The decomposing body believing to be that of a missing Westmoreland teen was discovered in bushes bordering Hanover and Westmoreland on Friday afternoon.
The investigators have confirmed that the decomposing body is that of missing 17-year-old girl Jaydeen Grant who hails from Argyle Mountain in Westmoreland, that went missing from her home on Saturday, February 3.
The community known as Argyle Mountain lies on the border of Hanover and Westmoreland, the 17-year-old teen resides with her family members in the section which falls in the parish of Westmoreland.
Last Saturday afternoon she reportedly went missing from the area and after an unsuccessful search was carried out, a report was made at the Bethel Town police station.
Shortly after 2:00 p.m., on Friday, February 16, residents living at the section of Argyle Mountain, alerted the Ramble police after a farmer stumbled upon a decomposing body in bushes.
Officers attached to both Ramble and Bethel Town rushed to the location where the body was in an advanced state of decomposition.
It is believed that her attackers may have chopped her to pieces and then dumped her body at the section of bushes.
