Jill Begora, the Canadian woman who went missing from a cruise ship near the Bahamas still hasn’t been found. Begora is a resident of Victoria, B.C.
Begora went missing on the last night of an eight night Caribbean Cruise Lines vacation. Her husband Dennis Begora, formerly a dentist in St. Catharines, Ontario, last saw her at about 9 a.m. on Saturday. He reported her missing when the ship arrived in port at the Bahamian capital, Nassau at about 1 p.m.
The ship had come from Antigua, an eastern Caribbean island, and officials believe Begora may have gone overboard in the Bahamas.
Fran Cooperman-Pfaff, a Victoria resident and Begora’s best friend had some interesting comments to say regarding Begora.
Fran Cooperman-Pfaff, a Victoria resident and Begora’s best friend, was shaken by what seems more and more certain to be her friend’s death.
“I’m feeling devastated and incredibly sad that this woman is just not going to be here anymore,” said Cooperman-Pfaff.
Recently the family of a man who may have been murdered on a cruise filed a lawsuit against the Caribbean Cruise Lines. But Cooperman-Pfaff doesn’t suspect foul play is involved in her friend’s disappearance. She said Begora suffered from a lifetime of depression.
“There’s something very mesmerizing about the water and you just wonder if someone who is going through a difficult time would just go over,” said Cooperman-Pfaff, but added that the uncertainty surrounding her friend’s disappearance is the hardest part for her to deal with.
“Not knowing what happened is the most difficult part of it,” Cooperman-Pfaff said. “If we could find out more details we could be a lot more settled.”
