Decomposed body found in Diego Martin

The badly decomposed body of a man was discovered on Thursday afternoon in Diego Martin.

The deceased was said to be clad in a blue long-sleeved jacket, blue jeans and white shoes. A blue cap was found on the right side of the body.

However, it was badly decomposed and as a result, police were unable to determine what would have caused the death of the individual.

The discovery was made at about 2:30 pm on Thursday, in a track along Blue Basin Road, Diego Martin.

It was found by a team of officers from the Western Division Task Force, led by Sgt Arneaud, who walked deep into a forested area before coming across the body.

An autopsy will be needed to determine the cause of death, pending identification.

More on this as it becomes available.
