(SNO) – The police are investigating the death of a man whose body was discovered in the community of River Dorée, Choiseul on Monday, July 9, 2018.
He has been identified as Simon “Lordwin” Modeste, 54, a resident of Tete Morne, Choiseul and originally from Caffiere, Choiseul.
His body was found in the bushes by Dorée River, around 10 p.m., and pronounced dead at the scene by a medical doctor.
A relative told St. Lucia News Online (SNO) that Modeste is suspected of falling to his death from a breadfruit tree.
“He came from work at about 3 p.m. They said he left to go look for pig food,” the relative said.
Having not returned home for quite an unusually long time, relatives went in search of Modeste who was found face-down.
According to the relative, when the body was turned over, it appeared he bled from the ears and nose.
Modeste did taxi work at a resort in Soufriere, according to the relative.
