What we learnt from the Nellie Brown Murder? We must be born AGAIN BAHAMAS!

Heart Foundation Member, Nellie Brown, becomes murder victim #227 in the most gruesome slaughter since the murder of fashion designer Harl Taylor.

Nassau, Bahamas — As most writers would rather adapt the quotes from Mark Twain or some Shakespearean literature, today we have drawn closer to the Book of Matthew as we assess the tragic events of the week past, in particular, the slaughter of a woman [estranged from her husband] murdered by her so call “CHRISTIAN” boyfriend.

The setting of horror this week gathered in South Beach at the centre of that beautiful street named Bougainvillea Blvd. There detectives discovered the diced human remains of a woman 40-year-old named Nellie Brown [Cox].

We have more to share about this tragedy, which displays best a mirror of our lust for money and an unquenchable search for hot moments of rendezvous; even in the risk of facing death square in the face.

Brown left her husband for this same contractor boyfriend, who is now in police custody for her murder. His name is Prince Hepburn, a striving businessman who left his wife in Pinewood Gardens and meet up with the Queen of Andros and Heart Foundation patron, Nellie.

Contractor Prince Hepburn seen here is accused of the murder of his common law wife, Nellie Brown Thursday morning.

But what could it be? Both left their marital contract to live together, and throughout the society in full public view there they paraded. Some tell us Hepburn built his longtime sweetheart her own bungalow and himself an apartment for moments of quiet pleasure. What a fairytale snapshot that was.

They say she loved him and he madly fell in love with her, but was it true, was it real, was it genuine? And then the unthinkable occurred. Someone came back home, ran into a rage a struggle ensued and the next morning we know, Nellie was a dead woman. Her body so badly mutilated and diced ambulance drivers had to be given leave with counseling as they broke down distraught upon entering the crime scene.  What a sight to see. The mother of two young daughters chopped into pieces; an arm severed in a near beheading exercise.

What crime of passion was this? Hepburn was a man who could quote scriptures. The couple would be sitting this Sunday morning live on channel TV-13 at the Zion Baptist Church on East and Shirley Streets had Thursday’s tragedy not occur.

All we can say is this; something went terribly gone wrong! And it is not just happening in the lives of that couple, but in the homes all over the Bahamas. Night after night women and some men are being abused late into the night. Beaten like a boxer in the ring with Mike Tyson. Married or unmarried some abusers make their violent moad swings a habit and call it love. Some are beaten then locked away leaving the abused haunted, traumatized and scared forever.

Just a few weeks ago a Junior Minister in the Cabinet of the Bahamas took the pleasure of beating his Goldie Locks girlfriend BLACK AND BLUE and days later gathered the nerves to stand in a classroom and pretend to be a compassionate lover and honourable man? WHAT A PRETENDER! Certainly, we all have lost our way. BP will have more to say on this.

Some victim in an abusive relationship is reading this article and is examining the threat now on life, to you we say GET OUT! And to the rest of us who have lost our way, all we say is this; WE MUST BE BORN AGAIN!

    So did any one go to the funeral?

  2. media, to be honest when I first googled this story and came upon this website, I honestly thought it was credible. However, upon reading the comments and posts, it is clear to me that this website ain no better than the punch. this is absolutely ridiculous and so disappointing that we was bahamians have nothing better to do than sit up and gossip. clearly I now know where NOT to come when I want the REAL STORY. media, do better

    • media says:

      So what are you suggesting here?

      A) The story was untrue?

      B) We have surpassed the Punch?

      C) The Tribune is ‘WASSA’ than US?

      D) The FNM has failed when it comes to Crime?

    They buried Nelly yet? Well I hope whenever she’s laid to rest, people will allow her past to rest along with her.

    some men are just pigs because they are so use to being pigs they dont know how to treat a real woman when they find one so no matter how much you take them out of dirty stink water they will always go back becuz they are just nasty pigs. and women if u used to be with a man and they left you to be married to another move on it means its over stop trying to trap him if u was worth it he would have stayed

  5. jenni says:

    I wonder if Cassandra Johnson from eleuthera tampay bay who use to work for pro office learn anything from this slept with a married man 20 years older than her and had a baby thinking he had money but along was living of the wife, life is a circle what goes around comes around yall young girls need to find yall own man and these man dont want they just want a piece of the pie no self respect shame on you young girls and married old man

  6. bpm says:

    Hey! Tabitha Nairn. You think they are going to give Prince “Hatchet” bail. Boy! I don’t think he needs bail, “cause he goin” after George Sawyer. But whomever got that LAWYER for him, well, George is gonna POOP.

    Hey! Murrio Ducille, is an excellent lawyer A.

    This is an example of women trying to taking advantage of men, look at the end results either your are going to get the hell beat out of you or you gonna get the hell chop up. You women out there PLEASEEEEEEEEEEE if you don’t like the man PLEASEEEEEEEEEEEE do not take his money or try to play games with him, a mind is a serous think, it is like a rubber band you don’t know when is going break. It is going to stretch one or two times and then what.

    My heart goes out to the respective families George, Nellie and Prince.

    Yes! Nellie is dead, but it might not had happened that way. If she had not disrespect Prince, by taking another man into his castle, in his bed. If you wanna cheat, find a reason to get mad with the man, then break up with the man. Then she could have done what she wanted to do. Nellie and Prince whole life was a lie, nobody was the blame both cheated, THE BIBLE SAY HOW CAN A MAN PUT FIRE TO HIS BOSSOM AND NOT BE BURNT. Nellie really, really should have file those teeth right down before giving Prince the cookie. End of story.

    May she rest in one piece.

    MEDIA??????????????????????????

    iS THIS A RECORD FOR THE MOST RESPONSE???????

    cAN YOU TELL ME WHICH POST HAS THE RECORD FOR THE MOST REPLIES….OR YOU DONT HAVE THAT KINDDA INFO???????????????????????

  8. for Brown says:

    Yes the wages of sin is death.. her sin caused her death and his sin will cause his..

    BP asked what have we learned… from reading this thread.. NOTHING.. well will still be complicit to people in our lives who we know are doing wrong..

    lazy unscrupulous women will continue to lay on their back and prostitute themselves, instead of standing on their two feet and working to take care of themselves

    men will continue to be whores and pimp these prostitutes and degrade them and treat them like their property.

    AND THE CHURCH WILL CONTINUE TO REMAIN EERILY SILENT, while their PROF-ITS sleep with men, sweethearts and the little girls in the church and no one will have the balls to stand up and speak out against it. When someone does they will be labelled judgemental; the Bible says judge according to righteousness.. but then again most “chhurrrch” ( because they are not christians) people don’t read the Bible for themselves, they only listen to what Pastor say…

    Meanwhile the country continues in its moral decline.

  9. The Known says:

    @ Everyone: this is a sad case indeed but the whole situation seem to be a classic case of crazy man coming home and meeting licentious woman engaing in play with ready to go sweetheart…unfortunately over the years this has become “the bahamian way” before any act of crime of passion happens there is an act of passion that leads to senseless murders. If anyone is concern lets stop sweetheart please…She was a beautiful woman I hope that other bahamian women out there take heed to this message stop having these sweetheart affairs… and with regret I add “with men who will run and leave you to get murdered”.

  10. Wendell says:

    This entire story is truly sad indeed. My heart is with the families of both individuals and with the individuals involved.

  11. Reader says:

    Prayers to all, but my bible tells me the wages of sin is death, my bible also tells me that Satan is out to seek, kill and destroy, lets be all mindful what god requires of us and lets stay in his presence so he can be the light of our foot path.

    People, pray pray pray pray pray evil spirit speak also, that’s why my God said my Sheep knows my voice, not every voice is the voice of the lord, don’t live against the will of GOD…..pray pray pray pray seek and run after GOD

    • Pinder says:

      You are right. the Bahamas, and indeed, the world needs to pray. This was a senseless killing. They both left marital relationships to be together. Yet, he thought that faithfulness was a virtue they both had. He was obviously wrong. Now, a beautiful young woman is dead and a man is going to prison for a long time; maybe even hanged. Do you see how the devil sifts us like wheat?

      Advice: If you are with someone, and they cheat…..WALK AWAY. You will save their life, and yours.

  12. susan gordon says:

    pine wood oh pine how many more.

