CruiseBruise.com has received a series of emails from a person who claims to be a family member. The emails, full of foul language, rantings, and psycho babble, are from a person who claims to have been very close to Elizabeth Galeana. The contents of the email are nothing short of bazaar. We will now post some of the comments, not to appease the visitor, but in an effort to assist other family members in identifying this visitor, who may be a danger to themself or others.
This Cruise Bruise visitor contradicts the statement by a Michigan PR firm that they did not know if it was suicide or an accident, saying the death was "clearly obvious . . . " (another specified cause of death.) In a subsequent email the content was less civil, and was signed with a threat: "if you have children i hope they die in the slowest miserable death possible while you f---ing watch . . . i would enjoy watching your misery. . . "
To further assist the family in identifying this person, the submitter posted via an internet service provider in Michigan, in all emails.
See Safecruise post for 8/17/2006: We were puzzled when the FBI announced that they were no longer involved in the case. They stated that there was no foul play yet they say they conducted no interviews and they still have not determined if it was an accident or suicide. Even, if it were an accident, the cruise line could be liable, especially if alcohol or safety problems were involved. Questions have also been raised by at least one media professional who was told by the FBI that even though the case was closed it would not be made available to the press, partly because Italian authorities were involved. Nothing can bring back Elizabeth and our prayers are with her family. However, the safety of future passengers can only be improved by thorough and complete investigations by our government officials. And it is the job of the Press to demand it.
