Hilberto Romero

Last Thursday, the badly decomposed body of a John Doe was discovered floated near mile five on the Phillip Goldson Highway. The discovery was made when a caretaker of a property just past the Haulover Bridge, who immediately alerted the police. A postmortem conducted on the body that same day would be inconclusive as to the cause of death and all police was able to say was that the person is male and likely Caucasian. But it has been five days since and the body has still not been identified, says Superintendent Hilberto Romero.

“We have some leads that we are following up but again we have not confirmed fully the identity of this person, but we are working on it as we speak.”

The body was found clothed in khaki shorts and a black t-shirt. A tattoo with the name “NINFAR” was observed on the right arm, and a black and red wristband with the name “ANIBAL” was observed on the left arm.
