This is sad - I see that you have all been following this much more than I. I did not see the story about her swallowing a brooch, and now I am confused as well.
The final story made it sound more like a story of a lover's argument. (or some kind of relationship - hard to tell).
I never heard of a crew member getting romatantically involved with an islander before - pretty strange.
In any case, I have gotten to the point where I can't feel empathy for every thing that happens in paradise just because the victim has some kind of remote connection to a cruise ship. There are plenty of web sites that take every little slightly-cruise connected event and try to make it look like organized crime. I am just personally exhausted by the muckraking. I plan to just focus on ships in the future.
