A Dominican was found dead in an SUV in St. Thomas in what police are describing as a ‘mystery death.’
The body of Joseph Ducreay, 19, was found with two gunshot wounds, one to the chest and another to the head, inside the SUV in Anna’s Retreat, St. Thomas last Saturday, according to media reports.
The death is described as mysterious since there were no damages to the vehicle.
“Obviously, there was more than one person in the vehicle, but what transpired is a mystery at this point,” Police Commissioner Delroy Richards told The Consortium newspaper.
He told the newspaper that police officers were dispatched after the force’s ShotSpotter equipment detected three gunshots, and upon arrival on the scene, they found Joseph sitting lifeless inside the locked vehicle.
