The police are awaiting the results of a post-mortem examination to determine the cause of death of a body that was found inside a pit in Spanish Town, St. Catherine.
The deceased has been identified as 24-year-old Damion Brown.
Reports are that Brown was last seen in the area on Thursday. But all efforts to contact him afterwards were unsuccessful.
On Tuesday morning, residents who detected a foul odour coming from a section of the premises, found his body in an advanced state of decomposition inside a pit.
Members of the parish’s fire department, along with police officers, have been combining their efforts to remove the body from the pit.
Further investigations are ongoing into the development.
