Police are investigating the discovery of a body in Dorsetshire Hill Wednesday morning.

A relative told iWitness News that the body is that of Garfield “Yabba” Mofford, a farmer.

iWitness News was unable to ascertain the man’s age.

A police source said that the body was found outside the shack where Mofford lived.

The dilapidated structure is located in a field planted with sweet potatoes, said to have been cultivated by Mofford.

The police source said the body was wrapped in a sheet and appeared to have chop wounds.

A resident of the community told iWitness News that the body was found by another villager who had gone to tether his animal.

The resident said the other villager’s curiosity was apparently aroused by a foul odour in the area.

If Mofford’s death is ruled a homicide, it will be the second killing in St. Vincent and the Grenadines (SVG) this week.

On Monday, Tevin Williams, 22, of Rockies died on the spot after being shot in Melville Street, Kingstown about 8 p.m.

Williams’ death brought to 15 the number of homicides in SVG in 2019.

  1. The government has to increase the jail time to 25 years since it cannot hang these criminals. The ULP and NDP should get together to help protect Vincentians. This cannot continue in the land of my birth. If the politicians cannot get together then the people should and must do so. The churches should organize demonstrations irrespective of political affiliation to protect the people they say they are serving. Burying dead bodies is not the only service you can do for the people. If you don’t address these killings then your sermons will be full of nothing but crap.
