Man dead in seaside home

A 47-year-old man was found dead in a house on Sea Spray Drive, off Beach Bay Road near Bodden Town early this morning.

Police were called by colleagues of the man who had gone looking for him when he failed to show up for work.

Officers from the Scenes of Crime Department are examining the scene and detectives from the Criminal Investigation Department are present.

It’s obvious the man was injured, but at this time it would be reckless of the RCIPS to speculate about the nature of those injuries. The man, who is from Canada, was last known to be alive on Sunday.

Police were investigating the incident as a homicide.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact Bodden Town Police Station on 947-2220 or Crime Stoppers on 800-8477 (TIPS). All persons calling crime stoppers remain anonymous, and are eligible for a reward of up to $1000, should their information lead to an arrest or recovery of property/drugs.
