Desiree Gibbon

Updated: Jun 8

26 year old Desiree was murdered in 2017 over Thanksgiving weekend and found about 20 minutes away from her grandmother’s hotel in Jamaica. Desiree spent almost every summer growing up at this very hotel so when she was found murdered not only were her parents devastated but they were also completely shocked. After taking a closer look at the circumstances, her mother is sure that the perpetrator is someone that knew her and lured her away.
