“On Saturday, the fifth day of November, 2022, upon information received around 12:01 p.m., police visited mile forty on the Hummingbird Highway where upon arrival on a feeder road they discovered the decomposed body of a female. The body was photographed and processed and thereafter taken to the morgue, where it awaits a post mortem examination. A thorough investigation is being conducted into this find and we are following some leads at this time. No obvious signs of injuries. A post mortem will be conducted, which will determine the cause of death and we are awaiting for that.”
