Verona Weekly
Romeo Mantague
Juliet, Verona's own
shining star. Was a
sweet quiet girl with the
prettiest smile. The only daughter of Lord and Lady Capulet. Juliet was to be married to Count Paris on Thursday July 26th, but was found dead on the morning of the wedding. Her funeral was held on the day she died, and was then put to rest in Capulet's tomb, along side Tybalt, her beloved cousin. Recent investigations suggest that Juliet had not really been died on the day of the funeral. She was found in the Capulet's tomb on July 27th out of her casket and on the ground with a dagger in her stomach. The dagger was known to belong to Romeo Montague, who was also found dead in the tomb.

Romeo Montague was
found dead on July 27th
in the tomb of Juliet
Capulet. Romeo was the only child of Lord and Lady Montague and he liked to spend most of his time taking long walks in the woods. Every time you met Romeo you could never forget his passion and love. Romeo died from a poison. His death has been ruled a suicide. Friar Lawrence revealed that he was married to Juliet Capulet just two days before. The case has yet to be resolved. Romeo's funeral will be held on July 30th at the Montague's manor. Lady Montague has died out of grief over her son's death.
Rare picture of Juliet in the Capulet's
tomb, during the funeral.
Juliet Capulet was pronounced dead on Thursday July 27th 1683. Fair Juliet, young, innocent, and loved by all. A death that struck the city like the plague. Taken to soon, but, was she really dead? Friar Lawrence admitted in a recent interview that Juliet was not on July 27th. She was under the effects of sleeping potion, which made her appear dead in every way. Friar also revealed a shocking scandal involving Romeo Montague. Friar revealed to our secret source that he had married Romeo Montague and Juliet Capulet only 1 day before the morning Juliet was found dead. Rumor has it Juliet pretended to kill herself due to the fact that she did not want to marry the County Paris. As it turns out Paris was also found dead in the Capulet's tomb. This tragedy has taken the city by surprise. A tragedy is an event causing great suffering, destruction, and distress. Benvolio revealed that Romeo had a dream that he would die and untimely death. Fate is what killed these star crossed lovers. Fate, one of the few things that we can't control. The tragic hero is Romeo, and his main flaw is love. Romeo died because of love, along with the tragic ways of fate. Romeo killed himself because he thought Juliet was dead, even though she wasn't. Juliet pretended to kill herself because she didn't want to marry Paris. She awoke in the tomb to find her husband Romeo, dead, and the body of Paris, of whom she was to marry earlier that day. She then took Romeo's dagger and used it on herself. Lord and Lady Capulet blame the Friar for their son's death. The Friar, one of the most trusted men in Verona. The Friar was supposed to have a letter delivered to Romeo telling him that Juliet was not really dead. The letter, was never delivered. Romeo was supposed to come to the Capulet's tomb with Friar Lawrence on the night Juliet was supposed to wake, to take her to live with Romeo. Instead, never receiving the letter, Romeo though Juliet was dead, so there in the Capulet's tomb, next to her body, Romeo swallowed a vial of poison and was dead within seconds. Ending in the deaths of many, on this sad, sad day.
The news that has taken the city by storm is the news Tybalts death. Tybalt was killed by Romeo Montague, son of Lord and Lady Montague. We asked him why he committed this crime he said " He killed my best friend" Nothing more was said. The Capulet family is also never going to recover from this devastating crime. County Paris Juliets fiance had some words to say about his bride to be " Immoderately she weeps for Tybalts death. And therefore have I little talked of love; fo venus smiles not in a house of tears." What he does not know and only the nurse the friar and the Romeo and Juliet know is that she is not crying for Tybalts death. She is crying for Romeo's Banishment! Some insider 411 is that she is actually married to Romeo and has not told anybody besides Nurse and Friar Lawrence. By the response that County Paris gave us he does not seem to know either. The Capulets and the Montagues have a huge problem on there hands.Two star crossed lovers that is what the people in the news are calling them. Check up on there story in the Verona Weekly. The news will always be shocking.
County Paris
Paris Was Born on July 16th 1664. He died on July 28th. He was the gentleman of our time. He was a sophisticated man with a kind heart for people. He was killed by the later deceased Romeo Montague. He did have a love for his Juliet. Crime investigators did figure out that Romeo was married to Juliet before County Paris Could. "He will be dearly missed" Said lady capulets mom in tears. County Paris's funeral will be on August 1st.
