St. Maarten – The badly burnt body of the man found in Hope Estate last Saturday has been identified as Gaston Ambroise Gumbs. Chief prosecutor Hans Mos confirmed yesterday that Gumbs died as the result of a crime. The 50-year-old French Quarter resident was reported missing by his family the past weekend.

Yesterday the pathologist performed an autopsy that revealed Gumbs was murdered. His identity was established based on fingerprints.

As is customary, the prosecutor’s office did not reveal any information about the way Gumbs was killed or about the circumstances that led to his death.

The number of murders for the year is now eight.
