Speaking to Loop News today, the Police Public Relations Officer, Acting Inspector Rodney Inniss said:

“The police are still waiting to have the body positively identified because we couldn’t do that due to the stage of decomposition.

“So we are awaiting the post-mortem.”

From the post-mortem, usually conducted by a medical examiner, the police are hoping to also learn the cause of death as well.

Meanwhile, many Barbadians are speculating about the identity of the person. One missing person report was issued for a woman since the discovery and she was traced. Additionally, there are three wanted men still at large in connection with separate matters.
