Police have confirmed the death of Karen Sue Brown, owner of Isla Bonita Gallery and Frame Shop, located at the Fairdale Plaza on Coconut Drive. The body of Brown was discovered inside her business around 12:30p.m. and police are ruling her death as suicide as they have confirmed the discovery of a note next to the body. People close to Karen mentioned to Ambergris Today that she had been depressed lately, complaining how the bad times were affecting her frame shop business. As San Pedro Police continue their investigations, Ambergris Today will keep up with updates.

That's the third suicide within my orbit of existence that's happened this month, the first one New Year's Eve.

End of year and long periods of stress ..... tough times for so many people.
It's too late for us to give a hug to Karen, but it's not too late for us to be a little kinder to others we see who are sad or lonely or having a difficult day.

RIP to all who found it just too hard to continue.

No one can know the despair that causes a person to take such drastic measures. We can only hope that her loved ones can eventually find peace with her actions. So tragic.

Newfoundlanders are the only people in heaven who want to go home.

Karen Sue had suffered from depressio for a long time. I'm so sorry that she couldn't find the help she needed and is now at rest.

It was tragic. I will be suggesting to the Transport department that any time an incident as this occurs, traffic be rerouted behind the distributor. The number of bicyclists, golf carts, taxis, and pedestrians standing around the area with police tape was astounding. Not to mention all of the tourists on golf carts who only saw "crime scene" tape and numerous police officers.

May she rest in peace.
