Police have launched a homicide investigation, after a man turned up at the Central Police Station late Sunday night, saying that his friend was dead in his vehicle in Richmond Hill.
Sources in the know told iWitness News that police responded to the report and found Dominican Gregory Linton, a 43-year-old resident of Glen, dead in his vehicle.
Linton was the representative of the Caribbean Agricultural Research and Development Institute (CARDI) in St. Vincent and the Grenadines, where he had been stationed since 2017.
iWitness News was reliably informed that Linton had what appeared to be an injury to the head and his licensed firearm was missing.
The man who made the report to police has been taken into custody as the investigation continues.
He reportedly told police that he saw Linton’s vehicle there with the glasses frosted over and peeped inside and saw Linton “dead” inside.
In a statement, on Monday, police said they were investigating the discovery of Linton’s “partially decomposed body” in a blue Toyota Hilux automobile that was parked outside the Kingstown Preparatory School.
Police said that a postmortem examination will be conducted on the body to ascertain the cause of death.
Members of the public who have information that can help with the investigation are encouraged to call 1-784-456-1810 or 1-784-457-1211 ext. 4837 or 999/911.
“All calls will be treated confidentially,” police said.
