St. Maarten– Police were still busy identifying the country’s 17th murder victim for 2011 on Monday night. The man was shot dead close to 3:00 p.m. on Boxing Day (December 26) close to Ace on Well Road in Cole Bay.

Both the Public Prosecutor Hans Mos and Police Spokesman Inspector Ricardo Henson confirmed the shooting, but neither had the man’s name when contacted by this newspaper. Several sources have said the man’s name is Raoul.

Police were first called to the Cole Bay for the shooting at 2:50 p.m. Once there they closed off the area and called the police doctor, who declared the man dead. He’d been shot once.

Officers from the Forensics Unit have collected the available evidence and detectives have questioned witnesses. None of the information they had was enough for police to make a concrete determination of what happened.
