Judge dismisses law suit against cruise line by family of Missing Honeymooner George Smith

This is quite the set back for the family of missing honeymooner, George A Smith IV. A George smithMiami judge has dismissed the law suit filed against Royal Caribbean Cruise by the family of George Smith.

Judge Jon I. Gordon granted a motion Monday to dismiss the lawsuit faulting Royal Caribbean International for its handling of George A. Smith IV’s disappearance more than a year ago.

“It’s a setback, of course, but it’s not the end,” maritime lawyer Brett Rivkind told Greenwich Time Thursday. “The Smith family isn’t discouraged. Whether the Smith family won or lost, the issue is going to be decided in an appellate court.”

What a bitter pill to have to swallow to have to listen to some smug Royal Caribbean George smith bloodrepresentative say “they exceeded its legal requirements”. Makes one think twice doesn’t it when taking a cruise, especially when one makes such a callous comment when we remember back to the blood stained canvas beneath George Smith’s cabin.


Smith’s parents and sister believe the 26-year-old Greenwich man was murdered, and allege in their lawsuit filed in June that the cruise company tried to cover up the incident to avoid liability and negative publicity.

Royal Caribbean representatives have said the cruise line exceeded its legal requirements when it contacted the FBI and other authorities immediately after learning about Smith’s disappearance.

Christopher Wayne Luttrell Tells Media he Killed the Social Worker in Abduction of Saige Terrell

It would appear that Christopher Luttrell has admitted to the murder of social worker, Boni Frederick, when he and Renee Terrell kidnapped Saige Terrell. Luttrell also apologized to all that he hurt.

When asked if he killed social worker Boni Frederick, Luttrell replied, “Yes, ma’am,” according to Nevels and reporters who were present.

It may be a bit too late for apologies as these two are in a world of trouble.

Authorities allege the couple fled three days earlier after killing Frederick, 67, and abducting Terrell’s 10-month-old son, Saige. Frederick had taken the boy to Terrell’s home in Henderson for a visit.

The baby was found unharmed and has been returned to foster parents in Union County, Ky.

Federal prosecutors in Kentucky initially charged the couple with fleeing to avoid prosecution on kidnapping charges, but have dropped their charges so state authorities could prosecute the two on felony murder, kidnapping, robbery and theft charges, Nevels said. (Houston Chronicle)

Mother denies killing aide

HENDERSON, Ky. – A Henderson woman charged with kidnapping her 9-month-old child after killing a social service aide offered insight into the crimes Thursday but denied involvement in the killing.

During a 40-minute news conference at the Henderson County Detention Center, Renee Terrell, 33, answered a range of questions, refused to address others and generally painted herself as a victim rather than a suspect. (Evansville Courier Press)
