Police unsure over US man’s death at TI resort

| 28/05/2014

(CNS): The RCIPS has revealed the identity of the man whose body was found at Treasure Island Resort, on the West Bay Road, some time on Tuesday morning but they have not said how the man died. A police spokesperson said James Dean McLaughlin (38) was from Washington State in the United States, but he was living and working in the Cayman Islands as an Investment Analyst. Detectives from CID are still conducting inquiries into the circumstances surrounding his death and a post mortem has been scheduled. However, police said it was still premature to speculate on the cause of death and have not yet given any indication whether or not they suspect foul play.

Officers investigating the death of McLaughlin are appealing to anyone who may have seen or spoken to him or knew where he was believed to have been at any time between Monday 19 and Tuesday 27 May, when his body was found, to contact them as soon as possible.

Anyone who can help is asked to call Detective Inspector Collins Oremule at 516-8746 or Detective Sergeant Charmane Huntley at 525-9395 or Crime Stoppers at 800-8477(TIPS).

    Jim, you were a gentleman and a great father  to your very sweet kids and you always had a smile and something nice to say to anyone you met.

    It is just sad that no one checked in on you for so long. No one should die like that.

    Rest in peace my friend..We will all miss you.

    R.I.P.  Jim.. I will always remember you and your kids playing in the pool when you lived at Regal Beach. They loved their dad and I know you loved them very much too.

    I was shocked to hear this.  Jim was a true gentleman all the way around both professionally and personally.  It is amazing that perhaps (we don't know yet of course) that he went that long without someone noticing that he wasn't around.  He was an amazing Dad XXXXX

    Condolences to his family.

    RIP. I can't believe no one went to look for him sooner. I'm hoping that someone saw him after May 19. If not that's very sad that someone didn't go looking for him before almost 10 days had passed.
