Businessman Cameron “Dotcom” Primus of Arnos Vale was found dead in Walker Piece, New Montrose early Thursday morning inside a taxi among some bushes.
“It appears as though he has a gunshot wound to the head,” Officer in Charge of the Criminal Investigations Department, Superintendent of Police Ruth Jacobs told reporters at the scene.
Primus, 38, manages Tree House Bar in Arnos Vale.
He is said to have also operated the taxi in which his body was found.
The taxi, a car, was among some bushes about 50 feet from the road.
It had some damage to the left side, including a broken wing mirror.
Police responding to a call sometime between 2 a.m. and 3 a.m. Thursday found Primus dead in the car, Jacobs told reporters.
The death, the eighth homicide this year, brings to three the number of murders in St. Vincent and the Grenadines since Saturday, the fourth of which occurred this month.
