CHRISTIANSTED — A St. Croix refinery worker “fell” from a third-floor condo balcony to his death on Frenchman’s Hill in Estate St. John on Saturday night, authorities said.

The dead man has been identified as 66-year-old Randolph K. Sue of Mesa, Arizona. Sue was employed at the Limetree Bay Terminals on St. Croix’s south shore.

The investigation is underway to determine the exact cause of the incident, Derima said.

John McCarthy is primarily known for his investigative reporting on the U.S. Virgin Islands. A series of reports beginning in the 1990's revealed that there was everything from coliform bacteria to Cryptosporidium in locally-bottled St. Croix drinking water, according to a then-unpublished University of the Virgin Islands sampling. Another report, following Hurricane Hugo in 1989, cited a Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) confidential overview that said that over 40 percent of the U.S. Virgin Islands public lives below the poverty line. The Virgin Islands Free Press is the only Caribbean news source to regularly incorporate the findings of U.S. Freedom of Information Act requests.
