Windy Sylvester (left) was last seen alive on Wednesday. His decomposing body (centre) was discovered in a drain close to a motorcycle (right) along the Bexon Highway. Police suspect his death stemmed from a hit-and-run.

Police said no foul play is suspected “to date” in the death of 37-year-old of Wendy ‘Windy’ Sylvester of Bexon.

In a press release distributed on Monday (June 12, 2017), police said Sylvester, who was last seen alive, about midnight on Wednesday, June 7, 2017, was discovered in a drain at Around the Bend, Bexon, on Friday, June 9, 2017, about 4:10 p.m. His body was in a state of decomposition.

His motorcycle, registration number PG6273, was discovered a short distance away from his body, the release further stated.

“Initial reports indicate Windy Sylvester was the victim of a road accident; no foul play is suspected to date,” police said.

A post mortem examination was conducted upon the body by Dr. Heather Emmanuel on Saturday, June 10, 2017, which revealed that he died as a result of traumatic brain injury with global subarachnoid haemorrhage due to base of skull and right temporal bone fracture.

This incident brings the number of road fatalities recorded for 2017 to 10, police said.

In an earlier story, a Bexon resident revealed what seems to be the last encounter that Sylvester had with anyone before he went missing on Wednesday.

The resident, whose identity was not revealed, spoke to media on Friday, detailing a final encounter with Sylvester.

The resident explained that at some point, the two of them went to the club “by Massy” and after they “had a good time” it was about midnight when Sylvester “dropped me home.”

“I walked home. He said he is going home because he has to work tomorrow but he never got home,” the resident said, adding that it is very difficult to see such a thing happen to “a close soldier, and he was really close.”

The resident added that one cannot help but feel partly responsible for Sylvester’s ill-fate, because “it was me he went and drop that night” but never made it home.

    Accident or not it is a hit and run.The driver of the vehicle could have saved his life if acted promptly. He/she never informed the police making matters worse if caught

  5. " no fowl play to date" seems to suggest that there is no evidence of fowl play, but to date means that if there is any info which seems to contradict that ruling, a further investigation could or may ensue. that's my understanding of how it is worded..

  6. straight SHOOTER

    I hope for the sake of good policing that this investigation is still open. The young man who was dropped of at his residence earlier will be the starting point of this investigation if there is any, . === CHASTANET AND GUY ODIOT JOSEPH NEED MORE MONEY IN THEIR POCKETS. SO WHY AN INVESTIGATION.

  10. “Initial reports indicate Windy Sylvester was the victim of a road accident; no foul play is suspected to date,” police said. Does that mean it was not a hit & run???

    • Dr.heather Emanuel also did an examination on the bike and came to that conclusion..shake my head.those police men are so incompetent that they will leave it as that.

    • Any road incident resulting in damages to a vehicle, animal, thing it person where a vehicle is involved is a road accident... Sometimes a single vehicle is involved in a road accident. No foul play means there is no evidence that it was a hit and run or homicide.

      • It would have been best if they had simply said "there is no evidence to suggest that another vehicle was involved" as opposed to no foul play is suspected.
