Rewards being offered for information on recent murders in SVG

Persons who have information on certain crimes committed in St Vincent and the Grenadines (SVG) now have financial incentive to cooperate with investigators.

This, as rewards have been offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the persons responsible for the deaths of seven people who were killed in three different incidents here.

Sherol Knights, 26 of Dorsetshire Hill was founded chopped to death at around 12:15 a.m. on Monday, July 10 in the home she shared with her father.

A $10,000 reward is being offered by Knights’s family members in collaboration with the Royal St Vincent and the Grenadines Police Force (RSVGPF). Family members are urging persons who may have information relating to the gruesome killing to come forward.

EC$50,000 is being offered for information about the Wednesday, July 19 shooting deaths of five males; Lamont “Dutchie” Hector, Dondre Hillocks, Jamal Bobb, Ricky Taylor, and Kashie Primus.

The males were gunned down while liming in the Harbour Club area of Kingstown.

Also, Sarah Gooding, the wife of deceased businessman Frankie Mitchell-Gooding of Bequia, is offering a US$10,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of her husband’s killers.

A police release said that investigations showed that Mitchell-Gooding and a friend were getting into a car on January 21, 2023, around 7:30 p.m., when an attacker approached and shot him.

A CND$100,000 reward is also being offered for Cody Casey, a man who is wanted in Canada and is believed to be somewhere in SVG.

Casey is wanted by the Vancouver Police Department and in April 2022, weeks away from facing trial on 17 drug and firearms offences, he cut off his court-mandated ankle monitor and fled the country.

A poster making the rounds on social media and bearing the markings of Canada’s Be on the Look Out (BOLO) Program, claimed that Casey, 36, may be in SVG.

The no-strings-attached reward money has many times in the past caused family members, associates and friends of wanted fugitives to give them up as the only condition for this reward to be paid is that the tip leads to the arrest the person.

There are no other conditions. Casey’s eventual trial has nothing to do with this reward being paid out unlike the rewards being offered in SVG.

Anyone with information can call Vancouver police at 604-717-9979 or make anonymous tips to Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
