Relationship Violence: Acid Attack


I was informed by Professor Jarrett that there was a chemical attack in Clarendon and that a woman was killed and a child /children may be affected.

So sad.  What a tragedy! Why are we so cruel?. When a partner sees any form of violence in a relationship … leave that  criminal. It will only get worse.  It is like a cancer … it kills any relationship  …  Stop hoping for the best. It never gets better. Trust me.


We have learned since that it was an acid attack and that the couple were experiencing domestic problems.  The mother of  the  female now dead said ” I tried to call my daughter … prior to that my daughter expressed her fear as to what her partner may do … I spoke to my daughter’s partner and told him to leave the relationship for a better woman as he accused my daughter of Infidelity (giving him bun).”

“We need to talk things over and get a mediator to help us settle our differences.”
