A Policeman in Antigua is currently being held in custody, along with a woman, as law enforcement officials investigate the murder of gas station attendant, Dorothy Prince.
It is being reported that the breakthrough in the investigations came about after police discovered a green Nissan Almera, believed to have been used as the getaway car. The policeman being detained is so far the only suspect in the case. The woman who is also in custody worked at the gas station and is assisting the lawmen with their investigations.
Thirty nine year old Dorothy Prince, from Grand Fond, Dominica lived and worked in Antigua and was on duty at Dee’s 24 Hour Service Station located at the junction of Old Parham Road and Sir George Walter Highway, on the night of the fateful shooting that eventually claimed her life. She died the following day in hospital from gunshot wounds suffered in the stomach and hand, after robbers released bullets having already robbed Prince and her fellow attendants on duty of EC$5,200. The unfortunate shooting incident took place at around 9:15 pm on Friday, 17th February.
According to Antigua's Observer News, an eyewitness reported that the thugs did not immediately leave the scene but rather they held the attendants at gunpoint after they stole their money bags. The eyewitness stated that Prince was shot after she showed signs of being frightened.
