American tourist who died at resort’s pool bar was not a drowning victim, post-mortem examination concludes


REAL NEWS: The post-mortem exam on the body of an American tourist who died here in April has been concluded.

His cause of death was cerebral edema and cardiomegaly – and not the direct result of drowning, as had been initially suspected.

Dr. Petra Miller Nanton performed the autopsy on Roy Vicich’s body last week and a death certificate was later issued.

The police were investigating the circumstances under which Vicich, a tourist from Alabama, USA, died on Sunday, April 23, at about 6 p.m.

Reports say the 64-year-old man had been at the pool bar when he suddenly became unresponsive.

Despite swift efforts by other guests and CPR-trained personnel to revive him, Vicich succumbed.

He was pronounced dead by the district doctor, who arrived on the scene at 7:58 p.m.

Reportedly Vicich suffered from hypertension, diabetes and kidney disease.

He had been vacationing here with his wife.

Meanwhile, a post-mortem examination on the body of a woman who died suddenly has concluded that her death was the result of an enlarged heart due to high blood pressure.

The 48-year-old woman was a St. Martin national with Antigua and Barbuda citizenship.

    • There are huge elephants sitting at the casualty department that neglected to administer care to the 49 year old lady who is Linda Kerr, deceased who was born in St. Martin and lived in Antigua lawfully as a citizen of this country up until her death. On that faithful day she was referred to the hospital for urgent care as a Dyallsis out patient, taken to the casualty department and was identified to the nurse at around 1:30pm on the 23rd March 2023. Linda complained of feeling unwell and was refused care, her sister and daughter pled with the nurses on duty to give some consideration as her situation was unusual and that they did not want the worse to happen. There was no disorderly conduct by the family members but only a consistent plea for the urgent care. Doctors called ahead to ensure Linda Kerr would have given the treatment she is entitled to. She did not get a care from the nurses on duty. Infact they were met with disdainful reproach and wilful neglect that day. The minutes and hours continued with neglect and no medical attention despite the many pleas. One of the nurses on duty had the gall OF WICKEDNESS and BITTERNESS to reply to Glenda’s sister that, “today you go learn how up ya work”. Antigua the things you hear about our hospital attendants are surprisingly true. The hours past, up until 5pm that day Linda was not allowed to get urgent care as persons went in one after the other to see the doctor. The nurse on the outside wrote in her assessment that Linda’s situation was not urgent.” At around 7:15 the nurses were rushing with the doctors trying to get Linda Kerr to the ICU, she did not make it out of casualty, the doctors labored trying to resuscitate her, all efforts failed and Lind Kerr was coded. Died in the hands of her husband, with daughter crying for over one half our and not been comforted to this day. The elephant need to be slayed, was her death really a result of what the autopsy revealed, or was it from willful and deliberate refusal of nurses on duty to administer the urgent care and medical protocols that could have saved Linda’s life. Person receiving urgent care for high blood pressure and enlarged hearts are living among us today, yet see what happened to Linda. Up until now the family have not received an official autopsy report, yet we see something referencing Linda’s autopsy in this news media. A letter was written to the authorities to truly look into the complaints summarized above, to date no acknowledgement or condolences have been expressed. Linda Kerr died a Martyr at SLBMC and those who neglected to serve has not been disciplined. Our Lord Jesus Christ will Direct the family concerning the next steps as we continue to mourn her passing. LORD HELP US

      • So so sorry to hear about your loss Hugh, my sincere condolences to you, your family and friends at this very difficult time.

        I hope and pray that you and your family get the answers to Linda’s passing, and that the autopsy report is forthcoming without any further delays.

      • Sorry to hear of your loss. Recently visited Antigua and I must say it’s a lawless country where international best practices are ignored and governance is poor. The Birds so many worship destroyed Antigua and each leader since then…It does not look bright for Antigua, sorry!

      • My condolences to you and your family. It is so unfortunate. As I read this comment I felt your pain deeply to my core. I’m in tears as I type this. I pray you all find solace in God’s arms and I hope you get justice for Linda, may her soul rest in eternal peace 💐💐💐💐💐💐💐💐💐💐💐💐💐💐💐💐💐💐💐💐💐

      • Ya done know ya nah see he fan girl get the top up so she can come on every post and talk about she crush🤣🤣🤣

        • Please accept my apologies @ Ah Gaston, as an ardent GRAMMARIAN and lover of ETYMOLOGY, I think I’m addicted to ANR threads – MI SORRY AGAIN! 😄😄😄

          • Who the cap fit mek them wear it.
            A hit dog will holla
            Throw a stone in a pig pen and the hit pig will squeal
            I was not talking to you but like fly🪰 on shat💩 you see the name Gaston Browne and you just had to reply. It really must be an addiction. And yes ah Gaston Browne fault!!

