A man believed to be in his early 40’s was chopped to death on Tuesday evening in Laborie.
He has been identified as Marcus Nelson, alias Bowcha.
The incident took place at Mon Repos Hill, between 6 and 7 p.m., near his residence.
An eyewitness said Nelson’s body had multiple stab/wounds to his head, wrist (severed), and chest.
Residents claim they saw a white car leaving the scene, but did not bother to take the licence number.
It is believed that Nelson’s body was thrown out of the vehicle and onto the road.
The police have no suspects so far.
This is the second homicide for 2016.
