A flock of corbeaux feasting on a decomposing human body near the shore at Moruga led beach-goers to the ghastly find yesterday.
Police said around 8 am, the remains were found on a beach off at La Retraite Trace at Lanse Mitan, Moruga.
The corpse was lying partially on some rocks and on the sand. It was viewed by the District Medical Officer who ordered it removed to the Forensic Science Centre.
Police said the body could not be identified because of the advanced state of decomposition.
Moruga police are continuing investigations.
