Police said they do not suspect foul play in the death of a U.K. national whose body was found on a 50-foot yacht on Sunday.
Mark Sturton’s body was discovered aboard the “Turana,” which was anchored three hundred feet from shore in Falmouth Harbour.
Lawmen said that they are carrying out investigations into the circumstances surrounding the death of a U.K. man, but a preliminary investigation determined that there were no visible signs of violence on the body.
According to police reports, the deceased who was staying on the yacht, was discovered by his friend Trevor Marston, also of the United Kingdom, who said that he last saw his friend six days before the discovery.
The vessel was towed by Antigua and Barbuda Search and Rescue (ABSAR) to Sammy’s boatyard.
Dr. Gilbert Charles, the district doctor, arrived on the scene at 2:30 p.m. and pronounced Sturton dead.
His body was transported to the Barnes Funeral Home.
An autopsy will be conducted to determine the course of the investigation.
