Zoo: Crocky buried this morning

The Zoological Society says the American Crocodile "Crocky" that died at the zoo on Sunday, has been buried.

The Zoo said yesterday that a full necropsy report was being commissioned to determine the exact cause of death. 

In an update today, the Zoo said the animal was buried in its entirety this morning.

It said that the decision was made by the Board of the Society to opt for burial based on consultations with international partners and literature review.

Body found in Matura forest; police fear man might have been buried alive

The decomposing body of a man has been found buried in a forested area, wrapped in plastic.

He has been identified as 20-year-old Donald Pierre.

Police say a man from East Trinidad led a team of officers attached to the Homicide and Inter-Agency Bureas to a quarry in the dense forested area in Matura Village, where he pointed out to an area where a man's body was buried.

Late Monday evening, officers used a backhoe to dig into the loose quarry dirt and discovered the decomposing body.
