st.-kitts-police-car-740BASSETERRE, St. Kitts, Tuesday February 17, 2015, CMC – Police Monday confirmed they were investigating the death of a man in Conaree, east of the here, but said it was too early to link the murder to the general election in St. Kitts-Nevis.

The police gave the name of the dead man as Levingstone Moore, but would not give any further details including his age or whether his death had been linked to the polls.

“The investigations are underway and we cant give any details at this time,” said police public relations officer, Inspector Linden David.

Voters in this twin island Federation are casting ballots to elect a new government with Prime Minister Dr. Denzil Douglas, 62, seeking to become the first head of government in the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) to win five consecutive elections.

He leads his St. Kitts-Nevis Labour Party (SKNLP) into a tough battle against a combined opposition group, Team Unity that is equally confident of denying him the opportunity of re-writing the history books of the country.

Both parties have named 11 candidates for control of the 15-member National Assembly.
