Police investigating after body found near Maraval golf course

An autopsy has been ordered to confirm what caused the death of 47-year-old Kenneth Marcel.

Marcel, said to be from St James, was found dead at about 3:30 pm on Thursday.

Police were notified about a pungent smell near the Moka Gulf Course along the North Coast Road, and upon responding, they found a decomposing body.

The body was viewed by a district medical officer, and there were signs of what appeared to be violence.

However, an autopsy was scheduled to confirm this.

The autopsy was scheduled to take place on Thursday at the Forensic Science Center in St James.

More on this as it becomes available.
