CHARLOTTE AMALIE – A male Hispanic man in his late 20’s or mid 30’s was found shot to death early this morning on Black Point Hill, according to the Virgin Islands Police Department.
Police were sent to Black Point Hill at 8:05 a.m. today after receiving a report from Central Dispatch of a dead body in the area, the VIPD said.
When police arrived at Black Point Hill, they met with a detective of the VIPD who said that at about 7:58 a.m., while walking in the area of John Brewers Bay Beach, she was flagged down by a passing motorist.
The motorist asked if the detective had seen the body of a man lying in the area of the former dump site, to which she replied “No,” police said. At the same time, the detective said she saw another officer driving by. She stopped the officer, and relayed what she had been told by the passing motorist, and the two traveled to the former dump site.
The motionless body of a Hispanic man, in his late twenties to mid-thirties was discovered lying on the ground shot multiple times, according to police. The two officers notified Central Dispatch of their discovery.
There was no identification on the body, which was later taken to the morgue at the Roy L. Schneider Regional Medical Center, police said.
