Residents in the close-knit community Allen View, St Thomas, are in grief over the loss of their own after he was found hanging yesterday evening.

Police said they responded to a report around 3:15 p.m. and discovered the body of 21-year-old Keshawn Anderson Bartlett hanging from a tree in a gully a short distance from his home.

He was pronounced dead by a medical doctor after efforts to revive him failed.

Relatives said he suffered with mental health challenges.

Cousin Owen Webb told the Weekend Nation the death would put a damper on the area as many of those who lived there were related. (SB)
