Police have found human skeletal remains in St. David’s, Christ Church and are now trying to determine the identity of the deceased individual.
Lawmen found the remains in a dense, bushy area about 400 feet north of the St. David’s Main Road as they were searching the area during a drug eradication exercise early this morning.
“Efforts are ongoing to determine the gender and identity of the remains. The assistance of the public is being sought for any information that may lead to the identity of this person,” police public relations officer Inspector David Welch said in a statement a short while ago.
No further details were provided.
Meantime, the drug eradication exercise, carried out around 5 am by members of the Drug Squad supported by other units of the Royal Barbados Police Force and members of the Barbados Defence Force, uncovered 2,456 cannabis plants in a bushy area north of St. David’s Village.
The tallest of the plants was five feet. A man who was found in the area is now assisting police in their investigations into the find.
