Husband and wife found dead

Police are investigating the unnatural deaths of a husband and wife.

The body of 27-year-old Kimberley Lovell of Alleyne’s Land, Bayville, St Michael was found by a relative in her home with several fatal wounds just after 2:30 a.m. Sunday, police spokesman Acting Assistant Superintendent of Police David Welch confirmed.

Investigating officers later found the body of her husband, 46-year-old Derek Lovell, of the same address, hanging from a rafter in a shed in the yard of their home, the police public relations officer told Barbados TODAY.

    That is what happens when older men marry woman half their age. The cannot keep up with them and becomes extremely possessive. Men, think before you act

    This is a sad occasion not only for the family but the children having to face this gruesome action. This could have a psychological effect on the children psyche. Adults have to learn conflict resolution in resolving differences.

      Mark Fenty Emotional bankrupted , you mean a disturb mental state of mind cause by negative thoughts. If you understand the human psyche, then you would have a keen knowledge as to human behaviour. Stop hiding behind excuses and accept the reality of life. All of the situation confronting mankind, they created it. Regarding irretrievable differences , if people find it difficult to resolve differences cause by being self- centered and greed , then move on. But the problem is Mark, some people live in denial and never admit they have a serious problem not until it reach a gruesome stage.

      That is nonesense because there is no such thing as a categorical rule or a blueprint for understanding the pathology of the human psyche. A lot of people who commit these sort acts do without premeditation, so I don’t buying to the notion that a deranged mind is the motivating factor behind this killing. So let me ask you this question then: every person who commits an unlawful killing does so from the standpoint of irrationality right? And because a murder like this one defiles our human understanding, it doesn’t mean that the prepetrator was operating from the standpoint of insanity.

      Mark Fenty Again like most people, Mark you are admitting to your gross ignorance of the cause of human behaviour. You see Mark, the carnal mind can never comprehend human actions. Thoughts are a precursor to action. You don’t get up a morning and kill or do harm to others. Human beings are motivated by wisdom unlike animals that act by instinctive wisdom. If you feed the mind negative or positive thoughts { thinking} it is reflective in the kind of behaviour you produce. Mark, there is a blueprint for understanding the pathology of the human psyche. If you deny this then you are facing trouble. Action such as murder, violence, hatred, malice , racism can be averted my BRO , since these are all products of the human mind at psyche.

      There is no such this as a carnal mind that is religious hogwash brother. Jeffrey Dahmer got up in the morning and killed without empathy for his fellow human because of his psychopathy. There is new a technology which is done through the MRI scanning of the human brain which shows the existence of psychopath tendency in people like Jeffrey Dahmer sir.

      Mark Fenty you are heading a dangerous road. The carnal mind thinks of destroying and look at the effects and not the root cause of human behaviour. The spiritual mind helps us to comprehend human action and avoid the calamities of life. The spiritual mind helps us distinguish between evil and good. So Bro I respectfully differed from your erroneous point, of religious hogwash .

      Mark Fenty Thread extremely careful in your interpretation of the Bible.Unless you understand the context in which the Prophet Isaiah is speaking, then you like others, using the Bible to justify action, can be mislead. Isaiah is merely telling the people that God is in control of everything and is the Creator. Hence, evil don’t have to befall us. The prophet is merely sho that man is not in control.

My friend everything that is created has a purpose; the moon supplies light at night and the sun by day. And what does and doesn’t are diametrically opposed to each other sir! Listen! He who is without sin cast the first stone; Jesus lamented to the multitude who were about to stone the woman. And let me sum by saying this: you better consider your words, ” evil don’t have to befall us.”

He that is without sin cast the first stone a call for self-examination. You are correct creation has a purpose. When this purpose is discovered there is a greater appreciation for life and our surroundings. We treat to life different and seek to resolve differences.

      Hunte Omar, I really admire your optimism regarding life, but a lot of what you’re preaching is rooted in idealism rather than realism, because the very idea of people working collectively to better our human conditions, undermines everything the Bible stands to represent and wars against the very purpose of Jesus’ coming.

