Woman Stabbed To Death in Adelaide
Adelaide Village was the scene of the latest brutal murder on New Providence Island.
Shandie Cartwright of Johnson Road, and a man presumed to be her boyfriend, were in an area known as a “lover’s lane” when two armed men attacked the couple.
Ms Cartwright was fatally stabbed and the male victim received wounds to his arm.
The attackers also stole their car, a black Hyundai Accent with the licence plate number 223079.
Ms Cartwright, 22, was an employee of the Royal Bank of Canada’s Palmdale branch.
It is reported in the Tribune newspaper that the male victim went door-to-door in an attempt to get help. Residents from at least two different houses refused to answer their door because it was late or they were home alone.
The man, who was bleeding profusely, was finally able to get assistance from a resident who called the police.
A 23 year-old man is allegedly being questioned by police in relation to the incident.
The police and local residents, in their usual state of denial, say this is an “isolated incident”, “quiet community”, “never happens here”, “safe place to come”, etc.
Yet, when a bleeding man came knocking on doors in this “peaceful community” several people were afraid to answer their door. Why? Because all of New Providence is a scary place.
Adelaide is only minutes away from where other murders have taken place. It is all the same island, the same community, and there have been nearly one-hundred murders on this island in the past 12 months.
Until Bahamians admit that their country is unsafe and crippled with crime, there will be no solutions. As long as everybody keeps saying this is “peaceful community”, crime will continue to sprial out-of-control until…crime
