Tragedy

Daily Observer (Jamaica) - - CLOVIS TOON -

saved their money to re­set­tle in homes in which they would be com­fort­able. Far too many of them found that the re­turn was no fairy tale. They have been at­tacked and robbed of their be­long­ings and their lives. They have been preyed upon by the wicked and the heart­less who have no love for their fel­low Ja­maicans.

Ques­tion of the day: Would you want to be in the place of the come-home Ja­maicans, many of whom live in fear, look­ing over their shoul­ders at ev­ery shadow after dark?

This week the news re­ported, al­most back-to-back, about the cases of two women who were found dead in shal­low graves. Forty-four-year-old Karen Cleary-brown had come home from Eng­land and set­tled in the parish of St Mary. She had come home after some 20 years liv­ing abroad and had been build­ing her dream home. The dream ended when early this week she was found dead. An­other re­port was of an Amer­i­can se­nior cit­i­zen, Nancy Hardy, who had set­tled in Ne­gril, at the other end of the is­land. Un­hap­pily, she too was found dead, days after be­ing re­ported miss­ing.
