The corpse of a Canadian woman who fell in love with a much younger Cuban man and moved to the Caribbean hellhole has been found stuffed into a suitcase in a garbage dump near Varadero, the communist island’s capital of apartheid tourism.
This is no ordinary ruined “dream holiday”, the likes of which constantly appear in Canadian and British newspapers, but the ultimate horror story involving foreigners in Cuba.
And it may also be emblematic of the weird irrational love that Canadians tend to feel for Cuba, a love that blinds them to the awful reality of the place.
In this case, a love-struck middle-aged Canadian mother-of-two sold her house in Montreal and moved to Cuba in order to be with her younger sweetheart. How any sane person could decide to exchange life in Canada for life in Hell is beyond comprehension, but love does make people crazy sometimes.
The woman’s lover is under arrest, suspected of having killed her. Maybe he was hoping she’d take him to Canada, and killed her in a fit of anger when she showed up in Cuba saying she was there to stay.
It’s certainly a motive for murder, and you don’t have to be a detective to figure that out. You just have to be Cuban.
