2 TEEN-AGERS SHOT AND KILLED OVER THE WEEKEND

Nov. 11, 2002 – The bullet-riddled bodies of two teen-agers were found Saturday morning after police received a report of a body in the road in the Castle Burke area.
The body of Stephanie Parris, 17, of Castle Burke was found on the ground near a heavily tinted black Nissan Altima. Inside the car police found the body of Dale Roberson, 19, of Morningstar.
Police have offered no motive for the killings, but an unidentified source told The Avis they may have arisen out of a love triangle.
The weekend killings brought the territory's homicides to 41 for the year, 22 of them on St. Croix.
Comparable homicide figures as of Nov. 9 for the last three years are:
2001 – 10 on St. Croix, 21 in the territory.
2000 – 7 on St. Croix, 16 in the territory.
1999 – 8 on St. Croix, 22 in the territory.
Police have asked anyone with information concerning the shootings to call 778-2211 or 911.
