MARIGOT–A suspect in the murder of a man found on the rocks near the whale observation platform in Baie Lucas, Coralita, last Sunday morning, was released from custody (garde à vue) on Tuesday, the Gendarmerie disclosed.
Capitaine Sylvain Jouault indicated the suspect from the French side was released due to lack of evidence to connect him to the murder at this early stage, but also because additional information he provided to interrogators warranted further investigation.
“There is still the possibility he will be re-arrested,” added Jouault.
Other media have named the victim as Joe Richardson, reportedly a former gang member from the Dutch side who was known to police from previous crimes. The young man in his 30s was shot to death, his body found by a dog walker around 8:00am.
Capitaine Jouault neither confirmed nor denied the name of the victim.
