MANCHESTER, United Kingdom- Word reaching our newsroom is that a student from the Virgin Islands (VI) who was on a government scholarship studying at Manchester Metropolitan University was found dead at the institution's halls of residence by police early this morning, January 5, 2018.

His parents are from West End, Tortola where he also resided prior to going abroad to study.

The cause of death is unknown at this time; however, both campus police and the local metropolitan police are investigating.

According to the Manchester Evening News, Police were called to Oxford Court, on Stretford Road, in Hulme, this morning by ambulance service.

    I think it will be good for the BVI to have a similar program like SKB do on Freedom Radio as every 6:30 am a group of mothers prayer for the nations children and the nation on a whole. Yes we need not only to prayer for ourselves but also for others. Prayer does wonders so let us continue to lift up each other in prayer.

    Dear Heavenly Father, I pray this family can grieve with acceptance in their heart through this time of losing a son. May I ask though, was it suicide?

      Please let us lift up the Isaacs at this very difficult time and pray for strength. Fishing for info at this time is not a good idea. Everyone understands curiosity, but we have to ask God to help us to grow in grace and to worship him in spirit and truth in 2018 and beyond.
