The body of Maurice “Tuko” Young, a 57 year-old resident of Santana Village on the Old Northern Highway was found on Tuesday, May 20, in a patch of grass behind his house. There is the strong suspicion that he didn’t die of natural causes; in fact, his family and friends suspect that he was killed.

 Young was expected to have been on the bus to Maskall on Monday, and when the residents found his bicycle unsecured and his radio  inside his house, they suspected that something was wrong. When he was not seen for the entire day on Monday, they began to actively search for him, and that’s when they found Young’s body decomposing the next day.

 Police were called in after an on sight post mortem on Wednesday, he was laid to rest in the village. Though the police investigators are treating the matter as a homicide investigation, they are waiting for Dr. Mario Estradabran to release his findings. Those who have gotten a chance to view it, however, have suggested to the press they’ve seen signs which suggest that violence may have been committed against Young.
