A post mortem examination conducted on the body of 18-year-old Marvin Anthony Augustin of Grand Riviere, Gros-Islet has revealed that he sustained 56 stabs wounds.
The post mortem concluded that Augustin died from hemorrhagic shock secondary to a stab wound.
Augustin was found with his throat slashed Tuesday (April 21) on Trouya Beach in Gros Islet, hours after he went missing.
His lifeless body was discovered at around 1:30 p.m.
A missing person’s report was filed with the police the same day his body was discovered on the beach.
Augustin was last seen on Monday, April 20 at about 6 p.m.
A source close to Augustin, who preferred to remain anonymous, told St. Lucia News Online (SNO) the incident might have been a set up.
The source claimed Augustin went to meet another male on the beach, the same day he went missing. He allegedly met the person online via Facebook.
Apparently Augustin sent a photo of the person he was going to meet on the beach to his best friend.
Police are currently looking for a Jamaican man who has been identified as a possible suspect.
