    Sincerest condolences to the relatives and close friends of the deceased. In this present time of anxiety and uncertainties, as the Coronavirus is reaping havoc on the island, there is no tolerance for any manmade induced suffering. May the perpetrator be apprehended and get the severest sentence he/she deserves.

    1. I think we can clearly see the need for cctv cameras to be installed on island.
    2. During a pandemic ppl should be worried about self preservation, but it seems like some people are busy with other things.
    3. Bring back the death penalty. Some people aren’t afraid of our prisons.
