Body found in Queen's Park Savannah was POS security guard

The body which was discovered on Sunday at the Queen’s Park Savannah was identified as 27-year-old Matthew James of La Pastora, Santa Cruz.

James, police said, worked for Shield Security Services, and was assigned to Albion Court in Port of Spain.

An autopsy has since confirmed that James was stabbed to death.

It is suspected that his attackers attempted to destroy any evidence which may have led police to them by burning James’ body, before dumping it at the Queen’s Park Savannah on Sunday morning.

James was last seen alive at about 3:00 am on Sunday when he left his post to get food.

His body was found five hours later.

Police are continuing investigations.

More on this as it becomes available.
