An autopsy in the death of a Gros Islet man found floating in the river Thursday afternoon showed no signs of foul play, relatives have said.
Police and emergency officials responded around 1:30 p.m. (Jan.19) to a report of suspected drowning at Gros Islet. When they arrived, they found the body of Maquid Annerville, 29.
The man’s sister, Tanisha Paul, told the press today that following the post-mortem examination, the doctor met with them and explained that Annerville died as a result of drowning. He had no illnesses.
While relatives were worried that lacerations to the side of Annerville’s face might of had something to do with his death, they were told by the doctor that it was connected to his drowning.
But Paul said she still have some doubts in her mind as to circumstances of her brother’s death, especially since he had complained earlier of seeing ‘things’ and had told her that he was going to die.
The family is in deep sorrow and still cant come to grips with their loss.
Annerville was described by relatives as a peaceful person who prayed a lot.
