Body identified

Police have confirmed the identity of a body removed from a shallow grave in a canefield at Bayfield, St Philip yesterday.

Dead is 42-year-old Michael Mapp of Blades Hill in the same parish. Police say the victim was reported missing on Monday but had not been seen since May 18.

It was around 1.30 p.m. on Tuesday when family members, who went in search of Mapp, discovered the grave and summoned police. The body was found in a state of decomposition.

An autopsy is to be performed to determine the cause of death.


In the meantime, lawmen are investigating the discovery of 893 cannabis plants, the tallest being two feet, which were seized, along with 961 seedlings, in the same bushy area where Mapp’s body was found.

    People all nothing’s wrong with the world its because we are all different people pursuing and leading different lives. The question who’s to be blame for the failure in our societies, the senseless murders, the burglaries, the guns, the drugs , the attack on our innocent children and senior citizens , the failure of our environment and working infrastructure…

    My take we ridicule our (BRPF) in many ways but at the end of the day, the only persons who is doing anything to maintain any sense of security and responsibility are these said people our Police.

    Our bajan people must wake up take back or island we must show responsibility for what we stands for in our individual ways, we must consider what heritage is there for our young people , to build on for they young ones to build on in the future , we have no one to complain to this was proven for the suffering inflicted on our fore parents as slaves for centuries and the same exists today coming from our own people as representatives to us all…

    We all always think by casting a vote by sheer democracy that that’s the biggest thing to freedom we have , but we must now consider how that said vote have placed people in power, who jobs is secured whether they fail or not because they are party people who should not be interfered with..

    Our people should now have learnt a lesson how punishing it can be just casting a vote as party faithful, not considering whether or not the manifest of the political person means anything, this sad behaviour not only reflects on the ruling party faithfuls but on the whole island voting democracy. then we have in power politicians who are failures not answering to anyone..
