My young cousin Diana Booth was gunned down in the rural parish of St. Mary,Fort George, Jamaica. In a senseless robbery. She leaves behind 3 children. One teen and two younger children. We are now raising funds to assist with this sudden tragedy.

My name is Carlie Wilson of Toronto, Canada. I am of direct Jamaican Heritage. On the date of February 25th 2017 I received a bone chilling text that my cousin, Diana Booth, was killed senselessly on her way to work in a taxi along with the  driver, Robert Brown. This happened in the small district of Fort George, Annotto Bay St. Mary, Jamaica. It was said that the motive of the killings was a robbery that my cousin got caught in between and unfortunately for the driver he was the target. My cousin is a young lady of 34 years that has now left behind 3 children who are in deep sorrow and mourning because of the sudden death of their mother. Diana Booth has left behind one sixteen year old teenage girl and two younger boys ages 10 and 5. They are all deeply saddened at the tragic death of their mother. In additon to this the mother of the deceased, Patsy Espeut is experiencing profound sorrow and grief due to the lost of her daughter. The family is also experiencing financial difficulty and strife at this time, because of the fact that Patsy Espeut is unemployed and has a young child of her own and is now responsible for her orphaned grandchildren. Due to these unforseen and tragic circumstances, our family has taken the responsibility to create a fundraiser to assist in  the financial start up towards the care of the orphaned children. We would appreciate your assistance in this endeavour, as this is a very emotional and trying time for our family both in Jamaica and abroad. Thank you
