I am the mn sister and feel for tim his partner of 20 years. We are desperately trying to put him to rest. Trots father is not willing to help. If there os anyone on the island that can help tim pull some financial resources es to have a proper buroel it would ne a great honor to troy. Im trying to pull resources together to get down there and honor him. Hos struggles left him in a finacoal struggle. Tim has decided that burying him at sea would be his wish. He loved the ocean. Im not a person to normally asl for su h help, bit in this situation help is needed
He had his issues but did not deserve a violent death. Any help would ne an honor. Tom is overwhelmed with dealing with the system and is heart broken.

greetings
most hospitals will cremate indigents/ones with no insurance for free or for a small fee...you just have to prove that you are unable to handle the cost...since troy's wishes were to be at sea, then this would be no problem...the tim could get a nice container, maybe one of troy's favorites from home (remains from hospital are in a sealed plastic container with ashes in a baggy type thing) for the homegoing...i would have the tim go talk to the proper authorities at the hospital to see if this can be done...then ones could gather on the beach/cliffs at no cost for a small memorial service with candles (each participant bringing their own candle and a flower)...maybe at sunrise/sunset...ones could say what they wanted about troy and end with a small reception/homegoing party (with everyone contributing food and beverages) at the beach or venue of choice...this would/could be a beautiful thing with little cost entailed...and something i think troy would like...
i will miss the funny troy and meditate that all have peace and that the perpetrators of this horrendous crime be caught and if not caught, that their brains burn from the inside out with guilt...it is a true tragedy...i have been quite speechless for days.
blessings to you and your family and the tim...

My sincerest condolences to you.

Query, though ... do we have a crematorium on STX? My understanding was that bodies had to be flown to Puerto Rico for cremation, thus increasing the cost.

In addition, all suspicious deaths must be autopsied, and the ME has a crazy-ass backlog. There was a kerfluffel some years ago when Judge D'Eramo committed suicide and got bumped to the front of the list because of questions surrounding his death at the beginning of a murder trial. Many people who had been on the waiting list for months were very upset at what they saw as discriminatory behavior on the part of the ME.

Iris...There is no crematorium on St Croix. Bodies are flown to PR for cremation.

ditto, PR for cremation. My brother's girlfriend just passed a couple months ago. There was some delay even in getting her body there, I think it was weather related.

My husband was cremated. All told it was just over $2k by the time we got it back from PR. Did take a while.
