FOUND DEAD: Jeremy Kelly
CHARLOTTE AMALIE — Police today said that they are investigating the death of a Georgia native who was discovered by police after he was reported Dead on Arrival (DOA) by hospital officials early this morning.
The Major Crime Unit was dispatched to Roy Schneider Regional Medical Center about 8:30 a.m. today after receiving a report of a man that a man who died near Frenchman’s Bay was at the hospital now, the Virgin Islands Police Department (VIPD) said.
The police investigator said that he found an unresponsive “white Caucasian male” there who was later identified by his wife as being 44-year-old Jeremy Alan Kelly of Savannah, Georgia, according to VIPD and social media reports.
