(Antigua Observer) Two men whose bodies were fished out of a pond in St. Martin this week, have been identified as Antiguans – Pedro Jerome Potter and Ozandee Benjamin.
The confirmation came yesterday from the Strategic Communications Department of the Royal Police Force of Antigua and Barbuda.
The police have also revealed that a missing person’s report was not filed for the two men.
According to the police, the bodies of the men were found in the water on the French side of the island at different times of the day.
The police reported that Potter’s body was found floating on the water around 9:30 a.m. on Tuesday, while Benjamin’s was found hours later.
St. Martin News Network also reported that around 10:30 a.m. on Tuesday, Gendarmes were called to Lucas Bay Oyster Pond when a passer-by noticed a body floating in the water. At the time, Colonel Sebastien Manzoni said that the person, a male of probably Caribbean or Antillean decent, may have died from drowning.
The news agency added that on Wednesday afternoon the Gendarmes were called again to Lucas Bay to fish out another body. An investigation is currently underway.
