Black Stalin’s gravesite ‘disturbed’; crown damaged

Calypso icon Dr Leroy “Black Stalin” Calliste, was given a heroes send off on January 5th.

Days later, on January 13th, his grave was found vandalised.
It is suspected that the act may have been committed by a street dweller.

A report by Guardian Media stated that the dirt on the grave appeared to be disturbed, while the flowers were thrown and scattered.
A crown, which had been on top of his coffin during the service before it was placed atop the grave was also damaged. However, the grave did not appear to have been dug up.

The unfortunate scene was observed by Shane Noel, a resident of San Fernando, who was passing through the cemetery.

San Fernando Mayor Junia Regrello was angered by the incident and he intends to visit the grave today to assess the situation.

Regrello told the media house that they will be taking steps to protect not only Calliste’s grave but other burial sites at the cemetery. “We will do what we have to ensure that gravesites there are protected,” he assured.
