Police seeking missing laptop of dead woman

Police conducting enquiries into the death of 43-year-old Lija Godenzi are trying to trace her missing laptop computer.

The body of Mrs. Godenzi was found within her apartment in the Sunrise complex, just off Crewe Road, on 7 April. Police are not treating her death as suspicious.

According to the Royal Cayman Islands Police Service, during the course of conducting enquiries into Mrs. Godenzi’s last movements, police officers established that she picked up her Apple Macbook Pro from Cyber Joe’s in Grand Harbour some time after 3pm on Monday, 2 April.

“Despite extensive enquiries with friends and family, no trace of the laptop has yet been found,” according to a statement from police, released on Monday.

Detectives want to speak to anyone who may have seen Mrs. Godenzi after she left Cyber Joe’s on Monday, 2 April, and also want to talk to anyone to whom she may have given the laptop in the days prior to her death.

After picking up the laptop, Mrs. Godenzi, who was possibly wearing shorts and a tank top, drove away in her sky blue Kia Carnival, license plate number 131 044, police said.

Anyone who has information regarding the whereabouts of the laptop is asked to contact George Town police station on 949-4222.


  1. Not suspicious? It’s taken over two months to reveal to the public her laptop is missing. That seems like critical intel. Whenever there is a strange death on the island just bring in a real detective from the UK or US. The detectives here just don’t have the experience or the brain power.

  2. Death NOT suspicious,stated by RCIPS in cayCompass edition 9th April 2012. The body was found about noon on Saturday 7th April 2012. What investigation
    can be done in one day? Why did RCIPS make this stupid statement? Was the flat marked CRIME SCENE
    sealed-off for further detailed inspections ???
    Now most of the vital evidence is gone.

  3. It’s amazing how you junior detectives can definitely say, that this laptop will crack the case wide open.

    I mean, wow. What are you guys doing, wasting your day, at your current day jobs, when you could be out solving crime.

    I think ya need to put down the kool aid and let the detectives do their work.
