Even after receiving a detailed email from the Nigerian husband of the Guyanese nurse, Lucinda Solomon-Lee, who reportedly died under mysterious circumstances in India, family members are still hopeful that their loved one is alive.
According to reports, Solomon-Lee’s family received news of her death when her husband contacted them by telephone on Sunday, informing them that she died “three days ago”.
According to the nurse’s mother, Morlyn Scipio, the woman migrated to India in December 2009 and got married last year to the Nigerian national. The family reportedly never formally met the man or knew his name.
“One of her friends who been to India with her brought some pictures with her and him and that is how we get to see him. We didn’t even get to see wedding pictures,” one relative said.
According to Scipio, following the initial phone call informing the family that Solomon-Lee had died, the man called again several times, but the family was unable to gather much information from what he was saying since they could not understand his accent.
Alana Holligan, the nurse’s sister, reported that she requested that the man provide his address so that they could communicate on Facebook.
Holligan said that she subsequently received a text message in which the man identified himself as Austine Molar. She said that using the name provided, she was able to locate him on the social network.
Scipio, the nurse’s mother, has since visited the Indian High Commission where she was advised to acquire any relevant information of her daughter that would assist in locating her or her husband. She should then forward the information to the Guyanese Ambassador to India, Jairam Ronald Gajraj.
Most interesting however, is the most recent information received via email by the husband of Soloman-Lee.
About 15:00 hours yesterday, a Facebook message was received by the nurse’s sister, Angelina, stating in detail what led up to the death of the woman.
The message stated that she had been hospitalized two months prior to her death in many hospitals for a certain operation.
“The first hospital is called MGM is a government hospital. The second one is called SAFI hospital, it’s a private hospital and that was where she had the operation. After the operation they could not follow her up properly on treatment then I took her to the last hospital called NAIR hospital where she passed on July 4th”.
The man indicated that the body is currently at a mortuary and an autopsy will be done. He promised to send the results of the autopsy to the family.
The man added that arrangements are being to have the burial in India since it “will be too expensive” for the body to be transported back to Guyana.
In concluding the email, the man promised to keep in touch with the family “both on phone and on email any time”.
Family members are hoping that with the information provided and with the assistance of the Indian High Commission, they will know what really happened.
