A 46-year-old man was beaten to death and left partially submerged in a drain filled with water, in an area known as Hell Yard in Beetham on Thursday.

However, an autopsy is expected to confirm the actual cause of death.

According to a police report, at about 3.30 pm yesterday, Paul Timothy Adams—who was popularly known as "Speedy"—was found partially submerged face down in a water-filled drain at 13th street.

Police described Adams as a drug addict and believed that the circumstances surrounding his death were drug-related.

Investigations are continuing.
