Anyone got more info about the homicide near UVI-STT today?
According to today's paper, it was the 27th homicide this year. Here are stats from last year.
The only thing the article added that I didn't see mentioned in the Source, is that police followed a white SUV believing suspect was in that vehicle. No other info on suspect.
There has been, it seems , a lot more crime these past couple of months.
I hear you. My perception is also that it is sad on STX from what I see my friends posting on Facebook and those discussions. First time I've ever heard several friends who are native multi-generational Crucians discussing giving up and leaving for Florida.

Talk about sending an invitation for criminals to commit even more acts:
Snitches get stitches like punk ass bitches. This is nothing knew. No one talks anywhere. You want your family dead next?
We need stats on other types of crime to see if there has really been an increase overall. I couldn't find anything in a quick google search, but the info should be somewhere.
I looked for USVI crime stats once, but the only reliable stats were for murder, and that seems to be because it's the most obvious, hard-to-hide crime, and because the newspapers are doing the counting. VIPD doesn't keep good stats.
