Monday, August 21, 2017

Police are investigating the murder of a Vincentian national nicknamed “Satan” who was found stabbed to death at his Matelot home on Saturday.

According to police reports, Fitzgerald Dasent, 59, was found dead by his stepson around 5.30 pm at his Samuel Street, home.

Police said they had no motive for the killing. Dasent, police said, migrated to T&T about 20 years ago.

In an unrelated incident, Grand Riviere resident Dane Charles is now warded in a critical condition at hospital after he was shot while liming at a bar on Saturday night in the district.

Police said around 8 pm Charles was approached by a gunman who shot him before running away.

Charles was at the bar for a Great Race party when he was shot.

Police suspect the shooting was due to an ongoing feud he had with the shooter.
