Body fished from Rio Cobre
Traffic along the Bog Walk Gorge in St Catherine came to a crawl on Monday following the discovery of the body a man in the Rio Cobre. Police, who removed the body from the river, later urged persons who reported family members missing over the last few days to come forward and assist them in identifying the body.
"A number of persons have reported their family members missing over the past few days and this is just part of procedure," a police source said.
A detective who was on the scene told the Jamaica Observer that the body appeared to be that of someone "in the early 50's or younger,", of dark complexion and around five feet eight inches tall.
The body, which was in the nude, was found floating in the section of a river near the popular 'Prim Rock'. (Photo: Kimmo Matthews)
