ARGUMENT LED TO FATAL STABBING, POLICE SAY

Dec. 17, 2001 -Deputy Police Chief Theodore Carty said Monday that he had "some good leads" on a stabbing that left Clement Smith, 20, of St. Thomas, dead Saturday.
Carty said "hopefully, this week" he will know the identity of the assailant who stabbed Smith, who was found dead on lower Kronprindsens Gade early Saturday morning.
Smith and another man had an argument, after which the other man stabbed Smith and fled the scene, Carty said.
Smith's death was the territory's 26th homicide of the year and the 14th on St. Thomas.
In 2000, there were 18 homicides in the territory, 11 of them on St. Thomas.
