Murder not in Deckers car park

| 13/10/2008

(CNS): The car park from where Estella Scott-Roberts appears to have been abducted before she was murdered was not part of Deckers restaurant, owner Markus Mueri has said. Mueri told CNS that he has come under a lot of criticism for the fact that the car park was not well lit, but he says that they do not own the area where it appears the abduction took place.

Their own car park, which is adjacent to the crime scene, is well lit and in fact that night there was a mini golf tournament taking place and there were lots of people around.

“People like to come here because they are comfortable.We are a family restaurant and Estella chose to have her birthday here because of the friendly atmosphere. We don’t have fights,” said Mueri, who said he talked to Estella that night and saw her leave.

“The most important thing is that they find the person who did this. It could have happened anywhere,” he said. Mueri also said that there has been some speculation that this was reminiscent of another murder in which the body was burned. There are false rumours that the victim in this case was also abducted from Deckers car park, said Mueri.

“That is not true,” he said. “The other gentleman came here between 5:00 and 5:30 that night for some beverages and left between 6:00 and 6:30 and went somewhere else.”

Other people speculating on what happened have noted that in violent deaths of women the husband is always the first suspect. In this case, Scott-Roberts’ husband has been categorically ruled out as a suspect by police.

    This heinous crime has shattered the innocence of these islands, to the core. This is the result of a lack of effective Justice, that is contributing to the continued decay of our ‘Moral society’. The next step will be ‘Vigilante Justice’, when our society no longer has anymore faith in the ‘system’ to either deter or protect us from crime.

    Someone out there knows something …. this island is too small to hide this. Let’s help the authorities find this SOB, and make an example of him for ALL to see, lest we end up living in the ‘Wild West’.

    This horrible event has ripped our hearts out. Ihope that her death is not in vain and

    something significantly positive will come from all this so that she can be honoured

    for the great community minded person she was.
