Grenada: Assailant Kills U.S. Tourist

“A machete-wielding man attacked an American tourist couple as they walked along a remote beach on Grenada, killing the woman, the police said Tuesday. The woman, Jessica Lewis Colker, 39, of Atlanta, was found dead after her husband ran to get help after the attack, which occurred around noon Sunday, said Sylvan McIntyre, an assistant superintendent with the Royal Grenada Police Force. A suspect is in custody. The motive for the attack is unknown. Ms. Colker’s husband, Brian Van Melito, told the police that he fought with the suspect, then managed to get away and call for help. The police and local residents found Ms. Colker’s body later in the woods. An autopsy found that she died of an extensive skull fracture and asphyxia.”
