Woman From Guyana Beats Wrong Woman By Accident In The BVI

BVI court house



ROAD TOWN, Tortola, BVI — A Guyanese woman who lives at Purcell Estate on Tortola, it appears, ended up beating the wrong woman she thought was having an affair with her male lover.

It turned out she actually beat a translator who, possibly unwittingly, was facilitating a love triangle. At the time she was attacked, BVI News Online understands, the translator was interpreting a letter the Guyanese woman’s lover had received from his Spanish-speaking paramour.

The translator, who was treated at Peebles Hospital, reported the beating to the Royal Virgin Islands Police Force (RVIPF) which launched an investigation.




The RVIPF, while not disclosing details of the case, yesterday reported that the 47-year-old Guyanese woman has been charged with assault causing actual bodily harm.

John McCarthy is primarily known for his investigative reporting on the U.S. Virgin Islands. A series of reports beginning in the 1990's revealed that there was everything from coliform bacteria to Cryptosporidium in locally-bottled St. Croix drinking water, according to a then-unpublished University of the Virgin Islands sampling. Another report, following Hurricane Hugo in 1989, cited a Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) confidential overview that said that over 40 percent of the U.S. Virgin Islands public lives below the poverty line. The Virgin Islands Free Press is the only Caribbean news source to regularly incorporate the findings of U.S. Freedom of Information Act requests. John's articles have appeared in the BVI Beacon, St. Croix Avis, San Juan Star and Virgin Islands Daily News. He is the former news director of WSVI-TV Channel 8 on St. Croix.
