A well-known Saint Lucian female who recently described herself as a tourism worker is said to be receiving protection from local law enforcement. The woman who appeared on the HTS news this week, complained to reporters of receiving death threats following the discovery of the body of 22 year old Jamie Innocent. Innocent ,who resided at Morne Du Don, was found dead at Pigeon Island on April 9th, 2014. The woman, who disclosed that she was in a relationship with Innocent, said that she was scared for her life after receiving several calls and text messages from an unidentified individual or individuals. The STAR has also learnt that she is expecting her first child.
For several years now there have been calls for the authorities to put in place an effective witness protection program.
In an interview with the STAR last year, police commissioner Vernon Francois said that while it would be an expensive undertaking, it was necessary and that the RSLPF was looking to collaborate with regional counterparts on the matter.
