CRUZ BAY — A partially-decomposed body found on St. John eight days ago has been identified as the remains of missing man Mark Moroney.

Moroney, 70, reportedly disappeared during a Virgin Islands Water and Power Authority (WAPA) power outage on Feb. 11 that affected St. Thomas and St. John.

Police said that Moroney’s body was discovered in a steep and heavily-wooded area of Chocolate Hole covered with casha bush.

Moroney was a world-famous attorney from the Isle of Man in the Irish Sea. He told family members during the WAPA outage that he was going outside to get a flashlight.

Police investigators say that they have ruled out foul play in the incident.

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everything from coliform bacteria to Cryptosporidium in locally-bottled St. Croix drinking water, according to a then-unpublished University of the Virgin Islands sampling.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.
