FREDERIKSTED — Police said they need your help to solve a fatal stabbing that happened in Williams Delight over the weekend.
The 911 Emergency Call Center received a report of a fatal stabbing at 7:42 p.m. Saturday, unofficial police sources said.
Police arriving on the scene found Berchan Joseph, 55, lying in the road at the intersection of Main Street and 6th Avenue.
Joseph was not moving and died at the scene from his injuries, the sources said. He was later pronounced dead by the doctor on duty at the Juan F. Luis Hospital.
The Criminal Investigation Bureau is looking for “Eddie,” a black man in his late 40s or early 50s in connection with the murder.
Eddie is said to hang out at the grocery store near the entrance to Williams Delight closest to the Queen Mary Highway.
The CIB claims that it is investigating the murder, but police on St. Croix have less than a 10 percent solve rate.
The death of Joseph is the territory’s 45th homicide of the year. There have been 24 murders on St. Thomas and 21 murders on St. Croix in 2017.
No official police sources were used in the culling of this factual report.
