Police are investigating the death of another visitor from the United States, whose body was found floating in a canal in the West End area of Grand Bahama.
Worried that the U.S. might issue another crime warning against traveling to The Bahamas, police were quick to say it was a drowning.
However, they have requested a post mortem examination be performed to determine the exact cause of death.
One tactic the government uses to keep the murder statistics down, is to refuse to categorize some deaths as murder, sometimes not classifying the death at all. In 2013 there over 40 “mysterious” deaths that were not categorized.
