Dead body found in Burrell Boom

vlcsnap-2013-05-28-21h03m07s139This morning police visited an area known as Henderson Bank, behind Burrell Boom. PLUS News was there too and though we were kept away we noted a postmortem examination being conducted by Dr. Mario Estradabran on the remains of what appeared to be a male body found by a fisherman in the area several hours before, badly decomposed. We spoke to two residents of the area. Up until this evening, the identity of the man is still unknown.

vlcsnap-2013-05-28-21h23m52s171I was working up there.  The two Police Officers came. So I came to investigate what they came down here to do. So he told me that he found a  dead body up the river, and the boat passed and went to get it. So a little while after the boat came down, towing the dead body in the river.  They take it from the river and put it in a pick-up, and took it away.
The body was partially decomposed. One of his hands was missing, and one of his feet. The face, you could never recognize the person, whoever he was.
I think this body supposed to happen further up the river.

vlcsnap-2013-05-28-21h31m05s135I didn’t see, but the Police told me that the man didn’t have no face, because I was asking her if it’s of a Spanish decent or whatever, because like I was thinking we have a lot of aliens in the country, so he could be but anybody.
