Early on Wednesday, November 29, 2017 at a bench on a makeshift bus shed at a junction between the villages of Cotton Tree and Harmonyville, the head of a human was found. The head was found shortly after 6 a.m. by a man who was heading to work. He said that he saw a plastic bag on the board of a bench and upon inspection of the bag, he realized that it was the head of a human male.

The police were called and it is understood that the officers were able to recognize the face. As a result, the officers made checks at an unfinished house located about one mile away from Cotton Tree, about a quarter of a mile from the bench. There, an unpainted bungalow concrete structure, the home of the deceased, was on fire. In the yard at about 20 yards away from the house, the body was found.

The body was that of a brown complexioned male person without its head. It was observed with multiple stab wounds and later identified to be that of Hilton Wayne Wade, a 56-year old Belizean laborer of Cotton Tree Village.

Wade’s body was transported to the Western Regional Hospital where it awaits a post mortem. Police investigations continue.

Persons who knew Wade say that it is an especially cruel end for a man believed to have been suffering from mental illness. He was living at several different properties over an extended period of time.
