Lauren Patterson was a 24-year-old primary school teacher from the UK, who was teaching in the Gulf state of Qatar. The young woman was last seen in the early morning hours on October 12th, after she had been out on the town, hanging out in a five star hotel’s nightclub, where she was seen in the company of two unidentified men. Lauren was declared missing that morning, and her boyfriend, James Grima, launched a social media campaign to find his missing girlfriend. After dozens of pictures and pleas posted to Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, the hard news hit both James and the rest of Lauren’s family; her body had been found, and Lauren was dead.

Qatar’s Interior Ministry, in a statement written in English on its 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.” The Internior Ministry has yet to say anything more concerning the case, casting some suspense and lack of clarity on the whole situation.

Allegedly, two suspects have been taken into custody concerning Lauren’s death. However, no official information has been given, making it unclear how long the trail will last, or if the right culprits are even in custody. The lack of information is concerning, especially for Lauren’s loved ones.

Despite this lack of clarity, many of Lauren’s loved ones have seemed to make peace with their loss. James 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.” Hopefully, peace can be brought to Lauren’s family and friends soon through justice and light being brought to this terrible situation.

    I know the money to teach in Qatar was alluring. She probably hoped to become a fifth wife for some royal oil tycoon and live the easy life with a luxury yacht. People will say she had just as much of a chance of being killed in Britain or the United States. All I will say is that my daughter will not be going to the Middle East, Africa, or Asia for that matter. She put herself in the position to be murdered by going out late at night, and she augmented her risk by being in a country that hates Westerners and treats women like objects.

      you are one cold heartless Bitch !

      If she uses common sense and makes wise decisions, she can live anywhere. If she makes one bad decision she can die anywhere. Lock her in her room…

      Your comments would be drastically different had this been your kin or loved one. Please refrain from spewing your “wisdom and knowledge” in situations that begs for compassion and understanding.

    • Zara

      And you think Western countries don’t treat women like objects? And all of the Middle East, Africa and Asia are just filled with female-hating serial killers?
      As a woman with ancestry from all three areas of the world I felt disturbed while reading your comment. Clearly you’re not living in the right era.

  • Marco

    If she had a boyfriend, why was she out with 2 dudes in a nightclub??? In a foreign country??? Its her own fault. And this dude is so dumb, she’s cheating on him, and he says she’s his shining star??? What a moron.

    • Kevin O’dell Glenn

      you are a douchebag that I would not waste my piss on you if you were on fire . what a heartless world class piece of dog sheet ! ps you are in need of a good old fashion bitchslap! You heartless world class pos !

    • mike

      You are right Marco what is she doing with two dudes at a night club neither of which are her boyfriend. Sounds fishy but still didn’t deserve to die though. Bottom line people if your a white non-muslim stop going to these Muslim countries period.

    • Ando

      Disgusting insensitive comment.

  • Call me, Carlos

    A subject, should not expect justice, in a muslim country.
    It just won’t happen…… Local knowledge.

  • Filippo

    I used to partake in the al-Thani Award Photo Salon. No more.

    After this, and all the hubbub the royals cause in London with the extreme sports car racing downtown, and the news of crimes in cities of their own against westerners… (BG included), then I have no wish to go there no matter how good the money.

  • amjed

    In 2013 , going out is allowed.Going out with men when you have a boyfriend or even being merried is also allowed when these men are your friends of course. At the end of the day even if a woman betrayes her husband, and i would say betrayes herself and direspects her husband STILL does not deserve to die.i wish qatari authorities start thinking the reason they have nightclubs and offer alcohol to muslims when this is not allowed in islam and the reason they want to perform mundial?TO those who judge the girl i cannot say anything coz is obvious they are non educated,they dont respect women, and therefore their mother,sister and their wife(ves).Lets Allah rest in peace this unlucky human being, this pretty and happy girl who tried to educate our children so that won’t speak as non educated…khalas…
