Autopsy Reveals Foul Play

A stab wound to the heart, not a car accident, is what caused the Dec. 4 death of St. Thomas resident Malvin Van Beverhoudt, according to a recent autopsy.

V.I. Police Department traffic detectives were notified that Van Veverhoudt was hit by a black Toyota Camry on the evening of Dec. 4, near the area of the former J. Antonio Jarvis School. The driver of the vehicle got out of his car and walked to the nearby Zone A command station to report the incident.

According to detectives, an autopsy performed on Van Beverhoudt revealed that he had been stabbed in the heart, and that he collapsed and died before getting hit by the car. Witnesses in the area at the time of Van Beverhoudt’s death said they saw the victim arguing with another unknown male, who punched him and began running. Van Beverhoudt was said to have run after the person, but ended up collapsing on Hospital Gade soon after.

The case has been turned over to the Criminal Investigation Bureau for further investigation. Anyone with additional information is asked to call detectives at 715-5522, 715-5551, or Crime Stoppers USVI at 1-800-222-TIPS.
