Update: Man's body found in Mon Desir identified

Update March 29, 2019, 11:04 am:

The body which was found in Mon Desir on Saturday night has been identified as 44-year-old Stephen Worrel of Rezo Settlement, Fyzabad.

The body was identified first, via fingerprint tracings which were done by police.

Worrel, police said, had a criminal past with several links to housebreakings and larceny.

His relatives were then notified, and the body was viewed and confirmed by family members.

An autopsy was performed, however, the results were said to be inconclusive due to the state of decomposition the body was in at the time of its discovery.

Worrel’s body was first observed at about 6:00 pm on Saturday off Delhi Road, off the Mon Desir Highway.

A group of friends were taking pictures when they observed the body of a man lying face down in some bushes.

Police responded and searched for the body, which was located around 7.15 pm in some bushes about 100 feet off the roadway.

More on this as it becomes available.
