Falmouth mother drowns at Half Moon Bay Beach

May 29, 2018
Undertakers from Lyn's Funeral Home removing the body of Karen Clarke from the Half Moon Bay Beach in Falmouth, Trelawny.

A Trelawny family was plunged into mourning after their family member, Tasheika Clarke, died.

"She has been acting strange in recent times," a relative told WESTERN STAR.

The relative said Clarke walked out of her house, which is located at Draggy Lane in Falmouth, without telling anybody where she was going.

"The next thing I heard [was] that she drowned," the relative said.

Clarke's body was taken from the sea at Half Moon Bay Beach in Falmouth at around 3 p.m. 

"I saw her come along the beach and removed her clothes. I thought she was going for a swim. The next thing I saw was she walking out into the sea until she went under," a fisherman said.



The victim's name was incorrectly reported as Karen Clarke in an earlier version of this story. In addition, the comments in the story were made by another female relative and not Nichola Anderson.

We regret the errors.
