The first suicide in St Vincent and the Grenadines for 2020 was recorded at the beginning of this week in Barrouallie.

A family member told SEARCHLIGHT yesterday that the family has “absolutely no comment” with regard to the Barrouallie resident’s death.

But someone in the community said that he believes Charles’ death is a shock to everyone living in the town.

“Nobody expected it, because as a rasta, he burn fire on them things,” the resident said, while noting that he saw the deceased at least three days before he died.
