CHRISTIANSTED, St Croix, USVI — The body of a man who went missing on April 26, 2018 was recovered underneath a barge at the Green Cay Marina on St Croix, US Virgin Islands (USVI) on Sunday, April 29, 2018 [US] Virgin Islands Police Department (VIPD) Public Information Officer Glen Dratte has announced.

The man, identified as Jason Parr, was last seen alive at the Deep End Bar at about 10:30 P.M on Thursday, according to Mr Dratte.

On Friday at approximately 8:00 A.M., the VIPD’s Criminal  Investigation Bureau (C.I.B.) conducted a thorough search of the Green Cay Marina for Mr Parr. During the search, officers observed signs of decomposition, including an odor emanating from the area of a moored barge.

According to Mr Dratte, a diver subsequently went into the water and observed a body floating underneath the barge with clothing matching those Mr Parr was reported to be wearing when he went missing. He was later positively identified by next of kin.

The VIPD was awaiting the results of an autopsy before it could determine the cause of death, according to Mr Dratte.
