According to a police report, upon information received police officers from the San Juan Police Station went to a vacant plot of land opposite AMC Group of Companies and after walking some distance off the road into the forested area they came across a shed in the trees.
While searching the officers found a partially decomposed body of a male of African descent approximately 55 years of age in the shed dressed in a red jersey and black pants. Police said the deceased was known only by the alias “Buju” originally from St Joseph.
