Residents of St. Joseph were left in shock after the body of a man was fished out of the sea on Thursday morning at around 11:30.

The man has been identified as Justin Joseph, also known as ‘Bougah.’

A source told DNO that Joseph left home at around 5:00 am to take an early morning sea bath and did not return.

Later in the morning a resident noticed his clothes on the beach and began making inquiries.

The body was later seen floating in the sea.

DNO is following this story and will provide updates as they become available.

    For someone that was so admired and respected throughout the community, I think it’s about time a photo of him be displayed instead of this morbid image of his body covered by a sheet. Is this how he is to be remembered?

    Heavenly father please give the family of this man the courage to go through this tragic insident. Amen

    I am speculating that he may have suffered a heart attack or an aneurysm. The result of the autopsy will determine the cause of death.
    Some people usually go bathing by themselves. It is not wise to go alone, especially so early in the morning when no one is around.
    His sudden death is a shock for the family and others who knew him.
    My deepest sympathy to all of you. I visualize how difficult it is for you to bear. May you find comfort in the Risen Lord. Be consoled that He is ever near as you grieve the loss of your loved one.
    Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him. May his soul rest in peace. Amen!

    so sad,so tragic…..The only thing I don’t understand is the term that he was fished out. His no fish. Anyway my heart goes out to his love one. I heard his wife said that he was a good person in the village I hoped that it was said to him before his passing because we only recognized that only when someone is pass on. Please give people there flower before they are gone.rest in peace.. To his love one take courage and God will see you through.

      There are entirely too many errors for such a short comment.

      Since you stated it, isn’t it usually the case when people die others have good things to say about them and, as if they even canonize them as saints.
      In the city I reside, I heard someone say that the deceased is in Heaven; that one, never having practiced the faith, as some reject God and do not want to hear about Him.
      When some are alive, no matter how kind they were, even going out of their way to perform good deeds, they are not appreciated. The recipients knew the good they did but said nothing; some, expecting more and more. This sometimes occurs more often than not. The word “love and thank you” may never cross their minds to say it, as well, never came out of them mouths. They may say, “If only I knew.” Then it it too late for regret.
      The saying, “Time waits for no one” and “Send me no flowers when I’m gone. Give them to me when I am alive.” Some still have not learned that.
      God is his final judge. May he rest in peace. Amen!

      Please, this may not be the place; however, did you not do figures of speech in school? It is a figure of speech and applicable to this situation.
