Charred Remains of Unidentified Man Discovered Near Scotland Half Moon

While the Police have been able to readily identify the deceased in those two deaths, they have not done so in a third, which was actually the first of the weekend. That’s because the body, discovered about four hundred feet from the Bermudian Landing Bridge by someone passing by, was burnt beyond recognition. Police received that call at around eleven Saturday morning, and had actually made a preliminary identification based on a missing person report. But now, News Five understands that there is some hesitation, since one family member is saying it is that person, and another is saying it isn’t. The Police have decided to wait on the post-mortem examination to provide more answers and hopefully, certain identification.

 

Sr. Supt. Edward Broaster, Rural Regional Commander

“We discovered the charred remains of a person believed to be a male person. At this point investigations are continuing with that. We have initial indication…this person was partially identified by a tattoo on his chest by the mother, but we are going to wait for the confirmation from the doctor to confirm that yes, this is indeed the subject that was reported missing a couple hours after we discovered the body of that individual in the Bermudian Landing area. This morning like I said we had indication that the mother ID’d the body as that of her son. We are waiting for further confirmation with other things to conclusively say that’s the person.”

Supt. Hilberto Romero, Head, Crimes Investigation Branch

“The body was removed and taken to the morgue. A post-mortem investigation will be conducted tomorrow. The body had been burnt and so the doctor will be the one to determine if it has any sort of injuries at this time.”

 

Reporter

“Have you all been able to determine from the scene if the body was dumped there or burned there?”

Supt. Hilberto Romero

“Yes we believe that the body was thrown there. It was burned somewhere else.”

 

Sr. Supt. Edward Broaster

“We are not sure how the body got there, how it was transported to that location…however we are conducting searches in various areas to see whether we can determine where the crime scene was.”
