VIDEO: Tears flow at Burger King after Nile Brown decomposing body was found in a barrel in St Thomas
Tears flowed as employees of the Burger King outlet in Cross Roads gathered on Monday morning to mourn the loss of their colleague, 23-year-old Nile Brown, whose decomposing body was found in a barrel in St Thomas over the weekend.
Brown was reported missing on Friday, after she failed to turn up for work and, later when checks were made at her residence in Denham Town, she and a blue barrel that she kept inside her home were no where to be found.
When Loop News visited the Burger King outlet on Monday morning, a devotion was being held in honour of the deceased woman. Opposition Spokeperson on Youth, Lisa Hanna was also at the prayer service and helped in consoling Brown’s coworkers, who cried openly.
General Manager of local Burger King operator Restaurant Associates Limited, Valda Ormsby told Loop News that Brown was a very punctual worker. She said Brown would call if for any reason she would be turning up late. She said that this was what aroused the suspicion of colleagues when two days had passed and they had not heard from her.
Brown’s coworker and friend, Moiesha said she last saw her on Wednesday and they had lunch together. She remembered them joking about how they would become soldiers, before dismissing the suggestion because both are afraid of frogs.
She recalled that they had gone to get hot dogs and, while returning, Brown’s hot dog fell and they laughed about it, before sharing the other one.
