Every couple looks forward to the day that they get to celebrate a year full of love and happiness with their loved ones. A wedding anniversary may be a simple one like having dinner in your favorite restaurant or even just staying at home and watching some movies. Other couples choose to celebrate this special occasion away from their home and travelling to another country. This couple from St. George, Utah celebrated their 18th wedding anniversary by going on an Alaskan cruise with their family. The day, which is supposed to be an occasion full of love and joy, turned into a day filled with grief and despair.
Kristy and Kenneth Manzanares were going to celebrate their 18th wedding anniversary last July 25, 2017. They boarded the Emerald Princess luxury cruise ship from Seattle, Washington going to Alaska. During dinner, the couple along with their family was enjoying their cruise when suddenly, Kenneth started acting bizarrely. He was reportedly drunk and being aggressive. Kristy took Kenneth back to their room to avoid creating a scene.
That same day, the cruise was holding a Sherlock Holmes-themed musical murder mystery. At around 9pm that evening, they heard the captain make a serious announcement through the speakers and “Everyone, we need all medical, security, all personnel to deck 9 and deck 14”.
What the passengers thought was the signal for the said Sherlock Holmes activity turned out to be a real and urgent announcement brought about by the captain.
Without them knowing, a real crime scene happened in one of the rooms on the ship. They were all shocked to discover the heartbreaking news. Kenneth allegedly killed his wife, Kristy. She was reportedly found lying on the floor covered in her own blood.
The reason for the hideous crime committed by Kenneth? Apparently, Kristy lost patience with how Kenneth was acting that night and asked for a divorce. Her husband couldn’t take the news, assaulted her which caused her sudden death.
The supposed to be happy ending for the couple turned to be a tragic finale for their love story.
