We’re very sorry!
While, for the past week, I have continued to post about boat-related topics, the only subject on the minds of everyone in Grenada has been the whereabouts of Linnea Veinotte. After heading out for a jog with her dog on the morning of December 6th, Linnea went missing, sparking a huge island-wide search by both police and civilians. The investigation lead the police to search for a young man, and after he surrendered himself to the authorities, information was apparently made available which helped them to locate Linnea’s body. Needless to say, this is hugely disturbing to all of us.
While we never met Linnea or her children, her husband Matt was a manager at one of the local boat chandleries, and was always extremely helpful and friendly towards us. I can’t even imagine what he and the kids are going through right now! I know that senseless tragedies occur on a daily basis around the world, but it’s not until they hit close to home that most of us really stop to take notice. Grenada is, by and large, such a friendly and safe island that it’s hard for most of us to believe that a crime like this could take place here. Our most sincere condolences go out to the Veinotte family, and to all of Linnea’s friends.
