Lawmen have now positively identified the body of a man, discovered at Foul Bay Beach, St Philip this morning.
Dead is 26-year-old David Nicholas Blenman of Heywoods, St Peter.
However, investigations are continuing into the circumstances surrounding his death.
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.
However, family members, including his mother, who identified his body, were simply too distraught to speak.
The discovery of his body was made around 5:45AM by two people who were walking along the beach.
The matter was subsequently reported to police.
