Fundraiser for murder victim’s children launched

An online fundraiser  has been launched to  raise $50,000 to support the two children of  29 year old murder victim Sandrina Joseph.

The fundraiser was launched on the same day that she died.

Joseph and  her 26 year old boyfriend. Jeffery Cashim Abella, were found dead at their home at Tamarind Heights, La Clery,  on Wednesday, February 1, 2017.

The children of the deceased woman, aged 10 and 11, were the ones who raised the alarm after finding the two bodies  at around

Organizers of the  campaign have said that the  traumatised youngsters  were left alone and scared that they no longer have their main support to provide for them.

“The funds are needed as soon as possible to help assist the children in paying for their mother’s funeral as well as food and shelter,” a statement on said.

“Our family will be extremely grateful for any donations given to help support the children during this traumatic time,” the statement said.

Neighbours said the deceased mother of the two children had received death threats from an ex boyfriend who had vowed to kill her once he got out of jail.

Once suspect was arrested shortly after the double homicide.

      You mean to tell me there is not one decent person in the family (or more), willing and capable of burying their loved one and/or caring for these children. And please be transparent. What do a 10 and 11 year old know about burying people? Don’t use the poor children so.

      What happens then when the $50,000 is done? Is it back to the public for support? Is this the only way they will be cared for?

        I agree with u, St. Lucian are to dishonest. Why must people pay for someone’s burial, when they have family? U people need to stop using the kids to get money from people that the country donr have. $50,000 for what? STOP THIS FOOLISHNESS!

    Death threats are not regarded seriously by the police, perhaps if it was someone of influence then something would be done sad to say, St Lucians lets daily remember the children and the decease parents in our prayers, these are difficult times for them.

      St. Lucians police force is the worst most ignorant, unintelligent, uneducated set of wanna be’s the world has in function at this moment. Can’t wait for america to invade on them and take over. No proper training, they join the force for name and they become more illiterate over the years. They hear a minister’s character was being smashed on facebook for his nastiness, sleeping with young girls and refuse to pay his bill. They quickly made an arrest. But a threat to take one’s life, because she has no name, nothing was done. These useless so called officers, need to get cleaned up. Just fire all and rehire people with a desire to work for the people. Maybe ill write or tweet trump to let him know of the slackneas thats taking place in st. Lucia, lets see what he has to say.

    Threats to kill is a criminal offence but most people who report it don’t want the offender arrested and charge. Because they believe the court process is to long. They normally request a warning or their make the report for future reference. So the police can only do what the complainant wants.

    Not death threats or not even an order of protection could have saved the victims, who’s watching.Did the murderer have on a leg bracelet to track his where abouts,Did the victims knew that he was getting out,in no way was death threats the trigger.The system had nothing in place to protect the victims.They should have given them safety.The system failed again.

    If the threat wasnt reported what can the police do? Also, as mentioned above in a comment, most people only report and dont want charges to be brought up against the individual. They report for future reference
