3rd woman who died in boat capsizing is identified
MIAMI (AP) -- Another Haitian woman who died when a boat capsized off Miami has been identified.
Miami-Dade Medical Examiner's Office Director of Operations Larry Cameron said Thursday that a family member has identified the woman as 36-year-old Lodilia Escarment.
Cameron has previously said relatives identified two other victims as Carmen Valeris and Woodline Alexis, both Haitian women in their 30s.
A fourth female victim remains unidentified. All four women died when the boat carrying 15 people capsized seven miles east of Miami.
The 11 survivors were found clinging to the hull early in the morning Oct. 17. Six Jamaican and Bahamian survivors face federal charges. Officials say the other five Haitian and Bahamian survivors are witnesses in a criminal investigation.
Caribbean migrants routinely try to illegally enter the U.S. in overloaded boats.
