Dad identifies body of son

A FATHER’S WORST fears were confirmed yesterday morning when he went to identify the body of his son.The last time Delisle Worrell of Parish Land, Christ Church, saw his son Jason Worrell, 29, of the same address, was on Tuesday morning but he did not identify the body until yesterday.The reason for this was because the description of his son on the radio was incorrect.“On Tuesday morning around 7 a.m. I saw him in the yard and we had a conversation before he left. On Wednesday morning, I got up and saw the lock still on his door which meant he didn’t sleep home,” he said.Worrell said he heard a body had washed up on Enterprise beach “on the 12:30 p.m. news but the description was of a man in his 40s with greying hair so he disregarded it.“On Thursday, the lock was still on and by Saturday I decided I would give it one more day, then I would call the police,” he said.This was when Worrell discovered his son was gone.“I identified the body and that was it. I’m trying to be strong, and my family as well as my church family is rallying around me,” he said.Worrell described his son as a quiet person who kept to himself and did not get into any trouble. He said he was not a “beach person” but probably just went for a sea bath.Jason Worrell leaves to mourn his parents, three brothers and a sister. He had no children. (CA)
