Photos of abuse victim – before and after

Relatives of alleged abuse victim, Virginia Raveneau, have submitted before and after photos to the Times.

One photo shows a vibrant looking female.

The family says it was taken on 2014 when Raveneau visited the United States

The other shows a bed-ridden individual whom family members said they could barely recognize when they laid eyes on her this year.

Raveneau was taken by her children on January 23, 2016 to the United States for medical evaluation and treatment.

The Times was informed that the seventy year old has been admitted to a hospital in Orlando,  Florida.

A spokesperson for the family disclosed that as soon as Raveneau is better and is able to walk again, they intend to bring her back to Saint Lucia.

According to the spokesperson, the reason is to press charges against the caretaker whom they have accused of abusing her since late 2014 when she returned to Saint Lucia from the US .

Police have said that they cannot press charges in the absence of a virtual complainant.

    I hope they press charges and threw the book at this abuser, if she is found to have committed such an act. One step at a time, we can ensure that it’s not business as usual.

    Something doesn’t add up.. If she was so vibrant and energetic why did she need a caretaker ? There are two sides to every story. She will probably very ill after her trip to the U.S. That’s why she needed a caretaker . I have heard many stories about this incident and some of them sound really farfetched. Did the family abandon their dear sister from 2014 to 2016 ? They claimed the abuse began in 2014, is it that no one checked up on her on a regular basis ? How could one not know that such a thing was going on for almost two years ? Really ? It is a little too late to care now ..

      If you don’t know anything you just need to shut the hell up Mr or Ms SMH. It would add up if you knew the whole story.
