  1. For a moment there I thought he was the "key witness" that DPP was seeking help to locate. Then I thought, it was in Micoud not Choiseul & the name is different. Nothing was divulged in SLNO report as to age. So I gave up an said, "Close! But no cigar!".


  2. He went missing after 7 a.m. police was notified after 11. Statement was given. He was found suspended in a tree after 3. People stop being judgemental and get facts right. Nobody is perfect. What is needed is prayers for the grieving family. Today is theirs but you never know what your fate will be.


  3. He was found by family member at 11.00 am and police was summoned to the scene at 2.00 pm.


    • I think the story said he was reported missing at 11am and the police was summoned at 2. I don't think it mentioned the time the body was found


    • Why are you people so quick to correct a news article saying the exact fact that you claim is falsely printed. Please read properly and find something better to do with your time. The article is printed correctly so condolences to the family.
