Earlier today, St Vincent and the Grenadines was thrown into a state of shock following the discovery of the body of 19 year old Shania Johnson of Biabou.
Shania was last seen and heard from on Friday as she ventured into Kingstown to collect her salary at the Treasury and to purchase items for her 10 month old baby. Shania’s mother, in an interview with ANN earlier this afternoon, expressed that Shania “was so cool, nothing troubled her and she never trouble anybody. She was just easy going and she loved to laugh.” [sic]
Shania worked with the YES program and was a part time teacher at the New Prospect (Simon) Primary School. One of her work colleagues at the school outlined that Shania was kind, intelligent and a hard worker. “She is easy to love, she love her son and she wanted to be a teacher…” the colleague expressed.
Shania’s mother explained that she has not slept or eaten properly since Friday as this has been such a difficult time for her, especially since she has the duty to babysit and take care of the young baby while Shania was at work. Shania was the sole breadwinner of the home.
She also added that on Friday, she was told that Shania got a ride with someone but she was unsure of who it was. She further added that Shania had no known enemies and that the baby’s father and Shania had a fairly good relationship despite not being together.
Shania’s body was found Sunday morning in Akers. In identifying the body this morning, her mother added that her neck appeared to have been broken, but this is yet to be confirmed and the extent of her injuries would be determined after an autopsy is performed.
