Queens Woman Killed While Visiting Jamaica

A young woman from Queens, NY was found dead after only recently moving to Jamaica for a career in the hospitality and tourism industry.

26-year-old Desiree Gibbon’s bloodied body was found tossed between some bushes on the side of a local road in Anchovy, Jamaica on Sunday morning. Her throat had reportedly been slit.

Her aunt, Peggy Bruner, told the New York Post that Desiree never made enemies, so the death truly shocked her.

“It has to have been a complete stranger. Desiree had a heart of gold, everybody loved her.Everything hurts. It’s hard to breathe.”

Gibbon’s father owns a hotel in Jamaica, and she reportedly went there on October 20 on a three-month visa in hopes of landing a job in the resort industry.

The coroner’s office is currently conducting an autopsy to determine how she died. Meanwhile, her family has started a GoFundMe with hopes of shipping her body back to Queens for burial.

Truly a sad story for this young woman and her family. SMH.
