Remains of body found
Human skeletal remains were found yesterday in a bushy area off Atlantic Park in Cattlewash, St Joseph.
Police Inspector Christopher Lashley of the Northern Division of the Criminal Investigations Division said neither the identity nor even the sex could be ascertained until further investigations were done.
“We received an anonymous call that skeletal remains had been found in the hills of Cattlewash. We found those remains among shrubbery, along with articles of clothing, but we have yet to determine the sex, although it is possibly a male,” he said.
The remains were located deep inside a muddy area, behind some residences off Atlantic Park. Personnel from Two Sons Funeral Home removed the remains and personal effects, including shoes, which were all in a bag.
Lashley said the police’s next step was to try to identify the remains through routines including checking the list of missing people.
