Steven Mondestin Hospitalized on July 14, 2012 because of injury on moped. In which it caused his death. the hospital holding his body is Michaels Hospital. Stevens' family here in the US sent a relative who resides in Haiti to have his body released. some person by the name of christo of no relation to Steven is rwefusing to release his body to blood relatives. for what reason is he holding his body. He's refusing to release Stevens' body unless we pay $3000.00 to him. He has no right what so ever to do this. We just want as his family to give him a decent burial. This is a paiinful moment for Stevens' family and friends. Why would someone hold his body for ransom? Because we live in US does not mean that everybody is rich here. It is very expensive to here live in US. Everything is not good as some foreigners thing of US. The bad part is that when the relative arrived at the hosptial I believe Christo his name called the police to have that relative removed from the hospital premises. He has called family members for money to release his body of $3,000. When we had the opportunity to get his body for burial. Steven was not given up to the relative to be buried in Haiti on a burial plot there; because we can not afford to have his body flown here in US. We are poor also; but live in a little better condition. He will be missed dearly.
I will have this published in as many newspapers in the United States as possible about what has happen to my husband. Most people can't believe this has happening in Haiti. Also televised on National Television.
