(Stoney Grove, Nevis) A Guyanese woman was
found dead at her home Tuesday afternoon, Mar. 11,
the victim of an apparent suicide.
The victim was found hanging from the rafters by
a rope on her front porch, discovered by a neighbor
passing by, who notified police.
Dr. Chandy Jacob made the pronouncement of death
and according to reports friends, neighbors, a crowd
of the morbidly curious and at least one photographer
gathered around the victims home to gaze on
the familys tragedy.
Shakila Chaitram, 42 moved to Nevis from Guyana with
her husband Shawn several years ago. Reports indicate
she was very depressed because of the loss of a child.
She is survived by her husband and a teenage son.
The woman was very highly regarded by her community
and she had regularly attended the Shiloh Baptist
Church in Ramsbury for many years.
This is such a sad thing. Not just for her
family, but everyone who knew her, said a friend.
People ask why God allowed it but I don't have
that answer. I just know that God knows best and we
have to trust that He will work everything out for
the good of all.
