At a press conference on Monday, Domlec’s Manager Mr Colin Cover explained that Close had a good working relationship with the company and worked at least four times. “It is with great sadness that we here at Domlec would like to inform the public of the passing of a contractor who has become quite a friend to Domlec because he has visited and worked with us on at least three or four occasions over the past three years. Mr Jeff Close who works for Mann Diesel which is headquartered in Houston, passed while here in Dominica working for Domlec. Mr Close is an English man, he was age fifty-five (55) and he leaves behind him five (5) children aged twelve to nineteen years old (12 – 19) and a wife whom he had expected to meet later this week to go off on vacation with but unfortunately he passed apparently in his sleep on Friday night in his hotel room.”According to Mr Clover, Close appeared well when he completed his duty on Friday morning and the entire staff at Domlec are shocked to learn of his passing.“We here at Domlec especially the staff who worked with Jeff personally are shocked. He left work on Friday evening apparently healthy, expected to return to work on Saturday morning and when he did not show up at work then inquiries were made and he was found in his hotel room.”Mr Clover further stated that “there is no evidence presently of any foul play but the police are still investigating that matter and an autopsy will give the exact cause of death”.The manager also thanked the police department and the Fort Young Hotel “for their cooperation and the respect that they have shown for Jeff and the professional manner in which they have handled the whole situation.” He concluded by expressing his regret on the sudden death of Close, and extended sympathy to his family and to all persons who knew him.

  • Mother Wants Death Sentence for Daughter’s Killer

    first_imgThe premises of the Temple of Justice was a scene of mourning and weeping, after the jury of Criminal Court ‘A’ yesterday brought down a guilty verdict against Sylvester Tarpeh Davies, the man who killed his fiancée, Sianneh Tipayson, last November and folded her lifeless body into a blue barrel in an unfinished room in the home of her parents.The verdict came after Davies earlier informed the court that he was not willing to testify on his own behalf, lamenting, “The devil fooled me to kill my girlfriend and I don’t want to say anything about the killing.”He was accused of killing his 23 year-old fiancée, Sianneh on November 30, 2014, in their Paity Town Community, in Clara Town, Monrovia, after which he fled to Grand Cape Mount County where he was arrested on December 7 by officers of the Liberia National Police (LNP).Sianneh was a mother of two children and was four months pregnant when she was killed.Interestingly, at yesterday’s hearing, Davies, dressed in an orange prison jump suit, held his hand folded as he stood for over seven hours, while the jury was reminded by Judge Roosevelt Willie about the facts surrounding the case.He was later escorted back to his cell at the Monrovia Central Prison where he will await his sentence within four days, Friday, March 6.Immediately after the verdict, the victim’s mother, Mrs. Oretha Tipayson, tearfully told journalists outside the courtroom that her daughter would rest in peace, praising the jury for its unanimous verdict.Mrs. Tipayson, however, pleaded with the court to punish Davies by hanging.  ‘The verdict is not enough.  What I want to see is for Sylvester to be killed and not to get a long prison term,” Madam Tipayson stated in tears.According to her, this would serve as a deterrent to other men that would consider killing their fiancées. But Mrs. Tipayson was quick to recognize that the penalty does not exist under Liberian law.“We need to go back to our old law, because if we don’t go back, most of our women will be killed by men. They will say if we kill her, we will only go to jail for some time and afterwards the government will release us,” said the distressed Madam Tipayson.Mourning her daughter, Madam Tipayson said, “She was more than a daughter to me. She was everything that I had on this earth. She was my friend and my husband and the person whom I used to share my secrets with.“She was my oldest daughter and see how she was (horribly) murdered by this cruel man,” she added in agony. “My daughter will not rest; she will torment him until he is also dead.”Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
