    Extremely sad for especially her family and the 88 year-old man’s family. None deserved to die, at all.
    Some boyfriend! This is not one who genuinely was in love and who loved. The man probably had jealous and murderous tendencies. There is no excuse for his atrocious actions, taking two lives. He can prepare himself for some years of imprisonment, if not for life.
    Deepest sympathy to her family and all those who knew her, in addition to the 88-year old man’s family.
    May their souls rest in peace. Amen!

    The 24 yr old young man’ confession of murdering Dominican college graduate and mother of two, is jealousy oriented. He lost all semblance of sanity on seeing her in conversation with her former boyfriend. Lessons need to be learnt from this life ending scenario,, with both sides paying a tremendous price. Affection and emotion carry a hell of a heavy load.

    This is so sad. A young, vibrant, and intelligent person has senselessly lost her life. Dominicans should feel cheated that a young person, with so much potential to do good, has been taken away. Just would like to express sincerest condolences to her family and friends.

    Reading the story in the Trinidad Express, it it right home, i had an intuition that it was an acquaintance. Caribbean urban societies is changing for the worst in most cases, and we need to teach our young beautiful women and men to learn to pick their friends very carefully. No one, absolutely no one should be taken for granted.
