Hyacinth Wright, also known as “Miss Little,” the 76-year old wife of former Mayor of Falmouth, the late Joseph Wright, is dead.
Unofficial reports are that she was found this evening on Trelawny Street.
According to police reports, the elderly woman, who was affectionately called Miss Little, was found about 4:30pm lying at the back of the building along Trelawny Street where she sells craft items.
The police have not established a motive for the killing.The senior citizen became a widow in October 2013 after the death of her husband, a day after he was recognised by the Trelawny Parish Council for his 22 years of service in politics.
At the time, he was one of the country’s longest serving mayors.
In June 2014, Miss Little was featured in the the Gleaner, surrounding a controversial story about her being being evicted from her home.
Miss Little’s death came less than a day after a taxi driver was shot and killed last night on Seaboard Street in Falmouth.
