Police have confirmed that 52-year old Victor Knight is the country’s latest homicide victim.

Knight’s body was discovered around 9 this morning with stab wounds in his home at Seclusion Road, Black Rock, St Michael. His throat was also slashed.

Residents told Barbados TODAY they heard someone screaming out “murder, murder” just before midnight, but they thought it was a movie that was showing.

      Even if someone did shout “murder” in jest, it would be accompanied by loud laughter. In addition, the pitch of the word “murder” differs when being said in jest or in seriousness. One should know the difference.

    This is so sad. During these situations people are often so scared they would just scream. It is not unusual for some people to not understand the shout of, “murder” as a cry for help. I grew up hearing people saying that when they hear a good joke. Unless you can shout out, “HELP ME” most people don’t know you need help.

    A cop once told me if I’m ever attacked don’t yell “murder” or “rape”, yell “fire”. He said people are more likely to respond if they too have something to lose.

    I am with a heavy heart, not only that I knew Victor, I actually work with him when I reside there. This is one cowardly act, senseless lost of a father’s life.

    What is going on in Barbados, My condolences goes out to Victor’s family and may he R.I.P. I lost a good friend.
