Update: Body found in water near Careenage


Share post:

There is a huge amount of speculation surrounding a body that was discovered Thursday afternoon in Bridgetown.

It took about six hours for the weathered body to be hoisted from the waters after being discovered by someone who was fishing in the vicinity of the Bridgetown Heliport and the Bridgetown Fisheries Complex.

A number of curious onlookers gathered behind the yellow tape after police cordoned off the area, with some whispering that it might have been a man who is wanted by police for a serious matter.

Around 8:30 p.m., members of the Royal Barbados Police Force who had employed the services of the Barbados Coast Guard and a crane to lift the body out of waters successfully did so.

The body was placed into a Two Sons Funeral van and a check was made with police public relations officer Acting Inspector Rodney Inniss, who could not give the identity of the person, but said he would provide more details when it comes to hand. (TG)
