Unidentified man found dead in Belmont cemetery
The police are seeking the public’s assistance in identifying the body of a man found yesterday in a cemetery at Maryland Hill, Belmont. Police said the victim was possibly strangled because his head was covered with a black plastic bag and a multicoloured shirt.
Residents told police that three cars pulled up in the cemetery around 11 pm on Tuesday. Around 9 am yesterday, officers received an anonymous call that there was a body on the side of the road. When officers responded the body was found in a secluded grassy area surrounded by hills and trees.
Insp Charles, PCs DeGale, Ming, Mendoza and White of the Homicide Bureau and Belmont Police Station visited the scene. The body was viewed by the district medical officer who ordered it removed to the Forensic Sciences Centre in St James for an autopsy pending identification.
