On Wednesday August 27th at approximately 02.20 P.M. the Community Police Officers for the Simpson Bay and Low land areas were called to the Sonesta Maho Reef Hotel to investigate a case of a man that was found dead at a construction area of that hotel.

Immediately the CPO’s went to the scene where they found the lifeless body of a man doing construction work at that hotel.

The body of this man was found at the bottom of an elevator shaft of a building under construction at this hotel. The man who at this time is identified as D.B. (54) was a native from Haiti.

The death of the victim was pronounced by Doctor H. Deketh from the Mullet Bay Clinic.

The paramedics and the Fire Department were on the scene to assist with the investigation. The investigation done by the investigating officers indicate that the victim had possibly fallen from one of the upper floors, but could at the time not determine which one. The investigating officers however learnt that the Immigration Department were busy with controls at that hotel and that numerous persons as they saw the immigration officers took off running in different directions.  It could also not be determined if the victim was one of those persons that was fleeing from Immigration.

The Forensic Department and Detectives were on the scene collecting evidence and questioning possible witnesses.

The body was confiscated and taken to the morgue as the investigation continues.
