The decomposing body of a man was found on Thursday in an apartment complex along McInroy Street, in Curepe.
Residents in the area say they detected a stench coming from the building.
Upon investigating they found the body of a man who resided in one of the apartments.
The discovery was made around 3.30 pm. The police were notified and officers from the St Joseph police station and the Homicide Bureau responded. The body, police said, was in an advanced state of decomposition, and as a result, an autopsy was ordered to determine what caused the death.
The deceased, police were told, was last seen alive about three weeks ago by residents of the apartment complex.
