Tragedy struck last night October 31, 2019 when 20 year old Reggae Girlz was stabbed allegedly by her lover.
It is being rumoured that Tarania Clarke who was the recipient of a loaned cellphone from a suspect who is widely believed to be her lesbian lover. Details are sketchy, but reports reaching our news centre are that the two lovers had an altercation in half way tree over a cellphone loaned to the victim by the suspect described as her partner. A knife was brought into play and the Reggae Girl Tarania Clarke was stabbed in her chest. She was rushed to the hospital where she died.
Her attacker has been arrested and is in custody.
The news has left tongues wagging in disbelief. Culture and Sports Minister Olivia ‘Babsy’ Grange has expressed her sadness at the footballer’s killing. Grange knew Tarania personally.
Tarania Clarke scored two goals in Jamaica’s current campaign to qualify for World cup.
Ms. Tarania Clarke who was stabbed to death allegedly by her lesbian lover who is custody, was granted a scholarship to Daytona College in Florida, USA which she was to have taken up in January 2020 were she to have been alive. Clarke was Captain for her football team at Excelsior high school for three years before joining the Reggae Girlz.
Reports are that Tarania Clarke hails from Back Bush off Mountain View Avenue, Kingston, St.Andrew, Jamaica W.I. was supposed to be the “person to take her single mom out of poverty.” Back Bush is described as a ghetto Community where crime is the order of the day and squatting is rampant. We cannot comment on how Ms. Clarke’s family lived. Ironically she was not attacked violently in her own community.
We are saddened at her sudden passing. Gone too soon. She was a born leader and had great promise. Shameful!
