Police are investigating the death of a man whose body was recovered from the waters of Marigot Bay today (June 3), law enforcement sources have told St. Lucia News Online.
The deceased has been identified as Danley Noel, popularly known by the nickname ‘Babylips’. He was originally from Canaries, according to a source.
Reports are that Noel was accidentally thrown from a dinghy when the vessel crashed into rocks between Buckeye terminals and Marigot Bay.
The body was removed by the Police Marine Unit this morning.
“[The] body was found this morning [Monday] by persons going out fishing,” the source said.
“He’s not a fisherman. He is a boat boy in Marigot Bay. He would help the yachts coming into Marigot Bay upon a buoy. That sort of thing,” the source added. “He was alive yesterday [Sunday]. He was at the event Vigie yesterday as well, so this must have happened last night when he was returning from Vigie to Marigot Bay.”
Marigot police received the report at about 6 a.m., another source reported.
