St. Maarten – The Judge of Instruction rules yesterday that the arrest of a suspect in the murder of Sheldon Thomas was unlawful, Chief Prosecutor Mr. Hans Mos told this newspaper yesterday. The suspect, about whom the prosecutor did not release any details, was arrested on Thursday. The Judge ruled that there was insufficient evidence to link the suspect to the murder.
Sheldon Thomas was murdered two weeks ago, on Friday august 19. His body was found on the G. Alexis Arnell road, aka the Cakehouse Road, less than 24 hours after unknown gunmen murdered Kevin Gumbs and Eric Lake on the A. Th. Illidge Road.
Though media reports suggest that Thomas was shot to death, the prosecutor’s office has not released details about the murder.
Thomas was on probation for a 2010 conviction. His murder was the tenth killing for the year in Dutch St. Maarten.
