Murder suspect out of hospital

Wednesday, July 18, 2018
Dillon Lucas

The key suspect in the fatal stabbing of Dillon Lucas outside the Cloud 9 nightclub in Debe last Sunday has been discharged from the San Fernando General Hospital.

Homicide investigators went to the man’s home yesterday where they recorded a statement from him.

An autopsy conducted on Lucas’s body at the Forensic Science Centre revealed that death was due to shock and haemorrhage, consistent with multiple stab wounds to the neck, chest, and stomach.

So far, officers have taken statements from over a dozen people who witnessed the fight which led to Lucas’s death last Sunday. Lucas, his 21-year-old common-law wife Shantal Roysam, her uncle Johnlane Ramkissoon, and six other friends including Kailash Seepersad went to lime at the nightclub when an argument ensued outside the club, leading to Lucas’s death. He spent two hours on the ground bleeding before he was taken to the hospital where he was pronounced dead on arrival.

Lucas, of Douglas Trace, St Mary’s was a father of five. Roysam said Lucas died protecting her and her sister after a stranger who began harassing them at the nightclub. —Radhica De Silva
