A relative who had spoken with iNews under the condition of anonymity said that the family was still suspicious about the circumstances surrounding the young lady’s death.

It was pointed out that several friends had gone to the Aracari resort but none of the others were injured nor did they seek to intervene when the fight started between Thomas and Williams.

“Two car loads of girls and none of them ain’t hold the people back? Renita is the only one that go into the hospital with blood,” said the relative.

iNews understands that there were several altercations in the past between the two young women but they always managed to make amends; however something provoked the radical response on Thursday evening.

Further, it was stated that Thomas was warned to stay away from Williams given their differences but those warnings went unheeded.
