Police are investigating two separate incidents involving a fatal shooting at Jacmel Thursday night and the discovery of decomposed body parts at Laborie earlier in the day.
According to investigators, dead as a result of the Jacmel shooting which occurred about 9.00 pm is Jonathan Ben, 29, of Anse La Raye.
The law enforcement officials told St Lucia Times that the victim was shot multiple times and died at the scene.
Reports from the community say a shooter emerged from some bushes and gunned him down in full view of several individuals.
And earlier in the day, the law enforcers disclosed that they discovered decomposed body parts scattered in a bushy area of Laborie.
Investigators say they suspect the body parts belong to a man who had been reported missing.
One man is assisting the police with their investigations into that matter.
There are no further details at this time.
