The family of a sixty-three-year-old woman from the village of Mt Parnassus in St George’s whose lifeless body was retrieved from the water of Halifax Habour last Friday are yet to come to grips with what they termed, the mystery surrounding the death of their family member.
The body of Eslyn Andall a former school teacher was pulled out of the water just after mid-day on Friday after being spotted by fishermen in the area, some seven days after she was reported missing.
Sources told the Grenada Informer that it is still not clear how the sixty-three-year-old woman had gotten to the area, evading a search party and the eyes of the general public that had been on the lookout for her after she was listed as missing.
What is also ironic about the situation, one individual told our news desk, is that the area where the former teacher’s body was discovered, is the very same place her younger sibling Sharon Andall met her death under similar circumstances, except at the time, she driving a vehicle when it plunged into the sea.
Meanwhile, only the day before the former teacher’s body was discovered, Informer spoke to her sister who indicated that the now deceased woman was recovering from two stroke attacks that seem to have affected her memory.
The sister noted that on the day she went missing, she was on her way to visit her daughter and must have wandered off track, and never made it back home despite rumours that she was spotted in the town and Grand Anse area on different occasions.
The Informer was told however that a post mortem carried out on Randall’s body on July 8th, suggested that her death had, in fact, occurred days prior to the discovery and was as a result of trauma to the head consistent with a fall.
A release from the Public Relation Department of the Royal Grenada Police Force thanked the general and the media for their support in the search and subsequently unfortunate recovery of Andall’s body.
