Mystery of Brit pensioner found tied up in pool of blood inside Caribbean home

The bodies of a British pensioner and her dog were found in a Caribbean bloodbath in their home on Saturday morning, police have discovered.

Diana Theodore, 72, was bound and in a pool of blood with severe head wounds, with her body found underneath her bed at her home on the Caribbean island of St Lucia.

A friend who lived with Diana at her Choiseul home had reported her missing after an uncharacteristic disappearance, launching cops and neighbours alike into action mode as they desperately searched for the OAP.

One neighbour said: "He came to us and said he had not seen her, so we all went in search of her but did not find her.

"We all went looking to try to find her as she is always at home. It is not like her not to be seen in this small village.

"She was friendly and has been living in Morne Sion for many years now."

Theodore had been a resident of the island for over 30 years after moving there from the UK, and has spent her time as a community activist campaigning for the preservation of St Lucia's natural and cultural heritage.

A spokesperson for the St Lucia National Trust (SLNT) said she "will be sorely missed".

They said: "Diana was a passionate and vocal advocate for Saint Lucia's natural and cultural heritage.

"She was a long-term member of the Trust who also served on Council and regularly contributed her ideas, concerns, and advice in areas of conservation and community interest."

Another resident of the neighbourhood recalled the positive impact Theodore had on the community.

"She was a very nice person, every time you see her, she would be smiling, her teeth always out," they said.

"She's such a nice lady for her to have been treated that way.

"Everybody is just in shock and very sad because she is such a nice lady and did not deserve this at all. Things like that don't occur in Choiseul."

Theodore reportedly leaves behind a daughter, who works as a university lecturer in the UK.
