84-year-old Olga Woltering, who was originally from Suffolk in the United Kingdom, was one of the cruise passengers shot dead. She moved to America and lived on the outskirts of Atlanta, Georgia. Olga was on her way to join a cruise ship and to celebrate her husband’s 90th Birthday with her family. The family had travelled to Fort Lauderdale a day early, ready to set sail on their cruise the following day.
The 26-year-old suspect is in custody and if found guilty could face the death penalty.
