THE KELLMAN Land, Black Rock, St Michael community is shaken following the death of its “sweetest young girl”.

Dead is 23-year-old Tiara Clarke, who was involved in a vehicular accident on Saturday around 3:25 p.m. along the Adams section of the ABC Highway. She was the passenger while the car was driven by a 32-year-old woman whose identity has not been disclosed.

Clarke, a former Hindsbury Primary and Alleyne School student, lived with former stepfather Glen Stoute in 2nd Avenue Kellman Land. The tragedy has left Stoute a shaken man.

Tremendous loss

“‘Titi’ was a gem. There is nothing bad nobody could tell you about she. There is no one sweeter. If she pass you a million times, she would speak each time. This is a tremendous loss,” he said.

Stoute said he and Clarke were so close that she opted to stay with him even after he and her mother Roslyn Clarke ended their relationship. He said he had known her since she was a little girl and her loss has hit him hard, as she was family, blood relative or not.

“I was getting ready to go to work that evening when a fella ask if I hear my daughter dead. I couldn’t believe it. I called her mother and sister but I didn’t hear them. When I get work, I had to leave and come home and that night, she mother come and fall down right here in my arms. All I could do is cry,” he said (CA)
