Saint Lucia Police have confirmed that the head and body of a young deceased male were found in separate communities in the Southern town of Vieux Fort.
The disclosure came Thursday from police spokeswoman, Anne Joseph.
Joseph told reporters that on Wednesday, Vieux Fort police responded to a report of a body at a location in Canelles, Vieux Fort.
She said the body was without a head.
“The head was later recovered by officers in Morne Cayenne, Vieux Fort,” Joseph explained.
The police spokeswoman would however not be drawn on reports that the discovery came after a male individual told police that he had killed someone and led them to where the body parts were buried.
She said she would not comment on the reports in order not to compromise the ongoing investigation.
Reporters were informed that the body was in a state of decomposition and DNA testing would have to be done to determine the identity of the deceased.
“We have to get the facts, then we can make a pronouncement,” Joseph asserted.
