A police officer is among two men whose bodies were found in Sion Hill Bay, east of Kingstown on Thursday.
Head of the Major Crime Unit, Detective Inspector Athlan Browne confirmed that a police office is among the dead, but did not disclose his identity.
But media reports have identified him as Constable Danroy Delroy Cozier, who was attached to the Mesopotamia Police Station.
Browne, in brief comments to journalists at the scene, offered no theories, but described the development as “sad”. He said police were yet to identify the other deceased man.
Both bodies where lying among grass under some trees on the greens near the beach. Police said they had what appeared to be bullet wounds.
