having lived in the islands for 15 years, I've seen how rumors get out of control... doens't take long for someone "respectable" to fall in the trap and give it credibility. surprising that captains dont' know any better.

i didn't know the victim, but spreading these kind of rumors on the web is plain wrong.

Cool Follow Up?

Does anyone have a follow up to this crime. The last I heard was that that Sylvester Lindsey appeared before the magistrate and was continued held with no bond. But the story ended there. Thanks

122 years would have been better, but some form of justice has been served, which is a good thing indeed.

I believe that any form of justice should be enough to make others with the same criminal spirit not commit such a thing, after all for the killer, nothing he will ever do would really forgive what has already done. Just a thought.

Cheers.

I figured an introduction couldn't hurt.

Alfred-

Don't take it the wrong way. Perhaps harsh, but IMO, not unwarranted.
I'm a firm believer in an eye for an eye in capital crimes of this nature. Others are of course welcome to their opinions without prejudice.

Cheers-

Not being familiar with the Antigua penal system - does this mean he will be inside for 22 years, or will he be able to apply for parole after say, 11 years?

I guess 22 is 22, and as I heard, a "Clean-up" goes every few years to clear some bunk for new inmates, so a life sentence is served in around 8-10 years!

Can anyone define crime anymore?!

Cheers!!
