VIPD: Another Dead Body Recovered On St. Thomas: Cops Won’t Tell You Who He Is … Yet

CHARLOTTE AMALIE — Virgin Islands Police Department officers of the Criminal Investigation Bureau were conducting a follow up investigation in the Bovoni area about 1:05 p.m. today.

As a result of the VIPD’s follow-up to Saturday’s murder near Lima Plaza on St. Thomas police said they found another dead body in daylight.

“Officers discovered an unresponsive body of a male who appeared to have sustained injury to his upper body,” VIPD spokesman Karl Caesar said.

Emergency Medical Technicians on the scene confirmed that the male displayed no vital signs and declared the male deceased, according to the VIPD.

“The cause of death is currently unknown pending the results of an official autopsy,” Caesar said.

The identity of the male is being withheld until proper notification of next of kin is achieved. This case remains active and is presently under investigation by the Major Crime Unit of the VIPD.

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everything from coliform bacteria to Cryptosporidium in locally-bottled St. Croix drinking water, according to a then-unpublished University of the Virgin Islands sampling.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