          • Remember @ Ah Gaston Fault, A good word is much betta dan a wink fo a bline horse … work that one out, if you can?! 😖

    • @Brixtonian: yep, both ❤️ and 🧠 injuries are common in the you know what recipients. Only certain types of autopsies can determine the presence of the spikes.
      Thanks to Dr.Arne Burkhardt and Dr.Ryan Cole for proving that which will continue to be hidden.

      • Two eminent physicians that I regularly follow @ Sugarapple, better than listening to the twaddle and double speak from our own Molwyn ‘AstraZeneca’ Joseph.

        We’re on the right side of history boss, keep delivering the facts, figures and data … keep up the good work. Again, much respect 👍

  1. Lets all say it together. THE mRNA vaccines which were forced on the majority of the world’s population are KILLING and Maiming PEOPLE!

    No Mercy – No Amnesty

    Everyone complicit should be put on trial even the witch that stuck the needle in.

    • ER let’s face it, they were people whose diet wasn’t what it should be, had given up on enough exercise and learnt too late what green food is.

      • Oh, have you seen the autopsy report then David?

        How heartless! My word, show some compassion at this difficult time for both families …

  2. Brix I’m thinking what you’re thinking but let’s give them a break…just for today

  3. Experimenting on people kill lives! Many were fooled, but now they Know the facts about the vax .Some start to collapse

  4. Look, they will never admit to vac injuries. Lots of people are compromised and any admittance here would be a preview to Nuremberg.
    Antigua is no different from the rest of the world.
    Ask Gaston Browne, who is in charge of vital statistics to release the death count for 2020 thru 2022 and let the nation decide. I am willing to bet that our death rate has doubled in the last two years.

  5. The evidence is there on that man’s face that he took the poison. Stop covering up the cause of death.

  6. I worked at the Hospital for a year and a half. While many of the nurses are dedicated and excellent they were also some bad eggs. Unfortunately in our exuberance to blame government ( specifically Cabinet) for everything, we ignore the bad attitude and performance of the nurses until it personally affects us. You try to discipline one nurse and the whole body would want to strike. And the whole of Antigua would be on their side. We don’t want to admit this because does not fit into our agenda of bashing Gaston and Molwyn but I guess the tune will be different the next time one of our family members is the victim.

    • I hear what you are saying @ Aloenso, but surely you do realise that Molwyn Joseph still wants the BANNED AstraZeneca vaccine (from the likes of UK and Denmark) injected into Antiguans?

      So to abricate this particular Minister from any responsibility in the SUFFERING, WELFARE and FUNDING is akin to you walking around with your ears covered, your mouth closed and your eyes firmly shut!

      However, I do respect your viewpoint.

  7. This sounds like how my friend died in December, came into the hospital told them she was sent to have a blood clot removed from her leg, they say they did not see anything, gave her two injections and sent her home. The next day she collapsed was rushed back to the hospital they still did not see anything by 9 she dead. I tell people all the time, if me a dead left me a ma yard mek me dead don’t take me up there.

  8. Two people died suddenly. My sincerest condolences to the family and friends of both of the deceased.

    One had hypertension, diabetes and kidney disease.

    The other, as reported in another post above, was a dialysis patient, so obvious serious kidney issues.

    Yet multiple people on here bawling bout vaccine! Apparently prior to the Covid vaccine being given, everyone lived until 900 years old like Methusala, nobody had hypertension, diabetes, heart disease, or other lifestyle diseases that might have caused early or sudden deaths.

    • However @ Sick, many of us recall that when anyone who died, this government kept highlighting that it was because they were NOT vaccinated.

      We were vilified, and yet now that vaccinated deaths are now outnumbering the UNVACCINATED (and these figures aren’t being released) the government and pharmaceutical companies have gone strangely quiet … get your head out of the sand, ask yourself why?

      I respect your choice to keep taking these trial vaccines, and your point of view though.

  9. @Sick a Aryu, obviously, you’re not aware the mRNA jabs exacerbates many of the pre-existing conditions that people has/had. TURBO cancer is the term given to the cancers that were remission, and the newly found cancers, due to of accelerated speeds these cancers have grown and spread after the💉. The jabs are also known to cause diabetes, hypertension and acute kidney failure. The jabs CANNOT be ruled out as the cause or a contributing factor of any deaths unless, a specific type of autopsy is done or, the deceased was un- jabbed.
    I’m quite sure that, this type of autopsy is NOT done in Antigua.
