A body that was fished from the sea behind the Lucea bus park on October 27 is said to be that of returning resident Seymour Samuels. Samuels went missing on October 25 and the body was recovered two days after he was reported missing.
It took the security forces 44 days to inform the family that they had, in fact, removed a body fitting the description from the sea. Samuels’ family has been making public appeals to find him to no avail since he disappeared few days shy of 2 months ago. Pictures of Mr. Samuels have been plastered all over public spaces including police stations and hospitals in Westmoreland and Hanover where Mr. Samuels had been staying since he returned from England and New York where he had resided for over 40 years.
