INVESTIGATORS are now treating the death of Ray Rose, owner of Raymar's Automotive Limited, as a homicide following developments which left the initial theory of suicide in doubt.

"A post-mortem was done and body parts, what we call viscera, were taken to the lab for further tests," Senior Superintendent of Police and officer in charge of the St Andrew Central Division Derrick Knight told the Jamaica Observer Friday.

"It is now being treated as a homicide. It is actively being investigated. Some pieces of equipment were also seized as part of the investigations. That's all I can say for now," Knight said.

Viscera are the large internal organs of the body, specifically those within the chest, such as the heart or lungs, or the abdominal cavity, such as the liver, pancreas and intestines.

Chemical analysis of the viscera will help establish the cause of death.

Rose, a member of the Jamaica Used Car Dealers Association for eight years, was found dead on the weekend of November 25.
