VIPD Releases Dramatic Photos Of ‘Person Of Interest’ Carrying A Gun After Fatal Shooting

FREDERIKSTED — The Virgin Islands Police Department released two dramatic photos of a “person of interest” in the fatal shooting that took place at the corners of Market and King Streets late Sunday afternoon.

In the photos, a Black man with a slim build in a white t-shirt with blue jeans is seen running down King Street — with a gun in his hand, according to the VIPD.

“The VIPD has a person of interest in the shooting that occurred in downtown Frederiksted on August 16 that left 27-year-old Joseph Leonardo Clarke dead,” VIPD spokesman Toby Derima said tonight.

Anyone who knows who the person is in these photos is urged to call the Crime Tip Line at (340) 778-4950 or Crime Stoppers USVI at (800) 222-TIPS.

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everything from coliform bacteria to Cryptosporidium in locally-bottled St. Croix drinking water, according to a then-unpublished University of the Virgin Islands sampling.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. John's articles have appeared in the BVI Beacon, St. Croix Avis, San Juan Star and Virgin Islands Daily News. He is the former news director of WSVI-TV Channel 8 on St. Croix.
