The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

Po­lice are in­ves­ti­gat­ing the cir­cum­stances sur­round­ing the death of an uniden­ti­fied male found hang­ing in West Side Beach, Vieux Fort.

On Mon­day, Fe­bru­ary 1, 2016 about 7:15 a.m. the uniden­ti­fied male was dis­cov­ered in a kneel­ing po­si­tion hang­ing from a tree on a road lead­ing to West Side Beach. He was bare backed, wear­ing a pair of blue boxer shorts and a light brown pair of shoes.

Brown in com­plex­ion, the man ap­pears to have been in his late twen­ties or early thir­ties. He was trans­ported to the St Jude Hos­pi­tal where he was pro­nounced dead by a med­i­cal doc­tor.

On Wed­nes­day, Fe­bru­ary 3, 2016 a post mortem re­vealed that he died as a re­sult of as­phyxia sec­ondary to hang­ing.

No foul play has been sus­pected. The body is still uniden­ti­fied.
