(Cape Eleuthera, Eleuthera) A 22-year-old young man from Waterford, Mr. Noel Pratt Jr., also known as 'Titum', was stabbed and killed on December 11th, 2009 by a male co-worker. 

Both men are said to have been employed at the Cape Eleuthera Resort in South Eleuthera.

The incident reportedly occurred shortly after the men arrived at work, between 8am and 8:30am. During that time, the men, who worked in the maintenance department were heading to their regular morning meeting according to a saddened co-worker at the site.

An employee of Cape Eleuthera Resort, who claimed to have witnessed some of the incident, said she observed the victim running when the assailant " 'juk' him in the neck". "And now he's dead," she added with tears in her eyes.

Police cordoned off a relatively large area of the parking lot immediately in front of the 'Utilities' building at the resort under the direct instruction of Supt. Cunningham who was on the scene with other officers.

An obviously distraught Green Castle resident, who is also employed at the resort, described the moments of the incident as "horrific". She described the victim as, "lying in a pool of blood" before being taking to the Rock Sound Clinic. 

Police confirmed that they had a Mr. Simon Mackey (32), also of Waterford, in custody at the Rock Sound Police Station in relation to this crime.

Pratt was reported to have succumbed to his injuries, shortly before 9:30am at the Rock Sound Clinic.
