Dead woman’s body flown to St. Maarten for autopsy

STATIA - The body of the 24-year-old Colombian woman Alexandra Gaviria left St. Eustatius aboard a chartered flight with a police officer on Wednesday, to St. Maarten, where an autopsy is expected to be performed.
 
Members of Emerald Funeral Home arrived on board the flight and were met by a detective at the FD Roosevelt Airport and taken to the St. Eustatius Queen Beatrix Medical Center where the body was in the morgue since Sunday evening, when it was removed from a residence in Concordia and Blijden Road.
 
An autopsy is expected to be carried out on the body of the deceased as soon as a pathologist arrives from Curaçao. Contrary to what had been reported earlier, a pathologist has not yet examined the body. The forensic team from St. Maarten were in Statia to assist with the investigation.
 
Gaviria arrived in Statia on June 5. She was found dead 20 days after arriving on the island, on Sunday, June 25. A wounded person, who was found in the dwelling, where her body was discovered, has been arrested as part of the investigations into her death.
 
The community in St. Eustatius, particularly the Hispanic community, is very saddened by the incident. Gaviria's family is trying to raise funds to take her body back to her native Colombia for burial there. If it's not possible for them to raise sufficient funds for this, the family will use the funds to travel to St. Maarten for a burial in that country.
 
The residents of Statia are being urged to assist with a voluntary donation to help the family with the repatriation of Gaviria's body. "Any help will be greatly appreciated,” family friend Santiago Otalora said. Persons wishing to donate can contact Otalora at tel. 319-4259.
