Male Found Hanging in Room, Appears to be a Suicide

St. Croix, USVI - On July 5, 2023 the 911 Emergency Call Center requested the Criminal Investigation Bureau to travel to St. George’s to investigate an apparent suicide by hanging.

Upon arrival contact was made with the paramedics who stated that when they arrived the deceased was still warm to touch, and they cut him down and hooked him up to the Automated External Defibrillator (AED) which showed no sign of life.

Contact was made with the deceased’s acquaintance, who stated that she received a phone call from the deceased’s best friend telling her that they need to check on him because he called and said this was his goodbye. The acquaintance stated that when they got to the house the deceased’s friend called him and he answered but would not open the door. At that point they broke a window and entered the home. While inside they discovered him hanging in his bedroom and immediately called 911.

The deceased was identified by his next of kin as 25-years-old Djante Carrington.
