FTC director dies suddenly

Director of consumer protection at the Fair Trading Commission (FTC), Judy Maynard, is dead.

Maynard, 61, reportedly collapsed in the bathroom at the FTC’s Green Hill, St Michael headquarters sometime this morning. Shocked staffers subsequently sought assistance for her but when an ambulance arrived at the FTC the mother of two was unresponsive and later pronounced dead at the scene.

The Warrens Crescent, St Thomas resident was a diabetic but had no other history of illness. A post mortem is to be conducted to establish the cause of death.

Maynard’s sudden passing resulted in the temporary closure of the FTC’s office while distraught staffers received professional counselling services.

Minister of Industry, International Business, Commerce and Small Business Development, Donville inniss, later lauded the contribution which Maynard had made to the FTC and described the British-trained lawyer as having been a highly professional and invaluable asset at the commission.

Maynard leaves to mourn son Che, daughter Paula, mother May Maynard, five sisters and three brothers.

      Unless you are killed by an accident or some criminal act, there is no such thing as sudden death in adults. People die every day for various reasons, just that we never know the underlying issues.
      To politicize this is pure ignorance.

    What can the prine Minister or health minister do in this case . Stop being illerterate . We are to intelligent a people to keep spouting this nonsense . A lot of us these days are just eating properly or taking care of themselves health wise . We are owing more for hair , nails and such like but cheapening our lives by not going to the doctor . Not saying that this lady did it but this is our new way of living . The centurions are living long for they are still taking proper care of themselves . Let us open our eyes and see the issue for what it is .
