Qatar teacher arrests were made this week against a pair of suspects after a missing woman from the UK was found dead. Web Pro News shares the chilling details this Wednesday, Oct. 16, as a 24-year-old teacher from Britain — who was currently working with middle school students in the Qatar state — was declared missing after last being seen with two mysterious men. Her body was found a short time later.
The Qatar teacher arrests first began following 24-year-old Lauren Patterson going missing this Oct. 12. While going for a night out at a nearby five star hotel’s club in Qatar, Patterson was last seen with two unknown man at her side. The next morning, James Grima — the middle school teacher’s boyfriend — realized his girlfriend never came back home, and went to the police.
Along with local officials, he took to Twitter and other social media sites to initiate a missing persons search. Patterson’s friends and family soon helped the images go viral on Facebook, but it wasn’t much longer before the devastating news was confirmed: the teacher had indeed been found, but Lauren was dead.
Qatar’s Interior Ministry, in a statement written in English on its official website, claimed, “The police has arrested the suspects of a European woman’s murder. The case has been referred to Public Prosecution to complete further judicial procedures applicable in this regard.”
At this point in time regarding the Qatar teacher arrests case, the Internior Ministry has yet to say anything more concerning the alleged murder. What is known, however, is that paired suspects have been taken into custody.
The two men that have been alleged as possible culprits are believed to be the two mysterious men last seen with Lauren Patterson. At this time, sadly there are few details that have been released on her death, how long the “trial” will take place, or whether the paired males in custody are even the right suspects. Hopefully, justice in this British woman’s murder will come to light soon, particularly for the 24-year-old teacher’s family, friends, and other loved ones.
Despite her tragic death, James took to Facebook to say the time he had with his girlfriend was wonderful:
The boyfriend wrote, “I was so happy that I had finally found someone that could my change my life so much, and in such a positive way too – Rest In Peace babe, I will always look up at the sky cause you always were the brightest star and always will be.”
