Journo killed by crocodile found
– Sri Lankan police yesterday found the body of a 24-year-old British journalist, Paul McClean, who is suspected to have been killed by a crocodile.
Divers found McClean’s corpse in the mud of a lagoon in the coastal village of Panama, 360km east of the capital Colombo by road, a police spokesperson said.
“There were six or seven wounds on his right leg,” a police official said. “The body was stuck in mud at about the same place where he was seen last.”
A crocodile is believed to have dragged McClean away on Thursday. –
