but the guy who murdered my brother , the tears i cry daily, will fall on you as evil will not set him free. I pray justice will be done.

    DNO is my only window on Silver Lake but what I see is a very troubled locality.

    My heart goes out to these people. They are getting in the news for all the wrong reasons. We are hearing of drug bust after drug bust, illegal guns, and crimes ranging from theft to murder.

    A spirit of sheer hate and the need for revenge seems to rule the day. A man steels a bike. While he is trying to return it somebody shoots at him. Since when does theft bring the death penalty? The bullet misses! Then somebody jumps him with a cutlass and hacks him to death!

    Not a good place to live and raise a family.

    For some reason people with bad connections seem attracted to Silver Lake. It is probably because the place is far enough removed from the larger centers to give privacy, and a place to hide where their operations can be kept out of sight.

    It is a place I would like to go and conduct an evangelistic crusade :!:

    Sincerely, Rev. Donald Hill. Evangelist. 8)

    • April 14, 2016

      Jesus is the healer of sin sick souls and the mender of broken hearts. It is Jesus alone who can rebuild broken lives.

      What Silver Lake needs is the uncompromised preaching of the gospel; the good news of how Jesus Christ by His shed blood and death upon the cross paid the terrible penalty for the sins of all mankind; and how God raised Him from the dead to show He had accepted that sacrifice. All who believe this, and receive Christ as their personal Savior, are forgiven and receive eternal life!

      At the heart’s door the Savior is knocking,
      At the heart’s door fast closed by sin.
      At the heart’s door the Savior is waiting,
      Oh, draw back the bolt and let Him in.

      Christ not only saves those who believe. He delivers from the bondages of the old life and makes the individual a new person.

      No medication, counselling, or psycho-therapy can do in years what Jesus Christ can do in minutes when you surrender to Him :!:

      Sincerely, Rev. Donald Hill. Evangelist.

There is plenty of blame to go around in what has become our young men behavior.Did any of us reach out? We take what we heard he did and just condemn him. The person that chop him, are you God? The same way he was tormented,you will be too because you did not give life to him. The cycle will continue and what will the supporters say then? We can condemn wrong and still have a heart ❤ but on this comment section we come across as heartless and ruthless and that lets me know the intent of some of us. A few days ago we were condemning molestation of our young ladies and now we cannot condemn murder but want to come on here and let people know you a privy to some information.

When someone is doing well they get jealous and when they are doing bad they complain. What do you all people up to. God has judgement for the wicked. Live and let Live.

We’re contented with our youths pull up by the road side all day smoking their lives away. Their lives are vertically going up in smoke literally!!! While one cannot directly blame the government for this chopping of the head, some blame is to be shared by them. They are the ones who set the foundation for this nation of unrest. We are becoming Jamaicanized so to speak. Senseless killings are now becoming a common theme down here. Just the other day somebody take a gunshot for $50. Some of these criminals have given up hope on life because they sense the hopelessness in the atmosphere, they sense that Dominica doesn’t hold anything positive for them so they vent their frustrations through these crimes. A jobless society = more crimes. Remember that

    I don’t know what it is about this place but that Silver Lake area seems to be the central district of all what is not good in Dominica, the root of all evil. They need prayers, some sort of divine intervention. They’re too quick to pull that trigger, too quick to stab that knife, too quick to slash that cutlass. Maybe just maybe more police patrols in the area would help, maybe the presence of police officers would deter them from doing these heartless acts. But then again I doubt that our underfinanced, broke, lack of resources corrupt police force have the skill, knowledge, and money to make a real impact on the criminal jobless society that their boss Skeritt has created. All they’re good at and quick to respond to is drugs. I’m expecting to get bashed for being political. Go right ahead. You all don’t realize that to fix a problem you have to address the root of it. If people had jobs to keep them occupied there would be less of these things happening. Face the Facts

        You do realize that the crime rate per capita in Dominica is at-least 5 times higher than “America.” This includes crime ridden cities such as Detroit and Chicago which could be 1000s of miles away from where you live.

        For a country that relies on tourism it is not good for Dominica be on a “countries to avoid” list due to crime.

        Also Barbados and Anguilla are “smaller countries,” with a much lower crime rate but I suppose we can keep pretending that nothing is wrong in DA?

      Would you blame Obama for every homicide in America?

      • April 27, 2016

        Of course not!

        But by approving sin which God Himself calls an abomination in Leviticus 18:22, and forbids in many other scriptures such as Romans 1:26,27 and 1 Corinthians 6:9,10, making sin legal, and giving it nation wide acceptance, he has created an atmosphere that is conductive to crime.

        If people do not have to obey God Almighty and keep HIS laws they sure do not have to obey Obama’s laws. If the laws of the Kingdom of God count for nothing why should people regard America’s laws :?:

        Obama is literally saying to his people:

        “You don’t have to obey God but you must obey me.”

        “You need not follow the Bible but you have to follow the American Constitution.”

        Make no mistake about this. Genuine Christians – evangelicals – those who are born again believers in Jesus Christ – will NOT accept the implications of this godless thinking. But don’t worry. They will not commit murder because they live by the Bible.

        They need to turn to CHRIST.

        Because Christ shed His blood and died on the cross to pay the penalty for our sins and God raised Him from the dead to show He had accepted this sacrifice on our behalf God will save every person who believes this good news and receives Christ as his or her personal Savior.

        Please get your Bible and read Isaiah 53:5,6, Romans 5:6-8, John 3:16,17, and Revelation 3:20.

        Our sins will be forgiven and we will have eternal life. God will also break the chains of sin in our lives and set us free from the bondage of the devil.

        The Bible says “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold all things are become new.” And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, …”

    You had to chop him till he died? What have you gained? Your bike is no longer yours! You will get a couple years in prison (and I say this lightly, cause our justice system is lenient). What about your future? You have taken the life of someone else, his blood is forever on your hands!

Stop all you hypocrisy, all sin is sin, none not weighing heavier than the other. wrong is wrong, and i may not agree with the way this young man lived his life, but anyone with a heart, family or an inch of love for others in their heart, would feel some type of way when looking at the picture and the way he was killed. stop all you rubbish and hypocrisy. Dominica would never go anywhere, because most of us too hypocrite and bias. God alone can judge, and we forget to take into consideration that some of Jesus’ disciples were thieves and murderers, but Jesus saw good in them.

    How can a human being, with a mind and conscience, simply use a cutlass to chop another fellow man to his death? That cannot be!
