Nassau, Bahamas: The Bahamas must be cursed with all these deaths occurring with guests coming to this country. With such a small island nation, how is it almost every week a tourist is found dead, shot or killed in a traffic accident? Has the Bahamas become so hardened to murder among its own, that we can care less about what is happening to visitors?
According to a ‘deep throat’ within the Central Detective Unit of the Royal Bahamas Police Force, two Jamaican nationals have also joined the missing list in the country, and family members of both men fear they are dead.
Both men went missing in The Bahamas in early December 2008, according to the officer. It is alleged that the men were robbed at gunpoint, before being kidnapped by their robbers. Bahamas Press has learned that family members of both men are distraught by the stalled actions of police to launch an investigating into this crime.
“Their is a women at the centre of this investigation, where we believe she enticed the men to come to an area in Nassau where they are believed to have been robbed, and taken by the robbers,” our ‘deep throat’ said.
Family members reportedly told police that strangers were answering the men cell phones during the same time of the alleged robbery and kidnapping. Police are expected to soon release the identity of the missing men.
This adds to the latest suspicious death/discovery of an American tourist Timothy Massa, a 30 year-old physical education teacher at the Waterbury Arts Magnet School in Waterbury Connecticut. Massa’s body was found floating in the marina on Paradise Island shortly after 5pm on Monday. No word has yet come on the findings of surveillance video in the area.
Massa was on vacation with his brother, Jeffrey and Jeffrey’s friends, at the Atlantis hotel and resort. After a night of partying, Massa said he was going to bed in his room around 1 a.m., according to the local newspaper in Waterbury. However Massa was nowhere to be found when his brother Jeffrey returned to the room hours later. Most of his belongings were left near the bed.
A toxicology report is still pending.
Just last month another tourist became the final traffic fatality of 2008 on Grand Bahamas. And in early 2008 an American officer was shot as he was robbed and shot by gunmen just outside the home of the former prime minister. Two men were charged for the incident, however Bahamas Press believes, with the SLACK JUDICIAL SYSTEM IN THE COUNTRY, the men might be on bail awaiting trial.
We in the Bahamas must now become concerned with all this missing, murder and death on our streets with our guests, as we see the headlines around the world tell the real story about what is occuring in the country. One must wonder upon hearing these frequent incidents, is it truly better in The Bahamas?
