American commits suicide aboard Carnival DreamPOSTED: 07/18/13 12:11 PM
St. Maarten – A suicide aboard the Carnival Dream leaves one to ponder why so many people choose this cruise line to end their lives under tragic circumstances when they were supposed to be having a good time.
According to the police report, it was at approximately 10.00 a.m, the Central Police Dispatch sent a police patrol, Detectives and the Forensic Department, to investigate a case of suicide, which occurred in one of the cabins on board of the Carnival Dream Cruise Ship, which was docked at the A.C. Wathey Cruise Facility.
On board, the detectives spoke to the ships authorities and the ships doctor. The captain of the ship stated that shortly after leaving the port of St. Thomas on Tuesday with destination Sint Maarten he was informed about the incident.
The report further stated that the incident had taken place in one of the cabins on deck # 2 of the ship and the victim was a female U.S. citizen by the name of Christina Michelle Mullin age 40. Ironically, Mullin was not alone on the cruise; she was accompanied by other family members.
However, it was while her family members were out of the cabin that she took her own life by hanging herself. Dr. Mercuur, who was invited on board the ship examined the body and confirmed that the cause of death was by hanging.
The reason that prompted Mullin to take her own life remains unclear and now it’s up to the U.S. authorities to carry out the necessary investigations once the ship has docked at the nearest U.S. port.
