Body Found Floating In Lamaha Canal

The body of an unidentified man was early this morning discovered by residents of the Meadowbrook community.

The discovery was made just before 6 by a resident who noticed the lifeless body floating in the Lamaha Canal which separates the community from south Sophia. The man’s body has evidence of marks of violence and a gunshot wound to the head there is a tattoo across his back.

Some residents said they heard gunshots in the area over the weekend but paid no attention to it they strongly believe it may have been around the same time that the man was shot. When Police investigators arrived on the scene they managed to retrieve a cell phone along with a chain from the man’s pocket.

He was dressed in blue jeans and a black t-shirt along with a pair of slippers while his hair was braided.
