Suspected homicide, victim found tied up


Signs of foul play are clear in the case of a North Street man found dead, tied up in an abandoned house yesterday afternoon.

The police say the dead man’s hands were bound behind his back and his feet were also tied, and he was found lying face-down.

The deceased has been identified as Carlton Charles. When found by a friend who went looking for him at 4 p.m. yesterday, his remains were already in an advanced stage of decomposition.

The dead man was dressed in a pair of dark coloured short pants and a yellow t-shirt, police said.

Meanwhile, the police issued a press statement appealing to anyone with information surrounding this incident to contact the Criminal Investigations Department at 462-3913 or 462-3914.
