The Venetian General, Othello strangled his wife yesterday, October 29th in their bedroom because he believed she was having an affair with his lieutenant, Cassio. After the murder of his wife, he killed himself out of grief. The maid, Emilia was also found dead in the same room where the general and his wife were. The news came as a shock to the venetians, especially those who witnessed the murder. The full details are not known, but sources would tell how the murder happened. Bianca the local prostitute spoke “ Othello suspected Desdemona of having an affair with Cassio after he saw me with the handkerchief he had given her. I did not know that he was so jealous that it led to my mistress death. I did not witness Othello’s death but I’m sure he sure he must have felt guilty. Lodovico, Desdemona’s cousin spoke” I did not witness Desdemona’s murder but I heard of it and came to look for the rash man who killed her. He was once a good man but was tricked by Iago. I told Othello that he had being stripped from his power and command and that Cassio will govern Cyprus. I also told him that he would remain a prisoner until we bring his crimes to the Venetian government. At some point, he said a few words and stabbed himself to death. Cassio, Othello’s lieutenant spoke” I also did not witness my mistress murder but I came to the room where the murder took place. Shortly after, Othello accused me of having an affair with his wife, which was not true. I was there when Othello stabbed himself. I was afraid this would happen, because he was a noble, brave man, but I didn’t think he had a weapon. The people of Venice are mourning over the death of the beloved couple. Burial arrangements are still going on and would be announced when decisions are made.
