On Sunday morning at about 8:30 a.m., Allen Nunez went out to fetch some water from a well in the New Site area in Punta Gorda for his common-law wife, when he discovered the lifeless body of an unidentified male person lying face down in the well.
Nunez stated that the well has approximately thirty years of existence in that area; however, it was not used regularly by him or his family and in order to access the well, he had to cut through bushes and create a trail. While cutting through the bushes, Nunez saw what appeared to be a doll’s foot but as he got nearer, he realized that it was in fact human.
Nunez immediately alerted one of his neighbours who then informed the police about the incident. Due to the state of decomposition, the body could not be removed from the location an on-site post-mortem examination was conducted at around 4:22 p.m.
The body was later identified as nineteen year old Jarrel Edward Pop, a resident of #3 Queen Street. Pop had chop and stab wounds to the neck, back, cervical region and to his lower abdomen. Police have taken seven persons of interest into custody pending investigations.
