23-year-old Dutch teacher took some time off to travel through Central America. The highlight of her trip was to take a scuba diving course on the Caribbean island of Roatán, Honduras. For her last night on the island and she partied with her fellow divers. Afterwards, she went home with her Australian instructor. The next morning he and his flatmate dropped a badly injured Mariska off at the hospital in Coxen Hole, and explained that she had fallen onto a tiled floor, face first. Sadly Mariska never recovered. Was her death an accident, or did something more sinister take place?
