  1. To those of you posting comments who claim to know these people - have some respect. How dare you think it’s ok to air about their marriage if you did know them you’d know she was private and her husband was her world. None of you were there so none of you can comment on what happened nor what mental state either of them were in. And you to imbociles who keep Ranting about if he was a local black man or if he was poor HE WAS BLACK HE WAS DOMINICAN AND THEY WERE POOR again have some decorum and respect and think outside of the box of her REAL family and REAL friends reading this madness! A woman has died we’ve lost 2 people we love and your worried about reputation of St Lucia? KISS MY Butt! This incident happened 2 days ago and already people who claim to be her friend are bad mouthing a situation they know nothing about. So if you wanna Leave comments and pay your respects please go ahead but keep your disrespectful rubbish to yourself. Heaven forbid you never have to read comments like this about someone you love. And for the record we’ve known her over 40 years

    • My dear,
      My best advice to you is to IGNORE those bad minds out there. My grandmother always used to say that the two times in ones life you hear the most LIES is when one gets married and when one dies. People always seems to think that they know your business more than you. They always know what goes on in a marriage more than the coupme. You knew who your friend was and you lived and cared for each other and that's all that matters. Give your self time to grieve. You're in shock, and you still can't believe or understand what has happened. One day you will be able to remember her with a smile on your face. Remember all the happy times and MEMORIES you guys shared. FORGET these IGNORANT, USELESS HYPOCRITES. All they want is their fifteen minutes of fame and They don't care how they achieve it.
      My Sincere Condolences to you. God Bless and take Care.

      • Hello Concerned lady. Have you got any more information on this murder? I live in Essex and I am wondering whether the couple is friends of mine I met in St Lucia a few years ago.

        Can you fill me in with a bit more, please? I would appreciate this very much. I am worried and have been calling around but no one seems to know. No one is willing to assist me. I am reading this blog to find out more.

        Thank you - Do leave a message here for me, please.
