|The Mystery Of The Missing Beach by depopson: 10:25pm On Aug 12, 2014|
s it funny or weird that more than 500 truckloads of white sand disappeared from one of the main beaches in Jamaica? Or is it just sad and worrying? Jamaican authorities have been investigating for over one year the disappearance of one of their beaches.
In July 2008 it was first discovered that more than 500 truckloads of sand were removed from a planned resort at Coral Springs, near Duncans in Trelawny. The main suspects at that time were the people in the tourism industry, on the island. Great sand for a private beach is a must-have asset. But how can you steal hundreds of tons of sand, where can you deposit it or how can you transport it on land and sea without someone noticing it?
The “murder scene” was the next spot for one of the greatest Jamaican business in the late years. The Felicitas Limited consortium, that includes 15 of the most successful Jamaican entrepreneurs, was planning to invest $8 billion in developing 36 six-star ultra luxury villas with spa, restaurant, amphitheater and marina. Now, the whole plan is on hold “until the 500 truckloads of sand are recovered”, as Frederick Moe – project manager says.
The authorities were overwhelmed. It was maybe the most complex Jamaican investigation. Not a single clue about who could be responsible for this environmental tragedy.
This will continue to remain one of the oddest mysteries in Jamaica.
