    Don’t you think this family has suffered enough? Why are you people drooling over the possibility of them being put through more anguish with criminal charges?

    I Agree this is going to be very interesting to see how this is played out.

    A CHILD IS DEAD remember if we as civilians driving down the road and hit a child or anybody and kill that individual the charge is involantary manslaughter or death by misadventure.


    At the end of the day dead is dead, sin is sin. And please remember the children are our future. R.I.P Little Grace God Bless your little soul.

    I too will follow this case as it will speak volumes of the Cayman Islands view of justice and the protection of children.

    As tragic as this is… it will be interesting to see how this death is classified… clearly no mal-intent was here, but a child has died.. is this involantary manslaughter? Death by misfortune, as is the case with a diving or snorkel accident? Will monitor this carefully…
