All of Antigua and Barbuda continues to experience trauma and pain upon learning of the gruesome murder of another of their youthful and vibrant citizens.

Neltah Telemaque is in the prime of her youth at age 25 years; engaged to be married later this month; trusting and magnanimous in the face of trouble; and, made to be the victim of calculatingly evil hands and murderous thoughts.

“On behalf of the Government and people of Antigua and Barbuda,” the Prime Minister wrote, from the airport in Dubai, “I express the heartfelt condolences to the family and friends of Neltah Telemaque, who was brutally murdered sometime on the weekend.”

The Prime Minister has signalled to the Cabinet and the Commissioner of Police that no stone is to be left unturned, in order to gather the evidence necessary to bring to justice the criminal who is responsible for this murderous act. The pain which this act has inflicted on the loved ones, and the strangers who feel impacted by this killing, cannot be detached from our national consciousness, the Prime Minister indicated.  

“May God safeguard her soul,” the Prime Minister concluded.
