Imagine yourself a parent. You wake up earlier than usual last Saturday morning to calls and e-mails from friends at home and abroad congratulating you on how handsome are your sons, one ten the other twelve, in their picture with Saint Lucia’s prime minister that is all over the Internet. You are taken way off guard. You thank the well-wishers anyway, and excitedly inform them that you and your family had attended the historic Pitons Cup races in Vieux Fort the day before, how much your boys had enjoyed meeting Mr. Chastanet in the flesh and having their picture taken with him.

On the morning of October 30, 2018 Saint Lucians at home and abroad were shaken to their core by the announcement, first on radio, then via a police press conference, then seemingly everywhere including the island’s countless watering holes, that Kimberly de Leon, a mother of two young children, had been shot dead as she prepared for bed at her Morne residence.
