A Dominican born elderly woman living in Antigua has been found dead in her bed.
The Antigua Observer has identified her as Islin “Sister” James and it is reported she lay dead undiscovered for two days.
The body was discovered by neighbours who went to investigate after they had not seen the elderly woman for some time.
“People had not seen her for about three days but at first it didn’t surprise anyone that the house was locked down because she usually lock up inside. But then there was a funny smell and people went to check and found her dead in her bed,” the Antigua Observer reported a witness as saying.
The Antigua police are investigating the matter.