  13. For the friends of Nellie:
    Since all of you are so adamantly defending her on this site, where were all of you when she (a married woman) was sleeping with a married man, and allegedly another man? I can hope that were as passionately telling her to close her legs to married men and other men (since she was such a good christian) and stop being a jump off and/or prostitute ( a woman who sleeps with men for material gain)

    to the friends of Prince:
    I hope you were also counseling to keep his dick in his pants and stop sleeping with women other than his wife. Secondly, that God gave us dominion over things not people, so no woman belongs to him, he should have simply walked away. A trick will always be a trick. So the two of them needed to stop tricking.

    to the good members of Zion:
    I hope that you were also counseling your good church members to stop sinning and set an example for their respective children, but eerily the pastor is quiet on this matter.. I guess he and the church board have to much going on with focusing on what goes on in HIS bedroom. They have no time for the members.

    The hypocrisy in this country is sickening. Until we get serious and call right right and wrong wrong, the country will continue to spiral out of control.

    • you need too get real nobody is responsible for this crime other than prince he know what he was going to do as a free will free thinking human….. no one can control anothers actions… so your questions arent really important so find another way to be a asshole!!!

      • Get real,really needs to get real, and kindly refrain from JUSTIFYING the truth!!! The evidence is overwhelmingly shameful!Thank you “just some questions”. The hypocrisy in this country really is sickening!!!

      • Hey Get Real, Have you ever heard of “To every action there is a reaction” no?….What about” cause and effect?”.The law takes into consideration Mr Hepburns state of mind…..look it up I believe it’s called”In the fire”.I make no excuses for Mr Hepburn’s actions,as he will certainly pay the price for such insanity.But don’t you dare delude yourself into believing,that he was the only person responsible.Common sense dictates, that we exercise self control, as there will always be repercussions!Or are we simply too commonly senseless?

    • Interesting says:

      LET ME MAKE THIS CLEAR TO EVERYONE WHO THINKS THEY ARE GOD AND KNOWS PEOPLE’S HEARTS…

      AS JESUS SAID TO THE SELF-RIGHTEOUS, SCOFFING KNOW-IT-ALLS: LET HE WITHOUT SIN CAST THE FIRST STONE. YALL NEED TO STOP BLASTING EVERYBODY BEFORE YOU FIND YOURSELF IN A SITUATION YOU NEVER IN A MILLION YEARS WOULD THINK YOU’D FIND YOURSELF IN AND SHAME WILL EAT YOU ALIVE. STOP JUDGING!! – ESPECIALLY PEOPLE YOU DON’T EVEN KNOW OR ONLY THINK YOU KNOW!!!!! NOBODY IS PERFECT – NOT EVEN YOU

      • margo says:

        WE ALL KNOW THAT ONLY GOD WAS PERFECT. WE ALL KNOW WHAT WE ARE DOING. CHRISTIANS,PASTORS,DEACONS, CHURCH FOLK LEAVE WIVES AND HOMES FOR YOUNGER WOMEN AND THINK THAT THIS IS RIGHT WHILE OTHERS LOOK ON AND THINK THAT IT IS THE RIGHT THING TO DO IT IS NOT THESE MEN ALLOW THE LUST FOR A YOUNGER WOMAN TO DESTROY THEM. THAT IS ALL IT IS. LUST, EVIL. PRINCE AND OTHER OLDER MEN NEED TO CLEAVE TO THEIR WIFE AND LEAVE THESE GOLDIGGERS ALONE. THESE WOMEN DO NOT LOVE THEM THEY MAY THINK SO BUT THEY DONT THEY ONLY WHAT WHAT THEY HAVE AND LEAVE THE WIVES WITHOUT. I AS A WIFE CAN TESTIFY TO THIS, I AM LEGALLY SEPERATED FROM MY HUDBAND WHO WAS SEEING YOUNGER WOMEN, THESE WOMEN DO NOT CARE ABOUT THEM BUT WHAT THEY CA GIVE THEM WHILE THE WIFE IS LEFT WITHOUT, LIKE ME WHO IS SEPERATED AND LEFT STILL PAYING HAVE OF OUR HOUSE MORTAGE. IF PRINCE WOULD HAVE STAYED WITH HIS WIFE HE WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN IN THIS PREDICTEMENT TODAY. ALSO WE AS BAHAMIANS LOVE TO SWEEP EVIL UNDER THE CARPET. EVIL PREVAILS WHEN GOOD MEN REMAIN SILENT. I WOULD NOT HVE KNOWN THE WOMEN MY HUSBAND WAS SEEING HAD IT NOT BEEN FOR THE PEOPLE WHO KNEW AND TOLD ME ABOUT. THE TRUTH SHALL SET YOU FREE. WHEN WE ARE WRONG AND IS DOING WRONG SOMEONE SHOULD TELL US AND NOT BE AFRAID TO DO SO. WE NEED TO PUT RIGHT WHERE RIGHT IS AND STOP UPHOLDING EVIL IN THIS COUNTRY. STANDUP FOR RIGHTIOUSNESS!!!!!!!!

        • MAN says:

          Too many if you married women don’t love your husband and let these sweet young things in by being miserable nags. Too many men are paying their bills taking care of all their responsibilities and becuase you so call good house wives don’t even want to feed your husband much less – sleep with him. I know most married men in the Bahamas sleep in a different bedroom in the house. Men are easy! Feed us – Make Love to us – and Respect Us. Do these things and the sweet heearting will die out!

          • margo says:

            Mr.MAN, THE BIBLE SYAS THAT THE HUSBAND SHOULD LOVE HIS WIFE LIKE CHRIST LOVE THE CHURCH, IT IS THE HUDBANDS WHO ARE AT FAULT BECAUSE THEY DO NOT FOLLOW THE TEACHINGS OF CHRIST, THEY SHOULD LOVE US THE WIVES AND NOT THE WIFE LOVE THE HUSBAND, THE SWEETHEART WHOM THEY PAY THEIR BILLS AND TAKE GOOD CARE OF THEM DO NOT LOVE THEM THEY DID NOT WALK UP THE ISLE WITH THEM AND THEY DID NOT MAKE ANY VOWS WITH THEM SO THEY HAVE NO SAY AND SHOULD NOT INTERFER IN ANYONES’ MARRIAGE. WE NEED TO KNOW WHY THE WIFE IS NOT FEEDING HER HUSBAND, IS IT BECAUSE HE IS NOT BUYING ANY FOOD IN THE HOUSE? WHY IS THE WIFE NOT SLEEPING WITH HER HUSBAND? IS IT BECAUSE HE IS SLEEPING WITH SOME YOUNG GOLDDIGGING WHORE? I WOULD NOT BE SLEEPING NOR FEEDING HIM EITHER. HOW CAN YOU RESPECT A CHEATING, NOGOOD, BIGBELLY, OUT OF SHAPED,VIAGRA TALKING HUSBAND WHO IS DISRESCEPTING YOU AS THE WIFE AND IS SEEING OTHER YOUNG WHORES AND TAKING CARE OF THEM AND IS TAKING THEM ON TRIPS WHILE YOU HAVE BE FAITHFUL IN YOUR MARRIAGE AND HAVE HELPED YOUR HUSBAND PAY FROM APARTMENT RENT, CHILDRENS’ SCHOOL FEES AND ALSO IS STILL PAYING HALF OF THE HOUSE MORTGAGE WHILE SEPERATED FROM THE HUSBAND YOU THINK THAT THIS WOULD STOP SWEETHEARTING, THEN THINK AGAIN. THIS KIND OF HUSBAND DONOT EVEN DESERVE TO BE IN THE SAME HOUSE AS THE WIFE, IF THEY CAN TAKE CARE OF THE SWEETHEART AND PAY THEIR BILLS THEN THEY NEED TO GO AND SLEEP IN THEIR HOUSE OR APARTMENT. IF THEY THINK THAT THE SWEET YOUNG THING LOVE THEM THEN LET THEM LOOK AT PRINCE AND THE YOUNG THING THAT HE HAD. THEY DONOT LOVE YOU, YOU OLD ASSES, THEY ARE JUST USING YOU FOR YOUR MONEY, BECAUSE YOU CANNOT EVEN PLEASE YOUR WIFE IMAGINE THE YOUNGER WOMAN, WHO YOU HAVE TO TRY AND IMPRESS BY TAKING VIAGARA. YOU OLD JACKASSES, EVEN YOUR WIVES DONT WANT YOU!!!!!!!

    • smitty says:

      u know the pastor new about the affair, but them people was payin 10% for their salvation can’t afford ta let that money go just like that. u know how much that is when u calculate all them cheaters in churh. Nooo mannn! can’t let that go u mussie crazy. The church is a money thing, u see how much church we gat and how messed up things is.

    • Before u point fingers u sud get ur fact correct.
      No she was not a married woman scamming she was divorced fa over 4 years.He was also a Separated frm his wife fa over 5 years n going tru his divorce.Dats y family n friends r wat know her r wat u calling adamantly defending her on this site.Your question “where were all of you when she (a married woman) was sleeping with a married man, and allegedly another man”?She as a divorcee was entitle to get on with her life.N da other man like u said was allegedly. (since she was such a good christian) and stop being a jump off and/or prostitute ( a woman who sleeps with men for material gain).No one never said she was a christian she was trying her bset.N she was definitely no prostitute.I sure hope when u tell all ur family n friends to keep der leg close da listen to cue if da don’t plz remind dem dat da r PROSTITUTES.

      N its so funny dat people making him out to b the victim,no matter wat she did he had no rights to kill her.But remember today fa Nellie family n tomorrow fa others.

      Prince Hepburn i wish u well,u may have shaken Nellie family tree but i can assure u they r not broken.

      R.I.P.Nellie, ur passing leaves a lot to speculate n rumors a flying but we (family,friends n all da many lives u have touch by help with medical assistance) who know u love u n know who u were n nothing nor no one can change that.

    • Pinder says:

      I see what you’re saying, but I disagree. No one should have to tell anyone adultery is wrong. They knew what they were doing, as does every one of us. For this matter, it is said, every tub will stand on its own bottom. We all must give an account before God of the deeds done in this body. Others can talk all they want, but if the individual does not want to take heed, they don’t. People may have talked to her and him; the church may have also; but ultimately ,it’s on him and her to get things right. No one should be blamed for this except the person(s) responsible; that’s him and to a lesser extent, her. He could have walked away, but chose not to. Let’s just pray for us and our children.

  14. Godislove says:

    I pray they hang this man for what he did to this woman.

  15. the realist says:

    why are people constantly making excuses for prince Hepburn? This shit was premeditated, he knew exactly what he was doing. I could understand if he had just shoot her or stab her once and killed her. He chopped her up like he was chopping up meat. I feel no pity for this man, people are trying making to turn this whole situation out to be nellie’s fault. This man cheated on his wife of many years to be with this woman, how do you think he wife felt when he was cheating? this relationship started out scandalous, so what do you expect. coma is a bitch, he cheated on his wife and somebody cheated on him, how could he have thought he would’ve had a fairy tale relationship. I really hope and pray they hang him because just going to jail for couple years is to good for him.

    • That’s right his wife didn’t chop him up when he left her he knew what he was getting into if she could cheat with him why she can’t cheat on him

    • smitty says:

      u think it was premeditated? I saw the photos and it is clear she had no clothes on. So am wondering whether he caught her in the apartment with the guy whose name is on the cutlass. i dont know am just asking.

      • Seriously, I heard someone say that the neighbor caused all of this by gossiping to this prince fellow. If that’s so, and the man name on the cutlass, it was more than likely premeditated.

      • LordsaveUs! says:

        i saw the pics too.. gruesome i tell ya! and she didnt have clothes on and i heard that he caught her in there with the man but im not sure cuz he never killed the other man! i also saw the pic were he hand was cut off… jesus…

    • Cinimin says:

      @ the realist

      I agree with u, I hope they through the book at him for this awful crime he committed. No matter what she did she did not deserve to die like that. I pray she had time to ask God to have mercy on her soul because my God is a forgiving God and would have forgiven her and welcome her into his kingdom. Who the hell are these people to judge her when they don’t even know the true story.

  16. Prince was a married man with a happy family but he made the choice to break the vow of marriage with his wife at the time and this was his choice(Prince)! He never had to leave his wife if he was such a good man! So what about those other good men who are cold blooded murderers are they still really good men …yea we have discoverd over time and human error nobody is perfect! But what i dont understand is how disrespectful and cold hearted many of the people who commented are…. NO DOG SHOULD BE MURDERD AS BRUTAL AS THIS WOMAN WAS.. We must remember we have grandmothers,mothers,aunts,daugther and nieces now put anyone of them you love on the ground brutally murderd!!! And if the woman left on the ground still got what she deserved…. DONT BITE YA TOUNGE!!!!

  17. ExpketiveBMP says:

    Jokey Jokey Jokey: Seriously folks, the term CHRISTIAN is synonymous with; “I did not have sexual relations with that woman.” Or even better; “We’re going into Iraq to save the people from tyranny, not for oil.” Christ said; “By their fruits you will know them.” And don’t forget, the Pharisees thought they were God fearing worshipers. Yet, Jesus called them the offspring of vipers doing the will of their father the devil. Being a professed CHRISTIAN requires proof you are who you say you are. If I claim to be a Doctor; a body of people who knows what the text book says, can verify I know what I know. Or, my patients has expressed satisfaction of my diagnostic skills. THE PROBLEM IS, we have tooooooo many word of mouth Christians; You Know the type, they claim to Be Christian, yet, they’re homosexuals, or they’re adulterers, or they’re fornicators, drunkards, gamblers, having no natural affection, haters of the poor, ruthless, cunning, ignorant of the scriptures, followers of men rather than followers of God. Preaching the doctrines of men rather than the glorious goodness of God ( Don’t think I’m saying I’m holy because I’m not, I’m a perpetual professional predicating sinner like everyone else, but I don’t claim to be a Christian because I know I’m scum. So if you’re scum, admit it, and don’t say “I’m Christian” in the hope that your lie will soften the face of others, or that your lie will afford you some reward or crown you can wear in the front of others to help your sinful pride). This PRINCE person is probably no different since, he is said to be a CHRISTIAN. What evidence supports this? Not that he claimed to be one, but, what evidence exist that he actually was one, beyond him saying that he was one? He’s as Christian as these glam rappers I mean preachers that claim Jesus wants you to be rich “now pay your tithe”. Or my personal favorite, give them your bank account so they can pay your tithe automatically, or having ATMs in their churches. These ones may be no different than the PHARISEES who squeeze out the gnat but gulp down the CAMEL. Christ said, happy is the poor, and even further, it’s harder for a rich person to inherit God’s kingdom, and it’s better to have a little than a lot—all this Christ directed at real CHRISTIANS, yet these glamor rappers, I mean preachers/religious leaders, focus on paying tithes to fund big houses, big bank accounts, private expensive vehicles. Even more virile, they bombast their flock with, who sweet hearting who, which government needs to stop doing foolishness, and for their members to stop ripping off the church and pay tithes tithes. In Contrast, Christ spoke of loving your enemy, and how doing God’s will of preaching the goodness of God’s kingdom from house to house and village to village (even going as far as to tell his followers not to carry food, but to eat whatever the householder offers them when preaching from house to house), and how this was the actions of CHRISTIANS (his actual followers). Maybe I’m wrong though, maybe this Prince person was a typical BAHAMIAN CHRISTIAN. The type of Christian that when the Christian Council correctly deduced that Junkanoo is rivalry (an act of near to uncontrolled merry making), and publicly cautioned people about following such anti-Christian rivalry, and INSTEAD of the BAHAMIAN CHRISTIANS disciplining their heart to adjust their thinking to be in accord with the bible, THEY BECAME LOUD, and cried foul, demanding the statement be retracted; that the sin be not only supported, but the claim of it being ungodly be expunged. And the Christian Council folded like Aaron folded when the people demanded an idol made of gold; they changed their tune and retracted their statement. Typical BAHAMIAN CHRISTIAN. But like PAUL said, these ones like their EARS TO BE TICKLED. I’m thinking: that’s the kind of Christian this Prince person was.

  18. Brown says:

    Why is everyone speculating on the relationship shared between Nellie and Prince? No one REALLY knows how they felt or what was going on between the two of them whilst they were in a relationship.
    Were any of you living in the house with Prince and Nellie? Were any of you with them EVERY GOD given day? We REALLY don’t know what problems they were having at home, so we should refrain from speculating. All I am saying is that all of the stories which are circulating are one-sided. There are several sides to this story: Prince’s side, Nellie’s side and the stories of any other person who was involved in this situation. And then, underneath it ALL is THE TRUTH. And only GOD knows THE TRUTH, so stop speaking about what you don’t know and show some sympathy for both Nellie and Prince because only God really knows what they were going through at that time.

    What’s wrong with Bahamians today? Someone has just lost their life and all you can do is gossip about what she did wrong or what he did wrong? Who cares? That’s not for you to judge! The bible says “For the wages of sin is death”. Do you know what that means? ALL SINS ARE EQUAL and unless you are completely free from sin, you have no right to state your opinion on this situation. Stop judging people when you yourself are imperfect! Instead, ask God to understand what happened and that Nellie had a moment with God before she died or that Prince would seek forgiveness for what has occurred. Furthermore, pray for both families because only God knows what they are going through right now and your comments are not helping.

    R.I.P Nellie

      I so wholeheartedly agree with you, Brown. God bless you!!! No one who wasn’t a major part of their life knows what type of marriages these individuals came from. No one truly knows what they were going through. No one knows what led them to some of the decisions they made, but God knows everything. He doesn’t focus just on our actions, but moreso on our hearts. Let’s all leave the judging to the only one fit to judge – He that is without sin of any kind- the one and only true God.

        @ Smitty

        Yes, I understand where you’re coming from. But there is no harm in reading! Everyone reads the news that’s why it’s there! All I’m saying is that we need to stop trying to demean a person’s character when the only things you can use to form your own opinions are one-sided arguments. Only God knows the Truth!

        So yes, I may be like you by “trying to get the latest”, but I didn’t take it that step further by casting judgment on people or gossiping about a situation that I was not a part of!

      Amen! The most sensible comment i’ve read so far. Judge not, less they be judged! My Prayers go out to both famalies.

        Judge not that you be judged, (we often leave out) with the same measure you judge with.
        This means if we judge, we better make sure our lives are as immaculate as we are trying to get theirs.

        Now, I am not perfect… yet. Neither is anyone else. But let us strive for that perfection Jesus said to strive for.

        I sincerely hope that Nellie had a chance to cry out to God. And I hope Prince seeks God’s forgiveness for this heinous crime. I know that He is willing and able to forgive.

        What we need to realize is that it could have been any one of us. She was someone’s sister, someone’s aunt, someone’s mother.
        I don’t care what she was doing, her life was precious, as is his life. Trust that he does not feel any satisfaction from what he did. This will be on his mind for some time, and on the minds of anyone whose actions contributed to that outcome.

    @ nassau gone funky – i hope that you never find yourself in the midst of an unfortunate tragedy such as this one but in the event that you do – i hope you are in agreement and just as understanding when others express the sentiment that your loved one who has died in such a manner “got what they deserved”.

    in your case – it is truly better that you remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt…

      @ SameOle

      My friend not because you don’t understand something you have accept what someone may say or write because of their conviction. What you should do is evaluate what is being said and if it makes no sense then you might want to look elsewhere for your answer. There are many stories in the bible that makes no sense and it is because of the bible why you believe in god.
      The bible as I know it is the story of the Hebrew people who goes on to tell us how their god created them, again not you them. The story of the creation was information plagiarize from the Egyptians, Greeks and others. Remember Moses was brought up by the Egyptians so he would have shared their religious belief. The bible suggests that the other Hebrews were slaves so I would suspect that their faith was the same as ours, slaves from Africa who took on their master’s religion and language. Nonetheless, let us look at a dumb story in the bible that tells us about a little of your origins. God created Adam and Eve who then had Cain and Abel. Cain kills Able and pleads to the lord not to send away because when the people hear of what he has done to his brother those people would slay him. But yet we are told that there were only three people left. And the same god who banished him offered him protection from those people, lol Mob action.
      We can go on and on with these dumb stories, but not because you don’t understand something you have to accept what you are told unless it makes sense of cause. And here is the dumb explanation you get. “You gatta be save to understand what god mean”. Let’s not be foolish people. I don’t understand nuclear physics but am not trying to explain it away even though it could be explain.

        Our belief does not make God any more or less real than He is.
        Look at the handiwork of the universe. There had to be planning. NOTHING has any semblance of coincidence.

        The good thing is…. God gives us the free will to believe or not believe.

    What’s with the double standard? How is it the police and media are soooo quiet on the identity of the of the man she was alledgedly having an affair with? Had it been persons from the “ghetto” their names and interview of neighbors would have been all over the airwaves and print media. Same thing with the deaths of C.O.B. professor and the famous designer……….there r two standards in this country, one for the affluent and one for marginalized!

    I THINK YOU SHOULD DO A RE-READ OF THE ARTICLES CONCERNED (SLOWLY, EVER SO SLOWLY). PERHAPS THEN YOU WILL REALIZE THAT YOUR REBUKE SHOULD HAVE BEEN DIRECTED AT A POSTER NAMED “TIRED A DIS” AND NOT “STORM”.

    ONCE THIS MATTER OF THE CORRECT “ADDRESSEE” IS CLEARED UP YOU MIGHT CONSIDER POSTING AN APOLOGY TO “STORM” OR AT THE LEAST REMARKS THAT EXPRESS APOLOGY FOR YOUR ERROR, THAT IS PROVIDED YOU ARE NOT SO CONSUMED BY “PRIDE” THAT YOU CAN’T FIND IT IN YOURSELF TO DO SO. REMEMBER, “PRIDE GOES BEFORE A FALL AND A HAUGHTY SPIRIT BEFORE DESTRUCTION.”

      Storm, I am sick and tired of all your comments in every thread being in bold. Stop screaming.

      You are very intelligent and I love your commentary. However I admit at skipping most of them because reading all your paragraphs in uppercase letter is really tiring.

      Can you please show more concern and type in lowercase instead?

      It is not so hard. Do you see the Caps Lock key? Use it sometime – but in the off position

    Is this the same Koran that sanctions “lying” provided to person to whom you lie is classified as an “infidel”?

    Come again!!! Bro. there are too many current and recent incidents that testify to the violence and extremism ALL OVER THE WORLD, NOW, connected with “your faith” for you to be taken serious.

  33. Domian says:

    @ Storm. If you understood what took place in the Gardern of Eden you would not make such stupid and untangable coment about “if there was a God he would have intervined”. God made a law unto himself when he gave man “domian over the earth”. When he did this he gave man free will to run the earth without Heaven’s interference. Thus ,man having free will to do as he pleases. God will not interfere in human lives unless he is invited to do so. “Unless earth ask, Heaven can not.” These to people were not were not very good examples of “Christians”. Unfortunatly for us we see Christianity as a religion and nothing more. We have forgotten the Laws of God (I speak to the Ten Comandments. It laws are still reveltante even today. God said things to protect us from uncertianties and we go agaist those laws. It is impossible to be protected by the law if we go against it. Unlike laws of the land where there are loop holes, there is no loop holes in the laws of God. What he says will come to pass because he himself is law and will not break even his own. @Storm I pary that you find the true path to God’s Kingdom and that God open’s your eyes to see Him as he really his and not a distorted view of “Christianity”. May God’s mighty had of forgiveness rets on Mr. Prince Hepburn. what he did was painful and sad but not unforgivable. May God’s forgivenss rest upon Miss Brown’s family only through the true power of God’s forgivness can you move on and put this awfulness behind you. May His sprit of peace be your guide as you go through this very difficult time. May you find his strength and his love.

  34. Real One says:

    “Christian” is a religious belief in God in heaven. Not becuase someone is a “christian” and they beleive in God means that they are “SAVED” or “Born again”. Bahamians tend to confuse these two. Simply saying you are Christian only tells me that you are not Muslim, Hindu or some other form of religion belief. So simply saying he is a “Christian” does not say much. So the next time you hear someone say they are a “christian” ask them are you “saved, baptized and born again in Jesus”?

    Provers 26: vers 8 – 10

    10The great God that formed all things both rewardeth the fool, and rewardeth transgressors.

    If he so said he was christian cant u tell dat he was a fake one!!!! because he is married so as her christians dnt do dat run round atleast wait for a divorce he get the money! by da way i was in this same mess am married and to a hatian he use to beat me and cheat on me and use me for papers so i got out of it am not divorce as yet but am going to as soon as i get a job my boyfriend now is also married but goin through his divorce his wife had a kid with a next man so he left her we both believe in God but i could’nt take the beating and cheating one time he beat me in the front of his haitian friend he chocked me untell i could’nt talk but his friend did nothing but watch thank Goodness am out dat mess…….

  37. I wonder if George Sawyer coming to the funeral. I guess HIS WIFE won’t let him. Cause he another person whose actions have affected his children and family.

  38. She may have been a nice person I agree. But she caught on her back, she died on her back and she will get buried on her back.

    Sin is sin, we do not know the end or where either of them will end up. This thing is regardless of how gruesome a thing Prince did…GOD is the beginning and the end..Prince is still alive…we may send him to jail or hang him…but as long as he still has life..he has time to get his soul right and can still enter heaven.

    It is a story to learn from but I can bet you one thing, no matter how sad this story is…God will get the glory in the end. Many people with stop look at their lives and change.

    The decisions of Nellie and Prince did not only affect them. It has affected their children and their familys and friends. This is a time that God will move and many will be won over tho his kingdom DESPITE how sad and graphic this is.

    @ tired a dis

    THIS IS MY LAST ATTEMPT AT THIS WITH YOU, PROMISE.

    ON THE POINT ABOUT “LIFE BEING A SCRIPT” KNOWING WHAT THOUGHTS OCCUPY THE MIND OF A PERSON IS NOT THE SAME THING AS SCRIPTING HIS CONDUCT. ALL IT MEANS IS THAT GOD KNOWS WHAT ONE HAS UNDER CONSIDERATION AS POTENTIAL DECISONS, CHOICES, ETC. WHAT DO YOU FIND STUPID ABOUT THAT?

    IF I HAVE THE POWER THAT GOD HAS TO KNOW EVEN THE THOUGHTS THAT OCCUPY YOUR MIND, WHAT IS “STUPID” ABOUT POSSESSING SUCH KNOWLEDGE. IT IS SIMPLY WHAT MAKES GOD, GOD AND US … HUMAN!

    ON THE POINT ABOUT “BELIEVING THAT GOD EXIST” I SUBMIT THE FOLLOWING:

    (1) THE FACT THAT IT REQUIRES AN ELEMENT CALLED FAITH (SELAH) AND AN ACADEMIC UNDERSTANDING OF THE SCRIPTURES (IN THAT ORDER) PUTS YOU OUTSIDE THE CIRCLE OF PERSONS WHO CAN DISQUALIFY THE POINT (DOES GOD EXIST)SINCE BY YOUR OWN ADMISSION YOU DO NOT BELIEVE.

    FURTHER, UNTIL AND UNLESS YOU ARRIVE AT A POINT WHEN YOU HAVE BELIEVED (SINCERELY BELIEVED – REMEMBER THAT GOD WILL KNOW IF YOU “FEIGN” FAITH BECAUSE OF HIS SUPERNATURAL CAPABILITY TO READ ALL THOUGHTS AND MOTIVES IN THE MIND), YOU REMAIN UNQUALIFIED TO DISMISS GOD AS UNREAL.

    TELL US ABOUT YOUR “REAL LIFE EXPERINCES” (IT TAKES THAT – THIS IS NOT BOOK READING), ARRIVED AT THRPOUGH SINCERE FAITH AND AN UNDERSTANDING OF THE SCRIPTURES. TELL US HOW DESPITE GENUINE FAIT IN GOD, UNDERSTANDING OF THE SCRIPTURES THROUGH READING THEREOF, YOU FOUND GOD TO BE UNREAL WHEN YOU CALLED ON HIM TO BE YOUR LORD AND SAVIOR.

    DON’T KEEP US WAITING AND PLEASE, PLEASE BE SHAMEFUL ENOUGH NOT TO REPEAT THE SENSELESS LINE THAT DISQUALIFIED YOU IN THE FIRST INSTANCE (I DON’T BELEIVE). WHAP!!!

  42. Lady Russell says:

    I hear you, BP. Thank you for the toe-tapping reminder that God’s laws are ultimately designed for our protection. I shall continue to avoid the trap of relationships which defy His official sanction. However, concern for my fellow Bahamians living in physically abusive situations prompts the commentary which follows:

    How sad that the perpetrator was not discouraged following his first violent attack against the deceased! How do I know? Been there and done that!

    Sitting in the locked Taxi Cab outside the Magistrate’s Court in Freeport, Grand Bahama (1983), I prayed that a Police Officer would respond to the loud threats of harm being hurled at me and offer me the protection of a safe escort into the Courtroom, as I sought a Restraining Order to bound my “Abuser” over to keep the peace towards me, following an earlier physical altercation witnessed by the tenants of our 56 Unit Apartment building.

    I clearly recall the fear, rejection and callous disregard of my Driver who wanted me out of the Taxi Cab and the obvious disinterest of the starched uniformed Constable standing near the Court who also did not wish to have his routine disturbed by our potentially violent drama, largely focused on who would collect the future rents to service the huge mortgage on our jointly held real estate investments.

    It is most tragic that laws to govern the natural ebb and flow of male/female human relationships in The Bahamas have not kept pace with our material growth and development, while the enactment of laws to protect dogs and turtles have enjoyed priority consideration by Bahamian legislators.

    How do we explain the exorbitant travel costs incurred to our $4 Billion plus dollars national debt by dim-witted Parliamentarians on fact-finding missions to international forums like the United Nations and others, who have returned with non-starters like “The Marital Rape bill”?

    Social Scientists have posited that in a changing world where concepts like individualism, materialism, self-actualization and sexual freedom have strained established romantic relationship norms to explosive outbursts of violence, that only legislative changes will provide redress.

    New laws to promote domestic peace have been enacted in other progressive jurisdictions concerned about protecting the institution of “The Family”. I refer specifically to the ANTI-VIOLENCE ACT of Vienna, Austria, which guarantees the removal of the violent offender from the home and provides for mandatory counselling classes in DOMESTIC ABUSE INTERVENTION CENTERS.

    Prayerfully, we will soon elect a cadre of sane legislators who will craft laws designed to restore the peace and prosperity of the Bahamian people generally! AMEN!& AMEN!

    @ tired a dis

    YOU ARE GETTING TIRED FOR SURE. YOU ARE MOVING AWAY FROM THE PREMISE OF YOUR EARLIER POSITION (STRETCHING THE POINT WILL NOT CHANGE YOUR EARLIER CONTENT AND CONCLUSION). DON’T BECOME A MOVING TARGET. STAY WITH YOUR EARLIER POSITION.

    AGAIN, THE FACT THAT MAN HAS “FREE WILL” AND THAT GOD HAS GIVEN MAN TIME AND KNOWLEDGE ENABLES MAN TO DECIDE HOW HE WILL USE THAT POWER (BE SELF DETERMINING). YOU QUESTIONED “HOW” GOD COULD STAND BY AND WATCH “EVIL” VISITED ON PEOPLE. MY RESPONSE TO YOU IS THE SAME AS BEFORE. GOD HAS EMPOWERED MAN TO MAKE CHOICES AND DECISIONS. PUT ANOTHER WAY, WHEN YOUR PARENTS GAVE YOU LIFE THROUGH INTIMACY, THAT ACT DOESN’T PERMIT THEM TO IMPOSE THEIR VIEWS ON YOU FOREVER. AT SOME POINT YOU BECAME AN ADULT (SELF DETERMINING) AND IT IS AT THAT POINT THAT YOU MAKE YOUR OWN DECISIONS. QUESTION: HAVE YOU EVER SEEN A CHILD WHO STARTED A NATIONAL WAR? NO! WHY? WELL, BECAUSE THEY HAVE NOT REACHED THE POINT AT WHICH THEY BECOME SELF DETERMINING (ADULTS). YOUR POSITION WOULD HAVE MERITS IF IT DOESN’T DEPICT MEN WHO ARE CLEARLY ASTRAY FROM WHAT THE SCRIPTURES TEACH IN TERMS OF CONDUCT (THROUGH THEIR USE OF SELF DETERMINATION). THEREFORE, YOU ARE POINTING AT CONDUCT THAT REBELS AGAINST GOD’S WORD AND ASKING SUCH CONDUCT TO GIVE EVIDENCE OF THE EXISTENCE OF GOD. HOW DOES THAT MAKE YOU SEEM? KEEP THE DISCUSSION ON THE HIGH (NO CUSSIN’ NECESSARY – USE YOUR INTELLIGENCE TO DEFEND YOUR POSITION).

    • tired a dis says:

      @Storm
      clearly your skull is to thick to understand the concept that there is no god. Because a loving god the one we learnt about in the holy bible, would not sit back and watch people destroy themselves and others. sorry i spoke to soon he did have people killed did he not, what a joke. From your Blogs i suspect that you are an intelligent woman; however, we throw that away when we accept these dumb stories as facts. People are responsible for their own actions and there is no god or devil pulling their strings. Wrong and right is enate and deciding when and how to commit ourselves to either can be determined by many factors. A child who learns how to steal to survive didn’t have a choice but he continues his trade into adulthood and influence others. A child who was molested and subsequently becomes permiscuous didn’t choose this path and may find himselve molesting others who again didn’t have a choice. A young boy in Africa who is force into being a child solidier didn’t have a choice but as an adult he is well taught in how to kill, rape and maime and you say he has free will. pull your head outta the sand and accept reallity. Recognize your responsiblty as a Bahamian whose culture has afforded you certain values even though those values maybe steeped in religious beliefs you should be smart enough to decipher reality. Nonetheless, there is no god but its up to you whether you want to believe this or not.

      Storm am finish with this, reserve your comments for someone else.

      • @Tired a dis ONLY a FOOL says there is no God, but if dats what you believe thats your rights but I pray that before you close your eyes in death that God will allow you to see Him as He is.

  44. I totally agree with you Kim. I hope that other persons out there doing the same thing would take heed. If you destroy the marriage, you destroy the family, destroy the family then you destroy the community, if you destroy the community then you destroy the church, the work place, the government, the social environment and if you destroy these entities the you have succeeded in destroying a nation. So you thrill seekers please think twice before you go in search on that one night of pleasure. Marriage is a union sanctioned by God, the sacredness of family is very important to him. There is no other relationship where people are referred to as bone of my bone and flesh of my flesh, please leave other person husbands and wives alone. God bless you.

  45. I read through all of these and more than half of them are condemning bloggers for judging. It is judging in a sense, but judging is defined as forming an opinion about through careful weighing of evidence and testing of premises. In short,judging is forming an opinion. In reality we all have opinions and we sometimes voice them. This in no way judging in the religious context as so many of you are seeing it. Because none here have a final decision on anything except their opinion and perceptions. So if you feel compelled to express your opinion I think you should be able to do so withhout recourse. Right wrong or indifferent.. Peace & Love

    @ tired a dis

    THE VERY PREMISE OF YOUR QUESTIONS ABOUT GOD DISPLAYS GROSS IGNORANCE. “GOD” EXISTENCE CANNOT BE DETERMINED OR IS UNDETERMINED BY EVENTS WHICH PROCEED FROM FREE WILL EXERCISED BY MEN.

    MAN HAS BEEN GIVEN TIME, FREE WILL AND KNOWLEDGE ABOUT GOD. AT SOME POINT WE MUST REALIZE THAT USE OF THAT FREE WILL IS DETERMINED BY MEN. THAT DOESN’T TAKE AWAY FROM THE FACT OF GOD’S EXISTENCE, IN THE SAME WAY THAT YOU MAKE DECISIONS WITHOUT REFERRING TO ANYONE ELSE, AND PERHAPS AT TIMES IGNORING SOCIAL NORMS AND COMMONLY ACCEPTED CONDUCT (BECAUSE YOU ARE AN ADULT – SELF DETERMINING). SOME PEOPLE DISREGARD GOD AND GOD’S INFLUENCE MOTIVATED BY THE SAME THING (BEING ADULT – SELF DETERMINING). THAT’S IT …. PERIOD.

    • tired a dis says:

      Storm for the most part i usually agree with what you say on these blogs, but tell me Storm do you believe in talking snakes, do you believe that a man can live in belly of a whale, do you believe that “God” knows it all, and he is the alpha and the omega. And if you do Storm, you can’t believe a god who knows your every move before you make them gives you freedom to choose, thats just stupid. If you believe he has these powers or if he even exist then your life is a script and nothing you do is of your free will.

      Renaee cut that s*** out, You know how sweet married men are LOL

  51. Okay, I am only writing because I am horrified by the impromptu grammar lesson given by MsPhd2010 because it was completely wrong!

    Here is what she wrote:

    “That said, MsPhD2010- kindly let a grammar teacher read over your writing before telling someone else what the content of his/ her writing should include or exclude.”
    This constitutes a run-on sentence. I believe the proper way to say that would be;

    “That said, MsPhD2010; kindly let a grammar teacher read over your writing before telling someone else what the content of THEIR (not his/her) writing should include or exclude.” Note the (;) and the THEIR.

    The original sentence is not a run on sentence. It was grammatically correct because “that said, MsPhd2010″ is a dependent clause – it cannot stand on its own. Therefore, the use of the semicolon [;] is wrong. Also, the use of ‘his or her’ in the sentence was correct because the antecedent (someone) is singular and must have a singular pronoun. ‘THEIR’ is incorrect because because the antecedent (the word the pronoun replaces) is not plural. Now, American English allows for the use of the general ‘their’ but typically, Bahamians do not follow US standards, but lean towards British rules, spelling etc.

    Sorry to miss the point of the thread, but giving out wrong grammar advice is very dangerous!

    • media says:

      Boy, Yinner DEEP ‘NAH’…Da Teacher gettin TEACHED!

      BP

    • How about replacing both the hyphen and semicolon with a comma, seeing that the person to whom she is speaking falls in the middle of the sentence?! Remember one of the rules for using a comma?

    • MsPhD2010 says:

      Casual observer: Read the entire thread again. I did not give a grammar lesson. In fact, I admitted that I and most people who write professionally need the services of an editor. I wrote a response to what someone said about checking my grammar. I agreed with that person and responded that they should check their grammar as well. Please get your facts right. Furthermore, while you are sitting there horrified by “the impromptu grammar lesson given,” I’m sitting here enjoying a University of Miami, PhD, a JD, a thriving consulting company and two book deals.

      Just so you’d know, I also in the process of setting up a scholarship to send deserve Bahamians to college. It is one thing to be proficient in grammar, and it is another to be proficient in comprehension. So, you may feel free to continue to take my response out of context. You may have the time and the inclination to critique my sentences but you certainly have difficulty understanding or you wouldn’t have suggested that I started this little ‘disagreement’.

      Just because someone came on here and seemingly wrote something that sounded well written, does not mean he or she is ‘teaching’ any body. You are a professional in your field, I am in mine, and that person may be in theirs. It does not mean that he or she is ‘deeper’ than anyone else here. I did not come here showing myself around, I came and did as everyone else was doing; responding to what happened to poor Nellie. I read an article that Media wrote commented on it, and ‘all hell broke loose.’

      BTW: I have never claimed to be a ‘teacher’. Once again, Media – you do not need to be so trivial. I guess you can though; it’s your blog right? I mentioned to you that I thought an article you wrote was not objective and the article seemed to pass judgment on the victim. I did not complain about any of your other articles. You said you’re being professional yet each of your response seems to be laced with snide remarks. Don’t worry, you don’t have to respond to this. I like reading your blog but I won’t be visiting your paper again. I’ll go to BahamasUncensored. Where emails and disagreements are not censored.

      You needn’t be petty. As a fellow PLP, you should know that.

      With that said, RIP Nellie. May God bless your family!

      What is done in the dark does come to light.

      Nellie wasn’t thinking about children, family or Prince when she was getting down and dirty on the bed, floor or where ever she was. She was dating a married man and was screwing another married man. How many homes she wrecking, her’s, Prince, George and probably anther Joe Blow.

      Sorry Bahamas but she got what she deserved and George you lucked out. Really LUCKED OUT! Noisy Neighbor the award goes to you. You are the hero, maybe now a lot of these cheating bastards will slow down.

      Prince was a victim of deceit. How Jealousy and envy come to play when you come home and meet someone boning the love of your life. That was pure tripout anger.

        You are off your rockers sir! God gave us a WILL. We have a choice in what we do and say! We (man and woman alike) have chosen to sin. God gave us everything we needed or could have wanted, and we (man and woman alike) wanted MORE. Don’t you dare blame God for our choices… It is truly tragic what happened, but the BIBLE tells us all that the wages of sin is death, and while HE wants us all to repent and live a life that’s pleasing to him, we all reap what we sow. I choose to say this to you because God saved me, and I pray that one day you see the need for you to let him do the same for you.

  56. Anne says:

    Wow – just wow. So many half truths – such a tragic event. I am also someone that knows both individuals and would just like to say my condolences to both families. To Prince’s daughter and his wife (they are not divorced) I also exhort you to be strong, in some ways you have lost your father/husband twice and I pray your strength in the Lord.

    No one deserves this type of death, but no one deserves to have their emotions destroyed or toyed with either. Let’s be careful with each other’s feelings, especially in relationships and more importantly when we have relationships with people that we have promised to be better for them than what they had.

  57. concerned says:

    No one, I mean no one deserves to die in this manner!!! In life and in relationships we must learn to expect the unexpected even when true love and trust abounds. No one wins in a situation such as this. The alleged killer should have held his cool and try at love again. Now he will be sent to Fox Hill to be in the presence of hardened MEN criminals for the rest of his life as opposed to being free finding love again with a woman. This lady’s family and the alleged killer’s family (especially their respective children) must go on without Mommy and Daddy! There are no winners we must think before act!!!!

    • Kim Sands says:

      Whatever Nellie was in life, she did not deserve this. Her family and friends did not deserve this. The fact that she was a member of the heart foundation, you know Nellie had to have been a caring individual. Sometime in life we all makes bad choices, if he had not taken her life so abruptly, Nellie might have planned to cleaned up her life and decided to be a better role model to her daughters, he had no rights to rob her of doing that. I hope that her daughters always hold on to the fond memories that they shared with their mother and that they were fully aware of how much loved them.

      • My deepest sympathy for both families involved here. Falling in love is a very dangerous thing. Giving your heart to another human being could literally cost one his/her life or freedom. The Bible says that ‘the hands of flesh will fail you’. So, we all need to guard our hearts with due diligence and allow only God to have ALL of our heart. We can love genuinely, but at the same time, we must control our emotions. Emotions must never control us.

        We all have fallen short of the glory of God in some area of our life. No sin is greater than the other, so we must be EXTREMELY careful not to judge. Life is just a circle, what you do to others will come back to you – someday.

  58. Suffice it to say, everyone who goes to church, and calls themselves christians aren’t following the teaching of Jesus. Now I hate to judge, but lets look at the facts. She left her husband and covets another woman’s husband. He left his wife and lives in an adulterous relationship with someone elses wife. Both lived a lie, by sitting up briskly in church as if they were legit. What ya gat here is lying, stealing, covetousness, adultery, and surprisingly added to that is murder. We need to go back to the Ten commandments and live according to what God prescribed. They are called the Ten Commandments, not the Ten Suggestions. If you offend in one, you are guilty in all….. This island needs Jesus

    • MsPhD2010 says:

      Leaving your spouse should not be a death sentence. People leave their spouses every day, just as people fall in love and out of love every day. It happens and because she did it, does not mean she is a terrible person. Unless something has changed that I don’t know about, The Bahamas is a free country. Ms. Brown is not the first, and I am willing to bet, she would not be the last who end her marriage. If her marriage wasn’t working out for her, her best option might have been to leave. Same as for him. Adultry is a sin, but that is for God to judge and not any of us. Bahamians tend to support staying in marriages despite how they are being treated. It could be because they fear they’ll get responses like some of what is being said here. Sometimes leaving is the only right thing to do. God does not sanction anyone being in a marriage if they are not being treated properly by their significant other. Quit passing judgment. It is just as much a sin to judge as it is to engage in adultry.

  59. Rogue says:

    A young lady was murdered by her companion. It does not matter whether she was a drug king pin or an adulterer. Her life was taken away from her children, family and friends. Why???? Because someone felt they should be judge, jury and executioner. We do not know his mind set but, due to his actions 2 families are now grieving.

    People always seem to magnify and dissect everything done by someone that either goes to church or claims to be a Christian. Sinners tend to act as though their actions are not as bad as someone who is a Christian. Being a Christian does not make a person perfect. It is a chosen lifestyle no different from being a rasta, a health junkie or being a vegetarian. All lifestyles take change and commitment. We are all human beings with flaws. We all fall off sometimes, some more than others. Being/claiming to be a Christian does not exempt you from mistakes, weaknesses or actions. Some of you react so strangely. If a known sinner commits a crime your reaction is less intense but, if it is printed that a person was a Christian you guys freak-da-hell out, saying “Dese hypocrits.” Everyone has the same trials and tribulations of life.

    I understand the media saying “they report it, we decide.” What is your article suppose to report? Your dislike for Christians and adulterers or The tragic death of a Bahamian woman?

    My prayer goes out to those two poor girls who are left motherless. What a horrific way to loose a mother. I do hope that this tragic incident is a wake up call for those who choose to life less than desirable lifestyles that reflect poor judgement and scandalous outcomes……WAKE UP BAHAMAS, THE ENEMY IS ON THE ATTACK AND HIS MAIN GOAL IS TO DESTROY THE FAMILY!!!

  61. I know the victim very well. With all the information being put out there about Nellie, why isn’t anyone writing about what kind of person the allerged killer was for doing such a crime. No matter what, no one whether man or woman do not deserve to die like that. I would really want to see a column on the type of man he was.

    • carole says:

      he was a decent and good man. someone who always took care of his family and help others.he also took care of her ass and her fucking kids as if they were his.she poisoned his mind and drove him stay away from his family because no one agreed with him being with her and still married. plus to sit up brisk in church with him while she knew she was a hore screwing another man in the bed he paid for and lay in.live on ya back die on ya back. go to hell on ya back.he should not have killed her he was supposed to mark her so every man can see and know she was a hore!!

        I hope you do not end up the same way. Usually the one with the firey tongue is guilty of the same crime or worse. I hope you were not the dog who carried the news. Look in the mirror your are drenched in Nellie’s blood.

        NO ONE DESERVES TO DIE THIS WAY. NO ONE!!!

        He was no Prince…He was evil in the worse way.

  62. Vanessa Blanket says:

    From my 30 years plus experience of knowing Nellie, I encountered her too be of a scrupulous character. There is no way that she deserved to die such a gruesome death. I hope justice is served! That is all!

  63. Who are yall to judge a person lifestyle. Only God can judge us. No one’s perfect everyone sins. Why yall dont talk about all the homosexuals and cross dressers we have in this country. Let the dead rip and stop gossiping. Go do stop constructive in yall lives let reading a book, yall fake christians.

    • You ask the writer who he thinks he is to be judging a person when you are doing the same. This is clearly an opinion based writing. And by talking about homosexuals and cross dressers, isn’t that also judging and gossiping?

  66. For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin with the CHRISTIAN,what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God? And if the righteous scarcely be saved,where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?

    • good evening 2 all. For all human the word of God is the same. “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life.” Romans 6:vs. 23. Hey let us all be prepare for our judgement day. Love and peace to all who reads. God is real even if you DO NOT believe that, so choose Him today. Let us pray for the bereaved families (both)

  67. Now people tell me you think if you leave your wife/hubsand for soneome you think they going to be with you 110%
    When you take from another your have learn how to keep.

    You know what you have but you donnot know what you going to get.

    BAHAMIANS stop lusting and stop spending your money on people who donot deserved it. A theif is always a theif. STAY AT HOME with your wife/husband and make the best for you and your family.

  68. To live in SIN and to die in SIN……………..you wasted this precious GOD given life on earth.

    I wonder when two people getting marreid where their minds be when they say their vows,”I take thee John Doe/Mary Sue to be my husband/wife in sicknes and health, for better for worse, for richer or poorer till DEATH do us part”.

      • MsPhD2010 says:

        Media:

        No one is saying you shouldn’t report the gruesome murder, we are saying that if you exercise the option of reporting any murder that you do so employing at a minimum the fundamental the tenants of journalistic integrity. Rather than taking the comment personal, you respond negatively. Can you imagine any reporter in any notable paper responding the way you have to people who complain about an article they wrote? No!

        Familiarize yourself with how to properly address articles of this nature and then re-write it to reflect the changes. At a minimum I think you at least owe the victim’s family an apology, seriously. Write a retraction or something. A true testament of your professionalism is depicted in your response to the person who disagreed with the content of your piece. If you were a true professional, you might have responded differently and not sound so insulted. This further provides proof that your work is trivial, at best.

        Reporters are to refrain from interjecting their personal opinions when they write and whatever is being reported must be proven. Much of what is written in your piece is opinionated and cannot be substantiated because the decedent cannot speak to tell you how she feels or felt. Furthermore, not only are you to employ the use of tact when you write but you are also responsible for the way you report ‘issues’.
        In its current form, the piece is opinion based and filled and is a reflection of your own though process.

        I understand the goal of the piece but while I share your opinion that people need to re-valuate values and ethics and while I too believe that a part of the reason for why crime is on the increase is the possibility that people have removed themselves from a Biblically based moral and value system and even though I share your anger that a senseless crime has occurred, I recommend that you say it while leaving the victim’s past in tact. The young lady, no matter what decisions she made in her life, did not deserve to be murdered!

        Bahamas Press is an excellent idea and has great potential, but if you are to achieve continued success, you must revisit the way you write provoking stories like this. The intent of the piece should be one that anyone, including the family of the victim, could read and not feel grossed out, and insulted. It should be factually based. Ultimately, the family of the victim should not have been re-victimized and feel as if their loved one was murdered all over again.

          This is so sad. That said, MsPhD2010- kindly let a grammar teacher read over your writing before telling someone else what the content of his/ her writing should include or exclude. My goodness, your “essay” above would be an excellent teaching tool in a English Language class. Commas randomly placed, when you do need a comma you for got it and on and on. Just saying- esp how you critize another for there’s.

          • MsPhD2010 says:

            Even professionals have to hire editors to read over their work. Errors are inherent when responding quickly and in ‘real-time’. With that said, it is clear that you have missed the intent of what I’ve said. My issue was not about the article’s sentence structure or grammatical errors. However, my issue relates to how you have interjected your personal opinion into your writing and how you have clearly blasted the victim.

            I thank you for pointing out my writing flaws and I shall take them into consideration. In the meantime, if there is a restriction on how long responses ought to be, I suggest you post them and I will delightfully comply. In the meantime, I take a closer look to see if perhaps I have missed it. Finally, as it happens, I am a writer and currently have two scholastic articles in publication. Thankfully, I have a second pair of eyes looking over my writing before it goes to print. Let me point something out to you though. While you criticize my mistakes, you have committed quite a few of your own.

            Here are just a few of them:

            “That said, MsPhD2010- kindly let a grammar teacher read over your writing before telling someone else what the content of his/ her writing should include or exclude.”
            This constitutes a run-on sentence. I believe the proper way to say that would be;

            “That said, MsPhD2010; kindly let a grammar teacher read over your writing before telling someone else what the content of THEIR (not his/her) writing should include or exclude.” Note the (;) and the THEIR. There are others, but I am pointing this out to show you that most people who are writing instant responses, make errors. You have made some yourself although I do not doubt that you are an intelligent person.

            Point to where my commas that are randomly placed, so that I do not make the same mistakes again. I aim to be a better writer and do not claim to be an English teacher. Oh, by the way, you meant, ‘theirs’ and not ‘there’s’.

            Have a good evening and don’t worry, I wouldn’t be posting either long or short responses after this. I just stopped by to read the article and had the inclination to respond to something someone said.

    • MsPhD2010 says:

      I agree True Bahamian. The writer of this piece should be ashamed. I wouldn’t call it an article because it lacks all the tenants of journalistic integrity. This piece shows no regard at all for the victim’s family. It is filled with personal opinions and suppositions; if not embellished nonsense. I am ashamed and I didn’t even write the piece. This is adding insult to injury. God help the family of the murdered woman doesn’t see this or it would be worst for them. No shame!

  70. Kim Sands says:

    The thing about it, I believe Nellie and Prince never trusted or respected one another from day one, anybody could of come right there and tell them anything about each other whether it was true or not and they would have believed it, because they knew the scandalous way in which their relationship got started. People is go around breaking up other people’s marriages without even realizing that sometimes they are taking on other people’s headaches. They may feel because they could get a man or woman to walk away from their marriage, they possess something special or different which their spouse doesn’t have. They would convince themselves that they are a better man or woman than the spouse. Sometime these same people they are causing to walk away from these marriages are the ones creating the problems within the marriage and they don’t know they are doing their spouses a favor. Right now Nellie ex-husband saying to himself, “ poor Prince, he did what I wanted to do longtime, but I didn’t want to get myself into any trouble” and Prince ex-wife probably saying, “ poor Nellie, I am sorry its her, but I glad it wasn’t me, that boy always did had a temper on him, that’s why I really wanted to get out of that, I just never knew when he was going to flip.”

What does going to or not going to church have to do with this unfortunate situation. Our people are not only heartless they also lack empathy… This is yet another sign of the church, the educational system, poor parenting coming home to roost. Ms. Brace remember when expressing thoughts in a public forum think of the victims family, no need to add another stab wound to the already fallen. May her soul rest in peace…

      God sits high and looks low. He knows all things. My God is the only one eligible to judge us. He created us all. God knows us better than we know ourselves. I almost made foxhill prison my home a few years ago because of sin. Jesus met me on the road to murder and he saved me. The church tried to assist me but the other party was not listening so the ssistance was of no help. We must be willing to hear and obey the voice of God. When we give your heart to flesh we are bound for disaster because the arm of flesh WILL fail you. The bible says seek God FIRST and all these things shall be added unto you. It doesnt say seek a good job,plenty money or a perfect man you can shack up with. I thank God when He met me on the road to murder and saved me. If you have never been hurt by some you love with all your heart, body and soul you cant understand what people like myself and Prince Hepburn experienced.My heart goes out to him and others like us. I dont know him but i feel him.May God’s peace shelter him today.

        media this is my first time replying to any item you have posted, however I am an avid reader of your blog. Let me say that I know Prince over 30yrs and also Nele. While they are some truth to what you say (i.e. both have ex husband/wife, they did not left those persons for each other,during their marriage commitment. Both marriages were destroyed a long time ago. Further in the case of Ms.Cox their marrige was destroyed several years prior to Prince coming into the picture. I trust that I have clarified briefly their positions to your audience.

        • Well she dead and he going to jail. No one ever talks negatively about the dead. Everyone who dies is a saint regardless of the circumstances of their death. God rest her butchered soul and God have mercy on his pending his trial. Everyone has dirt in their background.no matter who you are. From the sissy pastors, to the priest who having sex in the church, to two people who active in the church to the bum on the street. Well they enjoyed their lives without our input and let nellie enjoy her death and prince enjoy his cell without our input. We weren’t there when they were breathing up in each other face…so we really should not give a hoot about it now. It is sad that someone was killed yes. But only the two of them know what happened. Not friends who cliam to know them for years, not coworkers, not church members not BP. Only they know what really went down…one dead, and one in custody…so hope that justice will prevail.

            To be honest this is a sad case in all honesty if we who say we are a christian nation dont wake up and face that sin is all over and happening and try to live the christian life that we say we are living then this tragedy will only be a taste of Gods wrath in the Bahamas.It does not matter who did t, when they did it, how they did it and why they did it, all that matters is that we come together as bahamians and pray to God that it does not happen again and that the individual who did find Christ and ask him to have mercy on his soul, because if whats in the media about the couple found out to be true they were both living in sin.I hope the families who were effected by this crime quickly get back on there feet and can move on with there lives.Also when you think about the story that the media released, how is it that someone can chop up a person with out anyone hearing, chop him self up, when if he chopped one of his hands automatically there should be weakness in his hands that he would not be able to chap the next arm. Also after he finished the crime hes going to write on a knife this is what happens to cheaters and your next,who is next if the dispute was between the two, who is the cheater hes talking too???? When it all boils down this is sad and who ever allowed the grousome pictures out on the net should be charged, after all the familes of both victims are in mourn.
