Associate of Late Michelle Anison Disputes Portrayal of Her Character

Michelle Anison

Are police any closer to cracking the murder case of Michelle Anison? The decomposing body of the British expat was discovered in her apartment on Perez Road, Ladyville last Friday; her vehicle and personal effects were missing. News Five understands that Anison’s wallet, with her bank cards and I.D. was discovered on a bus and the police were finally able to acquire an official death certificate for her. Anison was buried hours after her body was discovered, around five-thirty p.m. and four persons were detained for questioning. She was a volunteer through a U.K.-based agency that worked with the Liberty Foundation; enjoying her experience in Belize.  She relocated to Ladyville just over two years ago, leaving her two children and other relatives behind. She was a member of the support staff for the administration and was a mentor and guardian for the residents at Liberty Children’s Home.  Liberty’s Director and close friend of Anison, Agatha Valentine, is incensed about the suggestion that the fifty-six-year-old woman’s lifestyle may have led to her murder. She believes that Anison was targeted by someone she trusted.

“It is one of the things that really has me disheartened by the way everything is unfolding. How can a woman or how can anybody be the cause of their death. What I see, even on the news, is that everybody seems to be the moral police; we are all moral police in Belize. At the end of the day, she was a victim—a victim of a horrendous crime which is clearly indicating that we have a lot of cold-hearted psychopaths amongst us as a country. We should be focusing on that, not Michelle’s lifestyle or presumed lifestyle because we don’t know. So that is what I am going to say about that. Let’s focus on where the real issues are; on the people that need help because we have some serious psychopaths running wild in our country. We need to find who did this.  As a Liberty family, we really want to see that whoever did this is found and that we get some justice for Michelle. And we need to as a people stop victimizing victims; someone can’t be blamed for their own death. And it is done repeatedly and it needs to stop, especially women. Women are always the cause of what happened to them. Why? Why?”
