UPDATE: Body seen floating in Sea Cow’s Bay found tied up

BVI News has been informed that the body found floating in Sea Cow’s Bay this morning might be the result of a homicide.

Our news centre understands that the body is that of a hispanic male and he was found with his hands bound together.

He was reportedly wearing a white T-Shirt and pair of long blue pants when he was fished out of the sea.

The Royal Virgin Islands Police Force (RVIPF) has not yet given any official statement regarding his identity. They’ve also not yet given official word that he was murdered.

Although the police have processed four scenes involving deceased persons including this latest incident, the RVIPF has only confirmed one official murder since the start of 2021.

The death being treated as a murder at this time is Earl ‘Bob’ Hodge, the victim of a shooting incident in Hannah’s Estate on February 9.

Police are yet to give an update on today’s death while the other two deaths recorded two Fridays ago are being described by the cops as “unexplained deaths”. The RVIPF said detectives are still carrying out investigations and are “not ready to draw conclusions”.

      Tola now right next to Mogadishu, Somalia, St Thomas, South Africa, Chicago and NY. for top spot for murders. What do they all have in common. Wait, wait I know. It’s Black Lives Matter. Well folks the only thing that really matters is that the Black Lives keep killing each other. Bad news is the Clear have to pay to keep them Black Lives in prison. One thing for sure the Black man is not a minority when it comes to murder and crime. They be like number 1.

          You are obviously a product of the BVI school system and have learned nothing of world history or even the history of the Black man. I should take this moment to educate you but I prefer to leave you as the dumba** you are .

    we have ONE media outlet that does not post the picture or video of the dead person’s body in the news story.

    …, …, … – they all saw fit to show the picture of the deceased in all likelihood before his next of kin could hear about it.

    It’s disgusting, and it’s barbaric. It’s a sad reflection of what our community is becoming.

          Please!!! You earn respect. They must first respect themselves. You want an example of disrespect? I am the Government. I have the majority and can get anything passed through the House. Sooo I can give myself contracts and take it to the House to try and make it legal because I have the vote to do it. So I am not stealing because you know about it. Bold face disrespect. And not once, not twice…. Huhhh… Respect is earned.

    • Lovwe for my Country Mr. Premier can you honestly tell the public that you did not use the Social Security monies to help the Government with its recurrent expenditure? We know that the Government is having serious issues with funding. Lots of vendors are not getting paid and the stimulus for businesses are not being given. You did not give any figures to back up your statement and if what you are saying is factual, you should have given a financial breakdown. We do not believe you! says:

      ABB: It is interesting how you are quick to defend your governing party VIP. Did you do the same when the NDP Government was in power? The same Premier we have now along with some VIP supporters put all the blame on the NDP Government for anything that went wrong in this country when they were in power. One never knows when their turn will come!

    human being takes its culture, ways, norms, morrays and forerays with it wherever it goes.

    Given huge the expansion of the DR/Spanish community in that part of the island, there should be no surpise of this finding.

    Sadly, this just the beginning of a new normalcy in the BVI.
