A news station in Memphis has identified the 21 year old woman who went overboard from Royal Caribbean’s Allure of the Seas cruise ship on September 16, 2012.
There has been speculation about what happened. This was the overboard where the cruise ship delayed reporting the incident to the Coast Guard for two hours. Some people have speculated that the young lady may have committed suicide, although there is no evidence of that.
That scenario seems highly unlikely given the comments that she was posting on Twitter leading up to the cruise, including many tweets expressing her excitement about the trip. Consider one of her last tweets upon boarding the cruise ship:
"Lord keep up safe on this gigantic cruise ship! Let the festivities begin!! See you suckers in a week . . ."
After the delayed Coast Guard search ended, the matter was turned over to the FBI for investigation.
