Family of a young Guyanese nurse who died suddenly in India seek answers

shot0002After receiving confirmation from the Indian High Commission in Georgetown of the death of Nurse Lucinda Solomon-Lee in India, her family is looking for some closure.

Morlyn Scipio mother of the nurse said she feels there is something suspicious about her daughter’s sudden demise. The woman told this Newscast that two weeks before the nurse’s death her husband made contact with her father in the United States requesting 500,000 US dollars.

The woman said her daughter rarely made contact with her family in Guyana since she migrated to India in 2009. Scipio said what was more strange to the family is that they were unaware the young lady was married to a Nigerian National.

Scipio is hoping for the intervention of Guyana’s High Commissioner to India Ronald Gajraj so the family can get more details regarding the circumstances surrounding her death and if foul play was suspected.

The family is hoping to bring the woman’s remains back to Guyana but that will cost about two million dollars. The woman is hoping for Government help to bring some relief to the family and hope that if there is any foul play suspected, justice would be served. 37-year-old Lee reportedly passed away on July 4th in India.

According to her relatives, her husband promised to send the results of the autopsy to the family.
