Body of boy found on seawall

The body of a 16-year-old boy was discovered early this morning at the Kitty seawall opposite the 1823 National Monument.

Dead is Jerome Sturge of 32 East Ruimveldt Front Road Squatting Area. Sturge was a former student of the Caramel High and the David Rose School.

His mother, Margaret Persaud, said that she last saw him at around 10am on Thursday shortly before he left his home in the company of two other boys. “He was not known to go on the seawalls. He cannot swim and we don’t think he drowned,” the woman said.

She also said that the two teenagers her son was last seen with were taken to the Kitty Police Station to give statements.

Sturge leaves to mourn his mother and eight siblings.
