08/31/2021 by Reggaeville
Two days after Lee Scratch Perry died, still no exact cause of his death is known. The Jamaica Observer reported that he "died in the Noel Holmes Hospital in Lucea on Sunday morning". Perry's sudden passing has shocked the world. Innumerable condolences, obituaries and tributes have been published since Sunday.
Today Lee Perry’s wife Mireille published a statement on the official Lee Scratch Perry social media channels.
Her post contained three text graphics (see below) and was accompanied by this text:
"I have no words for what had happen! Nobody was expecting something like that because he was not sick! Lee had so many plans that he was looking forward to. So many different projects, shows, art, designs, Community.... I’m not allowed to give any details for the moment, but I could just say that Lucea Hospital didn’t have anything to do with his tragic passing away or did something wrong. In the memory and honor of LEE SCRATCH PERRY we’ll build his £$P community in the exact way that he dreamt about. He had a very clear picture how he wanted it to look. So the plans for volunteering are still valid. I’m going to go trough your messages as soon as I recover a little from the terrible shock. It will be me now who will post and let you know what’s going on. Much love and blessings to you all, Miri"
"To all of Lee’s fans and supporters!
I sincerely thank you for your outpouring of love and condolences.
This catastrophic loss is totally unexpected and unbelievable!
! Lee Scratch Perry WAS NOT SICK !!!
I promise I will get justice for the mishandling that took place!
I promise I will not stop until we get justice from the people responsible for his death.
LEE was so looking forward to building his LSP Paradise community with a studio and art house in December after the UK tour!
He was also so happy to begin touring again with is performances from october.
The people responsible for his death are not going get away with his passing!!!
We have 100 percent evidence that he would still be alive if they had not done what they did also out of MONEY GREED!!!!"
