ST JAMES, Jamaica — Detectives assigned to the Montego Bay Criminal Investigation Branch (CIB) are seeking the public's assistance in identifying the bodies of two men that were found in separate areas of the parish yesterday.

It is of dark complexion, slim build and is believed to be in its thirties. It was clad in a green merino and jeans.

A second man's bullet-riddled body was found about 10:15 pm lying on its back in Johnson Hill, Glendevon, after residents reported hearing gunshots and summoned the police.
