CHARLOTTE AMALIE — Authorities discovered the body of a man on board a vessel at American Yacht Harbor in Red Hook on Saturday.

The 911 Emergency Call Center said they received a report of a possible body at 11:20 p.m. on Saturday.

When Emergency Medical Technicians arrived on the scene the EMTs said that the man had no vital signs.

Police said that they found a man wrapped in a red blanket lying face up on the boat’s bed.

Without conducting an investigation first, the Virgin Islands Police Department (VIPD) said it suspects “no foul play” or “anything suspicious.”

The police forensics unit was called but the body was ultimately removed by the V.I. Justice Department coroner.

John McCarthy is primarily known for his investigative reporting on the U.S. Virgin Islands. A series of reports beginning in the 1990's revealed that there was everything from coliform bacteria to Cryptosporidium in locally-bottled St. Croix drinking water, according to a then-unpublished University of the Virgin Islands sampling. Another report, following Hurricane Hugo in 1989, cited a Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) confidential overview that said that over 40 percent of the U.S. Virgin Islands public lives below the poverty line. The Virgin Islands Free Press is the only Caribbean news source to regularly incorporate the findings of U.S. Freedom of Information Act requests. John's articles have appeared in the BVI Beacon, St. Croix Avis, San Juan Star and Virgin Islands Daily News. He is the former news director of WSVI-TV Channel 8 on St. Croix.
