No proof whatsoever a crime was comitted here.
It's people like you that take pleasure in scaring people. You don't have a clue about the facts of this case but henny penny is here to say the sky is falling. I think you have a racist intention since the island natives are african. I don't see you posting any travel warnings not to go to Wisconsis (3 tourists shot with an assault rifle while taking a leisurely swim) or don't travel in Canada if you would like to avoid getting your head sawed off while you sleep.
Better yet, come visit your homestate of California with our beautiful forest fires, gang violence, pollution and earthquakes. You don't even have enough room in your prisons to keep all the criminals in.
Get a life. Try to be fair to the island. We don't know any of the facts about this case.
My sentiments too. We all know you have a thing against SXM so let it rest and get a life.
I agree with you 3, there is too much unknown to determine that a "tourist was murdered". The fact that he was bleeding from a cut on his head and a prescription bottle was found nearby could indicate an illness that could have led to his untimely demise.
Chuteman, take a ride through LA and let me know how safe you feel!
Well the new articles out today are now saying that they have ruled out foul play.
I still don't know what to make out of it and we should all wait until they divulge what has happened whether it was a suicide, accident, foul play or a host of other reasons at an appropriate time.
This is a very sad case.
I wanted to go to St Marten in Jan and this Chuteman is really scaring me.
January is fine to travel. The issues we are seeing are low season related (annual occurence) and a struggling economy. There is usually a big sweep on immigrants and crime on the island every fall prior to high season. This high season should be the same as last season if the economy remains the same or worsens. If the global economy continues to worsen that all bets are off.
I totally agree we don't these scare tactics, but need to be aware- I live on Long Island, NY and we had a number of murders in the past couple of months, some pretty nasty. And let’s not forget the recent greyhound bus murder this week where a passenger was decapitated.
We leave for St. Martin tomorrow and we are looking forward to great food, people and relaxation.
You all need to chill out on Chuteman. All he/she did was post a link with the title "another tourist victim". Victim could have meant foul play, could have meant victim of a fall, victim of an accident, victim could mean alot of things. All Chuteman did was post a link alerting people to news report. Accusing him/her of being racist, etc. is juvenile, bordering on slander. If I were traveling to SXM, or vacationing in the area at the time, I'd be thankful for the post.
