Police investigating a suspicious smell coming from the home of an elderly man on the corner of Griffith Land and Black Rock Main Road, St Michael discovered what appeared to be a body.
On their second visit to the home of Anthony Mings, the officers today took away a woman in her sixties after discovering a decomposing body in the yard.
Residents said Mings, 81, a known character and land owner from the area, had been ailing for some time, but after a while, disappeared from his usual verandah visits.
The identity of the body has not been confirmed at this time. (AC)
