Minister of Tourism makes statement on recent double murders of Mr. & Mrs. King

On behalf of the Government of Sint Maarten, my cabinet and my family, I would like to extend my condolences to the family and friends of Michael and Thelma King. They were loyal visitors to our destination and as a Government and community we are saddened by this horrifying tragedy that took place on our island.

That being said, I would also like to applaud the Police Force for their excellent work in capturing a suspect in this case in record time. Government is and will continue to use every resource necessary to investigate and solve this case.

Minister of Tourism, Economic Affairs, Traffic, & Telecommunication

Hon. Romeo Pantophlet.
