Share post:

Police have identified the man whose body was discovered in his apartment at Coles Road, Belmont Road, St Michael yesterday as 52-year-old Ronald McArthur White.

Police public relations officer Acting Inspector Rodney Inniss said there were no bruises, wounds or injuries about White’sbody.

During a brief phone interview Inniss said: “He lived alone and we suspect he passed away. His body was discovered around 4 p.m. and there is no reason for us to suspect foul play at all.”

Inniss also dismissed any claims that photos circulating on social media of a man found in a barrel with burns about his body were of White.

“Contrary to what is going around, police are not investigating a murder or anything like that. I have no idea where the photos originated from. We are not responsible for posting them and we are not associated with them at all. I don’t even know if that happened in Barbados.

“If something as gruesome as that had happened, we would have alerted the public ever since.”(SB)
