    That would make it just over 2 murders a month! How is this island advertised as a tropical paridise? I am surprised people get off the cruise ships. A sad state for a beautiful island with so many nice people. This is like the old wild west of the US. Maybe the island needs the Texas Rangers to land and clean this mess up before the island drounds in blood!
