St Mary construction worker's body found in pit

The police are awaiting the results of a post-mortem examination to determine the cause of death of a construction worker whose body was found inside a pit at Three Hills district in St Mary on Sunday.

The deceased has been identified as 35-year-old Warren Henry of Three Hills.

Reports are that Henry was last seen in the area on Thursday. But all efforts to contact him afterwards were unsuccessful.

On Sunday morning, residents who detected a foul odour coming from a section of Henry's premises, found his body in an advanced state of decomposition inside the pit.

Members of the parish's fire department, along with police officers, have been combining their efforts to remove the body from the pit.

Further investigations are ongoing into the development.
