Man murdered, body dumped in Petit Valley

Police are calling on the public’s help in identifying the body of a man which was found this morning in Morne Coco Road, Petit Valley.

According to police reports, just before 6 am today, police received information that the body of a man was seen lying along the roadway.

The man appeared to have been shot multiple times, and his hands were tied together.

The police were notified and a team of officers under the supervision of Snr Sup Nelson visited the scene.

The body was that of a man who was clad in a dark-coloured three-quarter jeans, and a black and purple hoodie.

Based on the blood patterns on the ground, as well as the fact that no explosions were heard prior to the discovery of the body, police suspect that the deceased may have been killed elsewhere and his body was dumped.
