Sword’s alleged killer caught in Antigua

Once caught, police boasted to suspect, “You can run but you can’t hide”.

It was on Sunday 2nd June, 2013, while walking home from a church service, that New Town resident, Sheldon “Sword” Cannonier was shot to death in the street, in the presence of a female companion, at Lime Kiln, Basseterre.

Police say that following diligent investigations and advanced systematic searches throughout the Eastern Caribbean, they managed to locate one Kimo Flemming of Trafalgar Village St. Kitts, who was found in Antigua, and returned to the Federation by the Violent Crimes Unit (VCU) of the Royal St. Christopher and Nevis Police Force.

They say, Flemming, who illegally entered Antigua was taken before Antigua’s Magistrate Court upon his capture where he was convicted and deemed a prohibited immigrant and an order of deportation was put in effect. 

Police say Flemming who was “a wanted fugitive in the cowardly and senseless murder of Sheldon Sword Cannonier” is allegedly the son of slain community leader, Noel “Zambo” Heath. He fled the Federation after his picture was featured as a person of interest in “Sword’s” murder.

On Sunday 16th February 2014, Fleming was formally arrested and charged for the murder.
