Police investigate death of Trinidad boat captain
McLeanâs lifeless body was found floating in the Kingstown harbour last Friday, March 24 around 7 p.m., two days after his colleagues reported him missing.
The Trinidad and Tobago national was last seen alive on Wednesday, March 22, between 7 and 8 p.m. when he told friends that he was not feeling well and was going to seek medical attention.
Reports are that McLean suffered from high blood pressure and was distressed over a cocaine related incident, which saw him and his crew being detained in Tortola about three weeks ago.
A missing personâs report had been filed on Thursday, March 23, after McLeanâs crew could not locate him.
McLean was the captain of the C Elizabeth II, a Trinidadian owned motor vessel that carries out inter-island transportation of general goods mainly between Trinidad and St Vincent and the Grenadines (SVG).
