British Author Found Dead and Buried in Woods Near Her Dominican Republic Home

British Author Found Dead and Buried in Woods Near Her Dominican Republic HomeA British author was found dead and buried in a shallow grave outside her Dominican Republic home days after she was reported missing, according to local media reports.The body of Lindsay de Feliz, 64, was found Thursday by a canine unit in the woods near her home in Moncion, according to local news outlet, Hoy. Her body, which showed signs of strangulation, had reportedly been buried in a 2-foot-deep hole, wrapped in a yellow sheet and plastic bags used for dog food.  Authorities said Danilo Feliz, her 50-year-old husband, reported the author missing on Tuesday. On Thursday, he was arrested in connection with her death along with his 29-year-old son, Dani Alberto Feliz, and a third man, 37-year-old Anquilino Rosario Sanchez. “We are in close contact with the police in the Dominican Republic following the death of a British woman in Mao,” a spokesperson for the U.K. Foreign Office told The Independent. Some of her former classmates and friends offered a reward this week for any information resulting in de Feliz’s discovery, writing on Facebook that she was “in great spirits” before she disappeared. “She is loved by so many people and is the most generous caring woman I have ever met,” Easton Hector-Brown wrote.Air Force Major Charged With Murder After Missing Wife’s Remains FoundAccording to her website, de Feliz was born and raised in the U.K., where she earned a degree in French and German at Wolverhampton University, and later an MBA at Bradford University. “Following a successful career in marketing she decided to leave it all behind and follow her dreams,” her website states. “Arriving in the Dominican Republic as a scuba diving instructor, for a six-month contract, she ended up staying and married a Dominican, becoming a stepmother to three young boys.”The 64-year-old has written two books about living in the Dominican Republic—What About Your Saucepans? in 2013 and Life After My Saucepans: Lifting the Lid on Living in the Dominican Republic in 2017.In her first memoir, de Feliz chronicled the first decade of her life in the Dominican Republic, from her decision to abandon her marriage and “successful career” in England to her at times tumultuous life in the Caribbean, where she fought against political corruption alongside her new husband and was once shot at in her home. In her second book, de Feliz shares more about her life as an expat, and their decision to live “in hiding, away from the beaches and tourist resorts, in the mountainous, remote, sparsely populated north-west of the country.”“Will Danilo return to politics, will they turn their lives around and will they adapt to their new surroundings?” a description of the book reads. St. Louis Woman Looked Up ‘What to Do if Your Husband Is Upset You Are Pregnant’ Before Her Murder: WarrantsIn addition to her books, de Feliz worked as a translator and marketing consultant. She also maintained a blog chronicling her adventures in the Dominican Republic. Days before she went missing, the author wrote that she and her husband, a newly minted lawyer, went to Puerto Plata for a murder trial, where she was serving as a translator for his client. Later in the Nov. 29 post, de Feliz said she excused herself from the courthouse to stop by a grocery store to pick up some special items for her birthday, which she feasted on while her husband was traveling for work.“The next few days he was away, working on more cases so I stuffed my face with baked potatoes, slathered in real butter and horseradish, rare steak and cream pepper sauce, and a pile of mushrooms,” she wrote. “Pure heaven and a total change from mashed plantains and a tin of sardines.”Read more at The Daily Beast.Got a tip?

Crazy Rich Asians author Kevin Kwan wanted in Singapore for dodging military service

Crazy Rich Asians author Kevin Kwan wanted in Singapore for dodging military serviceThe author of the book "Crazy Rich Asians", which inspired the Hollywood hit film of the same title, is wanted in his home country of Singapore for defaulting on his military service, the defence ministry said on Wednesday. Kevin Kwan, author of the 2013 book and an executive producer of the film, was notably absent from the Singapore premier of the romantic comedy on Tuesday. The Ministry of Defence said Mr Kwan had failed to register for National Service (NS) in 1990, despite notices and letters sent to his overseas address, and he had also stayed overseas without a valid exit permit. "Mr Kwan is therefore wanted for defaulting on his NS obligations," the ministry said in a statement. He was liable to a fine of up to S$ 10,000 ($ 7,315) "and/or imprisonment of up to 3 years upon conviction", the ministry said. Director John Chu and his wife Kristin Hodge pose for photographers as they arrive for the red carpet screening of the movie "Crazy Rich Asians" on Tuesday Credit:  Don Wong/AP Mr Kwan could not be reached for comment. Singapore has a strict law on national service for all male citizens and enforces it with few exceptions. It makes it illegal for men to give up citizenship without having completed their military service, of about two years. Mr Kwan left Singapore at age 11, first moving to Texas with his family, and has lived in the United States since then, Singapore media said. His 1994 application to renounce his Singapore citizenship and a subsequent appeal had been rejected, the ministry said. Mr Kwan's book and the film directed by Jon M Chu depict Singapore as a playground for the super-rich in a story about an Asian-American woman who goes to the city state to meet her boyfriend's wealthy family. Mr Kwan himself comes from a prominent Singapore family. His great grandfather was a founding director of the Overseas-Chinese Banking Corporation – Singapore's oldest bank.
