Two visitors die in accidents

TWO visitors were among three persons who lost their lives through apparent accidents last weekend.

On Saturday morning, police were called to the scene of a well-known guest house in the south of the island after the body of man was found in the yard of the property.

Businesswoman, Merle McEwen, owner of Mi Hacienda Guest House, located at Gulf Course, St. George’s, said her son, Ken McEwen, fell off the balcony of his room, from a height of about 30ft,
resulting in his death.

The elderly woman said her son, who is from England, but was in Grenada on vacation, came home at about 2 a.m. Saturday morning, fell off the balcony, and was found dead at about 5 a.m.

Later in the day, it was reported that Emmanuel Presley Williams was on Grand Anse Beach with
a group of friends and went for a swim and disappeared. His body was later discovered in the water by children. Williams is said to be in his mid-40s.

Police are also investigating the circumstances surrounding the death of a 69-year-old man whose body was discovered close to the shoreline at Prickly Bay Marina, St. George.

Yachter, Uwe Walker Timm’s body was discovered on Sunday, January 20, 2013 by two men who were on a fishing expedition.

A post-mortem is expected to be conducted on the body to determine the actual cause of death.

Meanwhile, police said that they are continuing investigations into the death of a retired nurse who was found hanging in her home in the affluent Fort Jeudy area last Friday. (LS)
