Clear Facts

  • A retired British couple, David and Rosaline Foster, were found dead on a Caribbean beach in Grenada.
  • Local reports suggest the couple may have drowned after David Foster encountered difficulty in the water and his wife attempted to rescue him.
  • Their deaths bring the number of tourists who have died in Grenada this year to four.

A tragic incident unfolded on the shores of the Caribbean, where a retired British couple was found dead. The couple, identified as David Foster, 76, and Rosaline Foster, 77, were discovered on L’Esterre Paradise Beach on the island of Carriacou, according to a statement by the Royal Grenada Police Force.

Carriacou is a seven-mile-long island, part of the Grenadine Islands, renowned for its crystal-clear waters, sandy beaches, and pristine coral reefs.

“Police say they found David Foster lying on the sand, and say he was pronounced dead at the scene by a medical doctor.” His wife, Rosaline, was rushed to Princess Royal Hospital, where she too was pronounced dead.

Local media, citing police, have reported that the couple may have drowned. However, the exact circumstances leading up to their deaths remain a mystery.

Cpl. Ardell Lewis stated that David Foster may have suffered a heart attack while in the sea and his wife went in to help him, only to get into difficulty herself. “The basic facts seem to suggest the man may have suffered a heart attack and the lady may have gone to his assistance, and she probably would have drowned,” Lewis said.

An autopsy is currently being conducted to determine the cause of death and police say an investigation is ongoing.

The Fosters’ deaths bring the number of tourists who have died in Grenada so far this year to four.

Last month, a Virginia couple were attacked and killed by a group of escaped prisoners who boarded their catamaran yacht before tossing the victims overboard. Ralph Hendry and Kathy Brandel had reportedly sold their possessions to buy and live on their yacht, called “Simplicity,” which was left in tatters and covered in blood.

Three men have been charged with murder, among other charges. Meanwhile, earlier this week, a woman on a cruise liner bound for the Bahamas was found dead in her cabin and police say they later found cocaine in her living quarters.

    How sad for the couple on the beach. The only comforting thing I can say is: at least they seemed to have died together.
    The other couple that were killed by escaped prisoners, geeeeeeeeeeeez, they sell everything so they can live out the rest of their
    lives on a catamaran. Not right. Hope they have capital punishment in Grenada.

    Unsettling that only part of the facts are revealed. The woman on the yacht was raped. The “drowned” couple? I’d get a real coroner out of country to do the autopsy. More reasons to stay home and avoid dangerous locations or ships.

    ELEANORRIGBY, that’s the Beatles song right? Yes they do need, but probably don’t have, the Death Penalty on Granada.
