“It is with deep sadness that I learned of the death of Cassandre Martin, which occurred in a tragic accident on the Terres-Basses road. In these painful moments, I would like to express my sincere condolences and all my sympathy to his family and loved ones on behalf of the Community of Saint-Martin, its elected officials and its agents.
At only 24 years old, Cassandre was a known and loved figure on our island, first runner-up to Miss Saint-Martin and Saint-Barthélemy in 2019 and candidate for the 2022 competition, embodying kindness and perseverance.
His sudden disappearance is an immense loss and reminds us how precious and fragile life is. I join the many tributes paid to her, recognizing the light and joy she brought to those who had the privilege of knowing her.
A tragedy has affected the island of Saint-Martin and we are committed to doing everything we can to ensure that another tragic event does not happen again on the Route des Terres-Basses and more broadly on the roads of our island.
Cassandra, your smile and your light will remain forever engraved in our memories. That your soul rest in peace ".
