The owner of Legligin Wine Bar said that Shannon Mak, the woman found with a ‘slashed throat’ lying dead in a pool of her own blood, was an intelligent woman, sweet and a hard worker.
This was reported in a number of Dutch newspapers, who also confirmed that the woman is 30 years old.
In international newspapers, it has been reported that Mak had worked at this bar for a while. Lately, she had been working with a gaming company.
Among other points outlined by Dutch newspapers, many commented that this was the fourth murder in Malta in these past few weeks. They mentioned the double murder of an aunt and a mother, Hugo Chetcuti’s murder, along with Tim Scholten’s murder as he was run over in St. Julian’s in July.
