Finger print testing and a post mortem examination are being carried out on a male body which washed up on the beach in Chateaubelair to ascertain its identity.

Residents of the North Leeward town who live on the waterfront had a rude awakening at about 6:20 a.m. Wednesday when the body surfaced about 100 yards offshore at the southern end of the bay in an area called Corner Bay.{{more}}

The deceased was clad in a plain green t-shirt and a red and black pair of short pants.

The appearance of the body comes approximately two weeks after the bodies of Brian Baptiste 50, of Chateaubelair and Glenroy ‘Casual’ Delpesche, 25 of Petit Bordel, were discovered on June 25 in the sea water of Trois Loups north of Larikai Point, along the northwestern coast of St Vincent.

A third man, Petit Bordel resident Alston Walker, who went on a fishing trip with Baptiste and Delpesche is yet to be found and is suspected dead.

Post mortem examinations conducted on Baptiste and Delpesche conclude that both men died from asphyxia due to drowning. The pathologist also noted that there was no sign of physical injury on the dead men.
