ITALY| More shocking information is coming into Bahamas Press as the Italian police attempt to solve the mystery behind the the deaths of two Bahamian men whose bodies were fished out of the Po River in Turin, Italy this week.
The two young friends, Blair John, a 28-year-old psychologist, and Alrae Ramsey, a 29-year-old diplomat, went missing sometime after meeting up in Italy for a speaking event. But their disappearance and later discovery has quickly become an international thriller as questions now surface on both sides of the Atlantic.
Bahamas Press can now tell you investigators have now hit a roadblock in solving the mystery as the suitcases of both men have vanished from their apartment.
When they both were retrived from the river, they still had in their pockets the keys to the house they rented. So what has happened to their bags?
The men had decided to meet up in May at the 19th Eawop congress. Blair presented with his colleagues from St. Mary’s University at the congress. That presentation took place last Friday.
Both men earlier had taken up residence in a suburb apartment, not far from the congress. Then concerns began to build.
On Saturday morning, Ramsey was expected in Vienna for an exam, but he didn’t show up, and this became the first sign of an alarm.
Quaestor of Turin, Giuseppe De Matteis, earlier announced following the discovery of the second man John’s body that “no elements emerge that lead us to believe that the two Bahamian citizens have been victims of crimes or violent acts.” Well, this is a shock, especially after adding to this detectives have yet to locate the men’s suitcases.
This fact alone has left investigators scrambling for answers and are now pressured to rethink their hypothesis on the conclusion of the incident; What really happened on the day they vanished?
Ya know the Italian police are beginning to sound like they operate similar to RBPF detectives, who allowed a housemate to vanish after discovery of a corpse at Port New Providence in the murder of Dannie Lea on May 19th. What is this?
Both John and Ramsey completed their undergraduate degrees at St. John’s University in Collegeville. John went on to earn his master’s in psychology in 2015 at St. Thomas University in Saint Paul, Minnesota, and had moved to St. Mary’s University in Halifax where he was earning his Ph.D.
Ramsey, who had moved to Vienna to attend the Diplomatic Academy, was on leave from the Foreign Office in The Bahamas and had just received a grant for his studies from the Bahamas Government.
With the men suitcases not found, and their personal items vanished and with the keys to their apartment all still inside their pockets, the Italian police must now monitor the CCTV of the apartment where the men stayed to properly conclude what really happened with their belongings!
Anyway – BP is on the job!
We report yinner decide!
