Headless Victim Identified

No. 132 Wednesday, August 25, 2010
The police in Granville and Mt. Salem have determined the identity of a man who was discovered burned to death and his head severed at a bushy section of the Retirement Dump in St. James last Friday morning.

   The victim who is said to be about 6ft 2ins tall, medium built and of dark complexion, was identified over the weekend as Clayton Stanley, otherwise called ‘Parrio’, 27, unemployed of Pitfour in the parish.
    Last Friday morning, the police say that about 9 o’clock, a resident from the Retirement community who was walking in the vicinity of the municipal dump stumbled upon what they thought at first was just a small fire at a dirt section in nearby bushes.
    He went for a closer look and discovered that the smoke was coming from the remains of a body which was set ablaze and left at the spot. He immediately alerted the police, who upon arrival, discovered that the body was that of a man whose head was severed and was nowhere to be found.
    The police aid Crime Scene Unit personnel combed the area in a bid to recover the head of the victim but their attempts were unsuccessful. The crime scene was processed and the body later removed from the scene and taken to the morgue for post mortem.
    The police are asking members of the public for their assistance in identifying those responsible for this gruesome act. Persons with information are asked to call the nearest police station, Operation King Fish (811), Crime Stop (311) or the Mt. Salem Police (952-3572).
