Twin sister ‘had feeling’ something was wrong
When Jason Skinner and his nephew Ackeem Miller left their Belfield, Fairfield, Black Rock home to go fishing just after midday last Wednesday, their family never expected only one would return.
Skinner got into difficulties while spearfishing off Paradise Beach, near Batts Rock, St Michael, after 3 p.m. and later died at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital.
Yesterday his family was trying to come to grips with his death, but his twin sister Tamiko Skinner took the news hardest.
With tears welling in her eyes, Tamiko said she had an “all right relationship” with her brother and even though they did not talk every day, when something was wrong they would always reach out to each other.
She said her last clear image of her brother was him sitting on the step fixing his bicycle recently. She remembered fondly one of their final conversations while they sat in her car last Saturday and updated each other on how things were going in their lives.
