DEATH MYSTERY DIFFICULTIES: WOMAN DEATH FOR A "HOUSE HOUSE" IN JAMAICA?
Police at the Black River Criminal Bureau of Jamaica, West India did not confirm or refuse it on Friday night but a Bronx woman told PIX11 that she was told by a Jamaican relative that her 45-year-old mother was assassinated at St part of Elisabeth on the island.
The daughter said her mom's body is in the morgue from last Saturday March 3, when she was found.
"Someone drowned her like a rope," said Diona Pryce for her mother, a former certified nurse who lived half a year in the Bronx. Pryce recognized her mother as Dorrette Coke Lawson, known to most friends as Karen.
"It has $ 600 in US money stolen, some money from Jamaican and its only cell phone," said Pryce. "She had so many jewels and valuables at home, and that's all she got."
If the mother of the three daughters is officially recognized, it will mark the second New Yorker murdered in Jamaica in recent months.
The other victim was 26-year-old Desiree Gibbon of Queens, New York.
Gibbon's beaten body was discovered by a road near Montego Bay in late November, in the northern part of Jamaica.
Diona Pryce said her mother had begun to build a "dream home" in the southwest of the island just ten years ago, but there has always been a controversy over the good he had bought.
"She touched her land and started building a house on her," said Diona Pryce. "She had her papers and everything, her act!"
When he started building the house around 2007, Coke Lawson met with violence when he came to visit her mother, according to Pryce. She said an armed robber stopped her mum's taxi before she reached her grandmother's home country. He said the bandit shot Dorrette Coke Lawson when he did not abandon his money and jewelry right away.
Coke Dawson did not return to Jamaica for two and a half years, according to her older daughter.
"I think it's just jealousy," said Pryce. "They just did not want to be happy."
Pryce said that Dorrette Coke Lawson had migrated to the United States when he was 12 years old and became an American citizen. Later he worked in a home violence shelter and nursing home as a cook and certified nurse assistant. But he wanted to build a house in Jamaica. After being shot, Coke Lawson received social disability insurance and other benefits, according to her daughter.
"When we were young, back in our teenage days, we went to Jamaica for Christmas and stay in the new years," he remembered. "Everything was always good."
Now, Pryce said he had difficulty getting information from the Jamaican authorities. She said she was told her uncle would go to the morgue on Friday.
PIX11 News contacted Nain Police Station in Jamaica before requesting us to call the Criminal Investigation Office in the Black River area. The first person to respond to Black River said he was unfamiliar with the case.
Then a female supervisor picked up the phone and said she did not tell us anything because she did not know us.
Then he said, "I can neither confirm nor deny anything.
