Murder by Slit Throat Off George Price Highway

There are two murders to report tonight and in both cases, the identity of the victims has still not been established. Just before two p.m. today, police were called out to an area between miles three and four on the George Price Highway. Some three hundred feet off the pavement in some bushes, they discovered the body of a man, believed to be of Creole descent. John Doe’s throat had been slit and his body dumped in the area. After the scene was processed this afternoon, Superintendent Alejandro Cowo of the Crime Investigation Branch updated the media their initial findings.
