Decomposing body of contractor found in St James
The decomposing body of a contractor was found at his home in Lilliput, St James, on Monday.
Detectives attached to the Barrett Town Police Station said they are not sure of the cause of death. However, they have identified the man as 73-year-old Neville Parkinson, otherwise called 'Rasta'.
THE STAR understands that Parkinson's body was found by residents after they went to look for him after not seeing him for a couple days.
