Default Death of a Liberty passenger

WSVN-TV - Passenger dies on cruise ship

According to the article, officials are unsure if this is a homicide or other cause at this point. A tragedy in any case

Homicides on cruise ships are very rare. However, a death on a cruise ship is a commonplace happening. With well over 200,000 people on cruise ships EACH week of the year. Someone dying out of over 200,000 people is all but expected. Cruise ships do have morgues. [they DON't use the food freezers]

Not to many details in the article. I can see the cause for concern. 36 years old is pretty young to be found unconscious in your cabin. Then later to die. I don't think the FBI will know of certain until after the autopsy. I feel badly for the family and friends of this lady. The unknown probably makes it worse. I hope it wasn't murder.

I think its sad that nothing more has been posted about this. My thoughts are with the family of the departed.

It is sad but the reason nothing more has been posted is because there has been no new information.

The last information released by the FBI was that it looked like natural causes.

I feel for the family and they have my sympathies.

Take care,
Mike
