THE family of missing Jamaican nurse Kerran Baker has been experiencing a whirlwind of emotions since last Tuesday when The Royal Cayman Islands Police Service classified her disappearance last year a homicide.

The Cayman Compass last week reported the updated status of the missing Jamaican nurse, quoting a statement issued by the police there.

According to the Cayman Compass, the police came to the conclusion that Baker was murdered based on the circumstances surrounding her disappearance last July and evidence unearthed by investigators.

Reacting to the news, Baker’s stepfather Wilmot Anthony told the Observer, with despair in his voice, that on the one hand the family feels that the status would lead to the arrest of the main suspect.
But on the other hand, he said that the declaration confirmed the family’s worst nightmare: That their loved one will not be returning.
