    So if the story is still being worked on and the police seemingly have not completed their investigation and have not released a statement, why the photo of a crime scene tape? Just asking...

      Its just a picture "just asking"... duuuuuuhhhhhhhh!!!! ... its not a pic of the real crime scene. sometimes news papers, tv news use random pics to give you an idea of what the story is about. ......common sense

        just asking.. for security reasons, its better for the police to secure that area to conduct their investigation and hopefully come up with a death due to natural causes, than for them not to secure the scene and it turns out that there was foul play or a crime was committed, then evidence would be contaminated.

    too many of our people live alone and need to get their friends and family to check on them.

    I know this is an Old Post but I know Zeus from st. Croix in his band days of making good music. I also know his ex shamah who is my good friend ..And three of his children who are now parents of their own children. They never got to know him very well but they look just like him and they play basketball just like him!
    Addiction and poverty killed a very talented man. Rest in peace Zeus
