BALSAM GHUT, Tortola, VI- One of the victims in the stabbing incident at Her Majesty’s Prison (HMP) last evening, May 30, 2021, has died.

Virgin Islands News Online can confirm the deceased is Jamaica national with Belonger status, Nickail Chambers.

Police have confirmed the stabbing incident resulted in a fatality.

“Police can confirm that one man is dead following an incident at HM Prison. Details surrounding the incident are unclear at this point, therefore no other information is available at this time.”

Chambers, who allegedly succumbed last night, was on July 12, 2019, sentenced in the High Court to spend 10 years in prison for possession of a firearm and attempted murder.

Meanwhile, our newsroom was informed by HMP sources that the other stabbing victim, Deshawn Stoutt is hospitalised at Dr D. Orlando Smith Hospital.

      The problem was there before guy Hill. Who there now need to fix it. Quick to put guy Hill name up front when a problem exist from years ago. Hill not even on the dam job. What is the current leadership at the prison doing. There are persons hired to prevent these incidents. What are they doing?

    Send those people who are violent and have had multiple repeat charges for serious crimes, to the United Kingdom or some other Caribbean country. Just like the police force has it own corrupt set of ppl, the prison has its own. Flush them out (officers) and send them out(prisoners).

    The prison system is a joke like everything else. Going to Her Majesties Palace is not a deterrent, got more privileges up there vs being on the outside. From the time that W$I pic come out I would have turned up there inside out. Man up there wearing thousand and thousands of dollars worth of jewelry, designer clothes, $100 + slippers & $1,500 shoes. I wonder if you can get room service? Tired of the struggles out here.

    To the stupid, immature, uneducated prison officer called Corrupt ******. Firstly, you sound jealous. Don't hate on your fellow officers, idiot. Grow up and do your work. It isn't any of them bringing in the drugs, weapons, money, or any other contraband. It isn't them who have sold out to inmates and now have to open gates for them and do their bidding. It isn't them who let inmates into other wings and cells. You corrupt, jealous, insignificant piece of crap. Grow the hell up. Sick and tired of yall and your whining. The Superintendents aren't the ones selling out to inmates for a dollar either. At least they all had dignity. Do your work and stop liking man.

    what do you mean with belonger status? if i am not mistaken, this man did school here and everything. he was here from an early age. he got 11 yrs for loaded gun and attempted murder but others who are from here who was found with loaded gun on bail and still walking the streets. others who strengthened to kill police are not in prison. People found with cocaine are out on the streets on bail. How can you fix the crime problem when the law only goes to people who not from here? The law needs to be the same across the land, from here or not from here, the law needs to be uphold them you should at least see a decline.

    BVI doesn’t have a prison, it’s a hotels. Prisoners have too much freedom, therefore no remorse for actions that put them there. Someone asked how they got weapons, same way how they have cell phones, gold chains and weed. Those criminals living their best life with 3 square meals and snacks (outside food). We need a prison reform.

    They been trying kill each other up there. This time someone succeeded. It all could have been prevented. Some ppl, no matter what prison reform you place them into, will never change. Those are the kinds of people that do not need to live amongst us, period.

    B.V.I is becoming the joke and trash can of the Caribbean. Everything is circulated on social media, corrupted elected officials that continue to line their pockets while hard working locals and other national work to make the island better.
    Tell me how can person be in prison and pictures from within said prison shows about 10 males full dressed (name brand clothes snd shoes, thousands of dollars jewelry )as though they aren't under arrest ) How is that possible, what are my tax dollars paying the guards to do. Is there no structure in the place. This government is a joke!
