MAN FOUND DEAD IN CAR, SHOT SEVERAL TIMES

April 26, 2001 – St. Thomas homicide detectives are expected to work through the Carnival holidays to identify the killers of a man whose bullet-riddled body was found Wednesday afternoon.
Investigators were summoned to an access road off the top of Crown Mountain around 4:30 p.m. after the body was found inside a Mazda Protege sedan.
The man was found in the driver's seat of the car parked on the right side of the road leading to WGOD radio. He was shot in the head and several times in the body.
The car had been seen parked along the roadside since earlier in the day, police said Wednesday night.
Though police have identified the dead man, his name has been withheld pending notification of next of kin.
Wednesday's fatal shooting brings to seven the number of killings in the territory in 2001. Five of those have been committed on St. Thomas. Police appealed to anyone with information to contact detectives at 777-8711, 774-2196 or the police emergency number 911.
