Decomposing bodies in Maraval, S Cruz and Arouca

Police are trying to identify three decomposing bodies found in Maraval, Santa Cruz and Arouca within a span of 24 hours.

In the first incident, investigators were called to a scene in Anderson Terrace, Camille Drive, Maraval, at around 5.30 pm where they found the body of a man wrapped in a sheet.

Police said they did not have an identification for the body just yet, but appeared to have been beaten over the head.

At around 7 am Arouca Police responded to reports that a decomposing body was found in a garden road, on the northern side of the Priority Bus Route, near Lopinot.

Despite the state of decomposition, investigators noticed what appeared to be chop wounds on the body.

Hours later at around 9.15 am passers by noticed what appeared to be the outline of a man in some bushes at the side of the Saddle Road in Santa Cruz.

Santa Cruz CID visited the scene and found the badly decomposing body of a man.

Investigators said due to the state of decomposition they could not tell if the body had any marks of violence but suspected it may be the body of a man reported missing in Port of Spain earlier this week, as his clothing matched that of the clothes the man was last seen wearing.

No identification was found on the body.
