UPDATE-Foul play suspected in death at Foul Bay

Lawmen say foul play is suspected in the death of a 26-year-old man, whose body was discovered at Foul Bay Beach early Thursday morning.

The motionless body of David Nicholas Blenman of Golden Mile, Heywoods, St Peter was discovered on Foul Bay Beach, St Philip around 5:45 AM by two people who were walking along the beach.


When a Barbados TODAY team visited Foul Bay this morning, they were just in time to see Blenman’s body being removed from the beach.

A hired vehicle, with registration number H1723, was also parked nearby, as lawmen combed the beach for clues to Blenman’s death.

Family members, including his mother, who identified his body, had gathered at the scene, but they were simply too distraught to speak.


However, police have already determined that Blenman’s death was unnatural, and they are seeking the public’s assistance in getting to the bottom of the matter.

“We are therefore asking anyone who may have seen the motorcar registration number H1723 in the Foul Bay, St Philip area between 6 p.m. on Wednesday and 6 a.m. on Thursday, or who can provide any information to assist with the investigations to contact the Police Emergency at telephone number ‘211’, Crime Stoppers at 1-800-TIPS (8477), District ‘C’ Police Station at 4168200, or the nearest police station,” said Acting Inspector Roland Cobbler in a release issued late Thursday evening.

The police public relations officer also assured that “all information received will be [treated as] strictly confidential”.

    Police cannot say the death was ‘unnatural’, that is a job for the coroner.
    By the way, if the man was dead his body will be motionless.

    The police can say the death was “unnatural” if there are obvious signs of injury- such as a puncture wound or gunshot.
