The Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF) said its detectives in St. Ann are probing the circumstances surrounding the death of a senior citizen in the parish.
The deceased is 87-year-old Richard King from Lumsden district in Bamboo, St. Ann.
His body was found in a water tank at his home yesterday, March 24.
The JCF said: “Reports from the Bamboo Police are that, about 1:45PM, passers-by stumbled upon the body and alerted them. Upon their arrival, King’s body was seen afloat in the water. It was fished from the water; the scene processed and the body removed to the morgue for post mortem.”
King is at least the second person to have died as a result of suspected drowning in St. Ann within days.