You don’t have to be attending a church to be a christian. The other thing I need to remind you of, the religious fanatics. So your confusion is with the religious fanatics seeking to betray others for their personal gain.

      Hunte Omar, I’ve been a Christian for 22 years and have a pretty good understanding as to what Christianity does and doesn’t entail sir. Lol and what’s the difference between a Christian and a church? The building or the doctrine? And the concept of Church from the standpoint of anyone whom has attended church, entials the congregation and not the building in of itself. And you don’t have to go to church to be a Christian and why not?

      Mark Fenty I am a realist not idealistic. The world isn’t started yesterday. They are older folks living a very discipline life with success . From all indication , you seem to miss the point of Jesus coming. Until Christ comes, people are admonished to live at peace with each other, to love and respect each other. It is by turning a way from God and His standards, and surrendering to the evil ways of Satan ,the Devil , mankind is being confronted with the social ills of this world. Simply put, the world is in the hands of the Devil. Jesus coming therefore is to destroy the Devil and give us a chance to live the way God intended.

      If Jesus as you contend left us a legacy in achieving the unification of the human race, what purpose would it have made upon His return to earth, if we as a human species achieved that realization? That doesn’t make sense to me at all, because had we achieved peace and tranquility within the human species, Jesus purpose and return would have been to no avail.

      Mark Fenty Mankind has failed and missed the mark. Satan the devil , the God of this system of things is causing turmoil and division. Christ coming is to deliver the human race from the grip of Satan and to make this world a better place. All of the pain , human suffering, poverty, the violence, crime, hatred , racism and the forces of evil that divide us, would be destroyed.Christ left a legacy of unification, are people using it. Oh no! So Christ has to return cause mankind having assert independence from God, is only causing destruction.

    Maria are you for real? People of all ages kill each other. If age was the reason for this type of domestic violence how come the thousands of Bajan women in their 40s and 50s who have men in their late teens and 20s don’t kill them? A lot of these women are possessive. We all heard stories of some of these older women turning up at the work place of the young men and getting on like they own the men. And don’t tell me these women keeping up with the young studs. Not all are but yet there is no murder happening with these relationships. So it can’t be that it’s about the age of the people involved that makes them murder the other. It is obviously a more complicated issue.

    What we as young or old adults need to really do is keep out of people business we don’t know what happened you can’t just up and assume for only God knows what happen and God and God alone will be the one to judge him when the day comes for example if Mary say he probably kill her because he mussy hear piece of information from some malicious person , also sit and observe what was happening then told himself Yuh know what it is true he might assume and two two’s he kill she we never know what happen but it all comes a time when we should look at another option by just walking away but who am I to say our lives is based on how we live it a noone should be judge for it but ourselves.

    I have friends married to older men and yes they are extremely possessive. Most of these men are very well off that is why in most cases they were able to win over the ladies. The average poor raky bajan man would not stand a chance. To sit and think this does not happen in Bim is to to be living under a very large boulder not even a rock. True these men won’t kill the women but some can be verbally and physically abusive. Others are okay but just a tad overly possessive . And then there is the small fraction who can appreciate a woman’s needs and worth. If you want the fine windows dressing you must be able to afford it.

      According to you then,the young women only looking for money or a ring and that is when the trouble starts.
      I have noticed that couples live together as girlfriends and boyfriends for years,but the moment the woman gets the ring,you hear ” the woman changed ” .
      Suddenly the wife gets possessive,…the same things the husband was doing as boyfriend the wife want he to stop and in two twos the marriage brek up.
      Women need to go and look fa wuk and stop thinking that only they have needs and worth….mona lisa tell the women to wuk fa what they want and stop looking at men as ATMs…you sound like a woman who would sell to anybody that got money though…..a perfect example of a woman to keep far from.

They create their own stories and try to fit them in like experts at whatever is the subject matter; however, every one is entitled to an opinion, even if it is not absolitely correct.
