ROSEAU, Dominica, Aug 20 2015 – Dominican reggae artiste Nelly Raffoul, who uses the stage name “Nelly Stharre”, was found dead here Wednesday evening.
Sources have confirmed to Caribbean News Service (CNS) that Stharre’s burnt remains were among two bodies discovered in the heights of Mahaut, a community in the parish of Saint Paul.
Stharre was married to a Jamaican national with whom she has children.
Stharre has been a fixture on the Jamaican musical landscape for more than 20 years. She lived in Kingston for several years but made frequent sojourns to the Nature Isle “to refresh, reconnect and share with her Jamaican husband and children the Caribbean’s ‘Garden of Eden.”
Police are carrying out investigations.
