FREDERIKSTED — Police suspect foul play after a middle-aged man was found dead in his bathtub in Two Brothers.

The 911 Emergency Call Center further aired that a concerned citizen was calling the individual but there was no response, and the door was open, according to the VIPD. The female then saw a police squad car traveling westbound and flagged down the officers for assistance.
