THE?FAMILY?OF?Shereece Whyte, the 21-year-old who was shot dead in Barbados on April 1, is now facing another dilemma: the inability to get her body home for a proper burial due to lack of finances.
Maureen Johnson, Whyte’s mother, told the Jamaica Observer that she had been informed it would cost JAM$1 million (BDS$18 264.89) to get the body to Jamaica.
The mum said she appealed to the foreign ministry but was told that it didn’t offer the kind of financial assistance she was seeking.
“Poor me, I don’t even know where to start all now, for basically mi nuh live nowhere,” Johnson lamented. “She is the only help I have. She have two children and she go to try help the family.” (SP/Jamaica Observer)
