Man left for dead on Mullet Bay BeachPOSTED: 02/28/11 12:16 PM
St. Maarten – The death of 37 year old L.G. in a Martinique hospital Saturday is being investigated by the police forensic and detective departments. The Caucasian Frenchman’s body was first discovered just after sunrise on Saturday at the Mullet Bay Beach. He was still alive at the time.
According to a statement the Police Central Dispatch took a call about the discovery of the man’s body just after sunrise. They were told he was seriously injured and both a patrol and ambulance were dispatched. Officers who went to scene state L.G was so badly injured that he was unable to give a statement. Paramedics treated him for the wounds about his body and then took him to the St. Maarten Medical Center.
The hospital here gave L.G further initial care, but after determining they could not handle the seriousness of his wounds, they decided to fly him to Martinique at 6:00 p.m. Roughly two hours later police were notified that L.G. had succumbed to his injuries.
“The Police Department is asking anyone who was in the Maho Reef/ Mullet Bay area on February 25th at around midnight and February 26th around 06.00 a.m. and may have some information with regard to this case to call the police department at 54-22222 ext. 204 or 205 and forward this information,” the police spokesman Inspector Ricardo Henson said Sunday.
