    Hello and good evening my people. First I would like to offer my condolence to the family for their lost. Now the police didn’t say her death is suspicious or she was the victim of a crime therefore no one can say that she is a victim. The body was examine by a medical practitioner which I suspect is a nurse from the area. The medical examiner will perform an autopsy which should reveal the cause of death and determine if she was a crime victim. At this stage the main question I have is that . Does anyone reside with her. Again my condolence to her family and may she rest in peace.

    This is so sad.My deepest condolences to her children and grand children.
    If other deaths with similar circumstances are under investigation then shouldn’t the public be notified? People should be told where these things are occurring ,if this is a serial killer as someone suggested ,so we can all be on the alert.Especially those of us who have children who come home to an empty house on a normal school day when parents are still at work.

    Every body keep saying people will pay for what they do.atty thus time it’s homicide.if they see anything on her body like semen, or cuts n bruise, then it’s murder.they’re still investigating.stop assuming someone killed her

    the police report never indicated there was foul play,but someone is being condemned already.wait for the autopsy report.it’s as simple as that,instead of taking up space uselessly on this site.

    When people live alone anything can happen she might be getting dress and got a heart attack. People fall in their shower and die. I hope is natural cause. May she rest in peace.

    I am truly saddened by the news of sister Christmas’ death. Whatever the cause of death we have lost an ardent believer. “To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord.”

    What you mean God will judge him…no matter how evil we are if we ask God for forgiveness he will forgive and will welcome u to paradise……no matter how loving and kind u are hell is your potion if u do not accept Christ……so punishment on this earth is the only punishment a criminal will recieve if they give thrir life to Christ……..maybe God punishes us on this earth too…but I dometimes wonder….evil people don’t seem to suffer on this earth

    Did the police mention any thing about foul play? I see they are putting up the hotline number for info. Could it be purely medical like heart attack or did they see something suspicious?

    To the family, my condolences.

    Sorry to hear about this elderly lady’s death. On another note, DNO bodies are not pronounced dead, people are. A body is already dead.

    The police did not say whether fowl play was suspected, but was she coming from or going to her bathroom? Why would someone want to harm a Christian lady like her? May her soul RIP and if it was inflicted by someone, the Almighty will take care of you.

    I’ve investigated 8 death cases and 4 of the individuals were found naked 2 woman 2 man and the same circumstances was noticed by my coworkers. Strange….

      So it is possible that there is a serial killer on the island. Check the geographic location of the killing, the age of the victims, the vulnerability of the victims, the manner in which the individuals were killed. You have already started some similarities so if that is the case, it is likely that you guys are dealing with a serial who needs to be caught.
