Police have confirmed that the body found in Brandywine Bay early Wednesday morning is that of Trumayne Daway.
Police found Daway in the driver’s seat of a vehicle with gunshot wounds burrowed about his body.
He was pronounced dead at the scene.
Law enforcers are investigating the murder.
This marks the third murder since the start of the year and comes less than 24 hours after Governor Augustus Jaspert and Premier Dr D Orlando Smith announced a new security plan for the territory.
The other two persons that were killed this year are Michael Stevens and Clevaughn Sweeney. The duo was gunned down near Althea Scatliffe Primary in Road Town just over two weeks ago.
There has been a number of other shootings on Tortola and some have resulted in injuries.
