article imageGrenada man arrested after delivering severed heads to police

By Kim I. Hartman     May 6, 2010 in World
Grenada police say a man calmly walked into the police station and declared, “I have two heads for all you” as he handed them a couple buckets carrying the severed heads of a pair of local islanders who were later found decapitated and mutilated.
Authorities on Wednesday charged a Grenada man with two counts of first-degree murder after he walked into a precinct station with the buckets that held the grotesque remains of his victims.
Police allege Steve Gory, 32, presented the bloody decapitated heads of two local men to officers at the Grenville police station on Monday night. He was detained immediately by the horrified police according to a report from the Associated Press.
Police found the hacked-up, headless bodies in a field in St. Andrew parish. Police allege Gory acted alone in beheading the owner of a local tavern and a local farmhand.

The Cay Compass is reporting that the heads belonged to Clive Greenidge, a former police officer and owner of a nightclub, and Chris Beggs, one of Greenidge's employees, Grenada Broadcasting Network reported.
The be-headings have shocked residents in what police say are two of the most gruesome killings in Grenada in years.
Greenidge and Beggs, both in their 30s, were residents of Balthazaar. The killings were discovered Tuesday. It was not immediately known if the men's bodies had been found.
In addition to the nightclub, Greenidge also ran a flourishing farm business, selling produce at the St. George's market

Police spokesman Troy Garvey said investigators have released only a few details about the grisly slayings in St. Andrew parish and that Gory will appear court on Thursday according to an MSNBC report from Grenada.
Prime Minister Tillman Thomas, who is also national security minister, called the be-headings an "indescribable act" that underscores the need for a "structured approach to anger management."
"This is a tragedy not just for the people of St. Andrew but for all of Grenada," Thomas said Tuesday.

The gruesome murders have shocked islanders in the Caribbean country of 91,000 who are accustomed to crime reports of only robbery and theft. The authorities said the incident occurred in the parish of St Andrews and brings to five, the number of people murdered here so far this year said the British Virgin Island news.
The effect these five murders will have on tourism on the island of Grenada is not yet known.
