Cops probe death of Ukrainian on ship docked in Jamaica
Police are probing the death of a Ukrainian on a container ship docked at the port in Kingston.
The dead man has been identified as 47-year-old Manzhos Yuriy, the ship’s chief engineer, who resides in Nikolacv, southern Ukraine.
Yuriy was reportedly found dead Monday by a member of the ship’s crew, Observer Online has learnt.
The Newport West police reported that around 11:45 am on Monday, checks were made to Yuriy’s living quarters by a crew member, when he was found partially dressed and lying on his back across his bed.
He was motionless and foaming from both corners of the mouth, the police said.
Lawmen boarded the vessel, called ‘Crystal A’, and found Yuriy shirtless and clad in black and grey short pants.
No marks of violence were seen, the police said. Several blood spots were observed on the lower posterior, synonymous with lividity.
