Episode Four of Virgin Islands Case Files Set to Air on WTJX-TV Channel 12 Tomorrow

CHRISTIANSTED — An all-new episode of Virgin Islands Case Files airs on WTJX-TV Channel 12 tomorrow January 19, featuring the unsolved murder cases of 16-year-old Tintawee Christian on St. Croix and Lewayne Fraser and Victor Smith on St. Thomas.

Tintawee, also known as Tawee, was a popular student athlete and honor student at Central High
School when he was gunned down in a hail of bullets in his Sion Farm neighborhood on August
17, 2020. Detectives believe the shooting stemmed from a longtime feud between the Sion Farm
and Castle Coakley neighborhoods. “He was an innocent bystander in this whole thing.. . From
what we can tell, he was in the wrong place at the wrong time,” said Lieutenant Naomi Joseph of
the Virgin Islands Police Department.

Cousins Lewayne Fraser of St. Thomas and Victor Smith of Tortola were riding in a car that
came under gunfire in the early morning hours of October 31, 2009. Both men were found shot
to death inside the vehicle, which crashed on Back Street on St. Thomas. “Two gentlemen that
have no known criminal background, one of them being in the National Guard, another one
visiting, and all of a sudden out of the blue, they’re killed on Back Street.. . We still can’t get
why,” said Sergeant Dwight Griffith of the Virgin Islands Police Department.

Anyone with information about these cases is encouraged to call Crime Stoppers USVI at 1-800-
