Around 5 p.m. yesterday Trudy May Nicola Lowe’s lifeless body was discovered in the bathroom of her Edey Village, Edge Cliff, St John home.
The 45-year-old, who lived alone in a two-bedroom wall house, was found by her mother Cynthia Lowe, who had last seen her alive on Friday May 18.
Although the police are treating Lowe’s death as “unnatural”, her uncle David Jimmy Shepherd suspects that no foul play was involved.
Lowe was suffering from epilepsy, a condition that affects the brain and causes frequent seizures.
“She was doing alright and thing but you never know because I know she was getting seizures,” Shepherd told Barbados TODAY.
Shepherd said he was home when his daughter called with the news that his niece had died, and he rushed to his grief-stricken sister’s nearby home to comfort her.
He described Lowe as a quiet and reserved person who did not socialize very often.
“She was always to herself,” he said, adding, “she would get the bus [to Bridgetown] and do what she had to do and come back”.
Police said they were investigating the circumstances surrounding Lowe’s death, and appealed to anyone with information that can assist with the probe to call the District ‘C’ Police Station at 416-8200/8201.
