British woman found hanging in Berbice house


A British woman was on Sunday evening found dead at a house in New Amsterdam, Berbice.

The 50-year-old Dajee Sarah Rosemary, also called Rosie Dajee, an accounts assistant at Admin Re Alico, was discovered hanging from the ceiling of a house at Pope Street, New Amsterdam with a phone cord around her neck.

Dead: Dajee Sarah Rosemary

The discovery was made about 19:30h by her friend and co-worker Jessica Grumble with whom she came to Guyana two weeks ago for a three-week vacation.

According to reports, about one week ago, Rosemary started acting strangely. On one occasion, she told Grumble’s mother, who is a Guyanese also home on vacation, that she was getting married to a local photographer.

Rosemary had also reportedly requested to take Grumble on a trip to the Kaieteur Falls. However, Grumble’s mother did not allow it, reportedly saying that the weather was too bad.

On Saturday, however, Rosemary said she was leaving the country and requested a ride to the Cheddi Jagan International Airport (CJIA) for a late-night flight. However, at the Airport, it was discovered that her name was not listed on any flight, but in an effort to assist the airline clerk asked Rosemary for her passport, but she reported that she could not find her passport.

She was taken back to New Amsterdam.

Around 19:30h on Sunday, Rosemary’s friend made the horrific discovery and an alarm was raised.

The matter was reported to the Police, who examined the body.

The body was transported to the New Amsterdam Hospital.

Meanwhile, B Division (Berbice) Commander, Assistant Commissioner Paul Williams said that an investigation has been launched.
