Default Claudia Kirschhoch

I just saw the segment about this lady who got stranded in Jamaica with a friend in 2000 and subsequently disappeared.

I realise that nobody has been posting about this. I wonder does anybody have any updates on the case?

The most recent updates I can find through searching the net are these 2 listed websites below:

http://scaredmonkeys.net/index.php?topic=2428.0

http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/...h_claudia.html


The nearest info states that as at 2007, there has been no sign of her yet. Her family had her legally declared deceased in 2002.

They filed a case against the resort she stayed in, for tampering with evidence and causing emotional distress which began trial in 2005. Does anybody have any update on the lawsuit?





Based what the segment showed, I am inclined to believe the obvious suspect is the bartender, Anthony Grant.

The police guard dog actually tracked Claudia's scent to his house, the bed and a knife! And subsequently to his car, the backseat, and the trunk!

This is more than incriminating enough to say that Anthony Grant though may not have 'killed' her, he more or less knows where she had disappeared to.. right?

I am shocked to learn that the police didnt even consider him a suspect!!


I think the most likely scenario is that Grant got Claudia to his house, tried to rape her, she resisted, so he took the knife and killed her. Then hid her body in the trunk of his car and proceeded to dump the body.



What do you think happened to Claudia Kirschhoch?

Contrary to popular belief, Jamaica can be a very dangerous country. It's so dangerous that police barricade the tourist areas from the general poplulace.

if a tourist is not careful, they can be kidnapped, raped, murdered and robbed.

There are numerous ways that Claudia could have met her fate on the Island.

That may mean nothing. All that says is that Claudia was at his house, which isn't strange considering they were romantic together. The scent on the knife could be residual.

Where was the blood? Where were Claudia's posession". Where did Anthony Grant kill her.

I trust the the police's judgement on this
1. The Jamaican constublary is actually one of the better police departments in the Carribean Islands (second only to Cuba, of course.But they have stricter laws. ) They are not like Aruba's police.

2. The Jamaican police deal with several homicides a year. Kingston especially is a violent city. A lot of the cases they clear are drug murders, which are difficult to begin with. They don't lack experience.

Boy, the biggest crooks in Jamaica are the people in resorts!. I wouldn;t trust them, period!

The problem I have with the rape theory is that I think Claudia was more than willing to oblige with Grant's needs. An may have done so before she disappeared.


The hills of Jamaica are an mysterious place. Somebody could hide out there for years and never be heard from again. The blue mountain hills are almost like the Appalachian Hills in

Add to the fact that it isn't that unusual to have white woman that part of the area, due to tourists, mixed-race, British nationals and celebreties looking to hide out.

The possibility remains that Claudia may be living in those very hills. Against her will or not.

i suppose claudia was raped and murdered, it seems righ that he killed her in his room somewhere got rid of the evidence that had blood and cleaned off the knife and his scent was still on the blade. apparently she must have had an affair with him which leads on to murder to be exact he tried to rape her and he did so he killed her and then put her body in the trunk of his car i don't know where her body is though. hmmm

Just watched this one today and I really think Anthony Grant is the obvious suspect. For one, he was known to have ties with Claudia, since she told her travel companion that the two went out to a club the night before she disappeared. Second, according to the Charley Project website, Grant called out from work on the day she disappeared and stayed out of work for the next four days. Coincidence? Tack on the fact that the dog traced Claudia's scent to Grant's residence and I think you have more than enough to declare Grant as a viable suspect.

Funny you say that. On American Justice or some show like that, they profiled a crime and said Jamaica was 98% crime free. I like hearing your side.

In America, most definitely. Seems like in foreign countries, if the victim is an American citizen, they do not want to get too involved.

I went to Jamaica in 2007 and was basically told not to leave the resort. Even walking the beach in front of the resort I was constantly bugged by locals trying to sell me drugs or looking for money. I would not go back. Plenty of beaches where I live without the harassment.

My wife and I are going on a trip in August and the Sandals resort in Jamaica was one of the destination we discussed. However, a friend of ours has been and had a very similar encounter to what you just described. I just wouldn't go anywhere near that country anymore.

You know it's funny, I've been watching a lot of Press Your Luck episodes again from the 80's and Jamaica has been on the big board a lot lately. I don't think I'd want to go there. They also have a crap ton of Mexican vacations and places around there, and I think I'd rather hit the whammy. At least I wouldn't be in fear of my life.

But the trips to Europe, Canada and Australia sound cool. African Safari also sounds fun.

Bermuda is another weird one. I just hope the people that won it didn't get lost in the triangle.

Hmmm I understand the reservation(or lack there of for the plural)about both Jamaica and Mexico and there aren't too many places outside of the resort areas in Jamaica that I would go to but the resort areas are safe you just can't trust everyone. Same with Mexico. Heck i would say that those resort areas are safer than some areas in our own country. Resort places like those are vital to the economy of those respective countries so they do a pretty good job keeping tourists safe and secluded to those areas. i know that the mexican border areas are dangerous, but I've been to other places in Mexico and they are generally safe. It seems like just a few years ago(more like 10) I lived in AZ and a lot of my friends would go to rocky point on the weekends, but it got so dangerous in the Mexican side of the border that people quit going.

As far as Claudia I always got the sense the guy that was her romantic interest was involved somehow, but that was the only thing I can remember from the segment. If she wandered off the resort area with him willing or not who knows what happened. This was a shame much like the Amy Bradley case.
