MARCH BRINGS TEARS
LESS than 24 hours after her daughter’s battered body was found, Jacqueline Gibbs joined about 200 women and a few men in a march against domestic abuse.
On Friday morning police made the gruesome discovery of the partially nude body of 23-year-old Onicka Gulliver in a bushy area at Vaucluse, St Thomas, 48 hours after she had gone missing from her Station Hill, St Michael home. Reports indicate that she was beaten and strangled and may have been sexually assaulted.
A grieving Gibbs said it took every ounce of strength in her body to join the march, which was organised by CITA Radio and the Girlfriend Get A Life radio show.
As the supportive crowd formed a circle around her at Queen’s Park, Gibbs, her voice barely audible, spoke of how horrified she was when she viewed her daughter’s body and saw that her face had been disfigured. Sympathetic cries came from those gathered as she went into graphic details.
