    She’s found. So maybe the RCIPS criticism was unfounded. Perhaps the alarm wasn’t raised early as it’s typical behavior for her to go away for days?

    In any case, I’m glad there’s no issues.

    How many more headline incidents before Bananas Night Club gets its liquor license pulled? Is there a murder/missing persons quota that will signal this re-evaluation? What’s their official comment?

    Its easy to blame the RCIP’s for everything wrong on this island. Personally, the people that live on this island need to share the blame. There are a lot of people that have the inside track on the crime that happens here. They refuse to talk as no one wants to be called a “RAT” when everyone here is related. Hence so many issues within the RCIP’s. No one wants to pull over our arrest a cousin etc. I have talked to a few expat police that did not stay. They all have the same complaint. You cannot go against the local and Jamaican police officers. The minute you do you are on your own. It’s easier to just go with the flow until you can get your old job back.

    Remember the woman that went missing at the dump? She was never found. Our police are hopeless.

      What about Kerran Baker, the nurse, also missing without trace. CNS or the compass did a ‘cold case’ article on it a year or two ago.

      • Anonymous says:

        The police are fairly certain who murdered Ms Baker but had insufficient proof to ensure a conviction. He was a Caymanian (born and bred) and was later himself killed in Honduras. A second person, suspected of involvement, is still around. Again, insufficient evidence.

    Reported missing for 11 days, 8 days ago, and only now escalating to public attention. Awful.

    They have let in 15000 people since the borders opened back up.

    We already know the permit system is a free for all so I dread to think how many wronguns are roaming around on the run from their homelands.

    We’ve already seen convicted murderers etc just chilling in Cayman on work permits with clean background checks. It’s time to put a halt to Jamaican and Honduran permits until we can get a grip on it. They are the highest risk countries.

    Read the article again. It was only reported to police last week on Nov 9th.

    The police appeal for help after 2 weeks? Remind me to not get abducted or worse.

      You might want to check the timeline and ask why her friends and coworkers took over a week to report her missing.

      • Anonymous says:

        Sure, but how does that excuse the inaction by the POLICE for 8 days? She has been missing for 19 days now, 8 of those on RCIPS watch.
