The teen, Anthony Augustin of Grand Riviere, Gros-Islet was reportedly an open homosexual; local media reported the teen went missing after leaving to meet a young male he met earlier on Facebook.

Augustin's body was fished from the Trouya Beach at around 1:30pm on Tuesday. He was found with a laceration to his throat and 56 stab wounds. A post mortem, conducted on the body yesterday, concluded that he died from hemorrhagic shock secondary to a stab wound.

No arrests have been made in connection with the murder but Police are trying to locate a St Lucia-based Jamaican man who has been identified as a person of interest in the investigation.
