Nassau, Bahamas – Bahamas Press agents on Grand Bahama are racing to the Eight Mile Rock area to gather details of the country’s 4th murder in less than 12 hours.
We can tell you at this hour a female, believed to be in her early 20s, was stabbed to death and knifed deep in the throat following what appears to be a domestic dispute in the Hanna Hill community.
Sources now at the scene tell us that the young woman’s throat was slashed deeply following that altercation which occurred between her and another person. We are told following the fatal stabbing her attacker fled the area. [The attacker’s capture is still unconfirmed].
