A Mississauga family wants answers after 22-year-old Horace ”Odaine” Lumley was found dead three days ago at a Cuban hotel.
Lumley, who was born in Jamaica and moved to Mississauga, left for Cuba for what his family calls his ”first real vacation” a week ago Friday.
He went to Varadero Beach with some friends.
The last time they saw Lumley was Wednesday when he was with a young woman he’d met at the resort.
When they returned, he’d fallen from the third floor balcony.
At first the family thought it was an accident, now they’re not so sure.
While the Canadian embassy has been working with Cuban police, the young man’s family is wondering about the whereabouts of that young woman and why Lumley’s cell phone SIM card had apparently been cleared when it was returned.
A graduate of the Woodlands Secondary School, Horace Lumley was supposed to go into an electrical engineering course at Humber College next month.
