Homicide investigation launched into death of New Montrose man

The police have launched a homicide investigation into the death of a 42 year old man of New Montrose whose partly decomposed body was found on April, 30, 2024.

A release from the Royal St Vincent and the Grenadines Police Force (RSVGPF) states that the investigation was opened into the death of Ronaltho Bute following the results of a post-mortem examination. The results are that Bute died as a result of blunt trauma to the head.

The RSVGPF said as a result, it has   elevated the case to a homicide investigation.

Bute’s body was discovered in a residence located at Walker Piece, New Montrose by the homeowner  during a routine property inspection, the release states.

It was a stench that led to the discovery of the body which initially had not been identified. However, a family member later identified the body as that of Bute.

The police say they are actively pursuing all leads and are committed to undertaking a thorough investigation.

They are therefore appealing to anyone with information that can assist in the investigation to contact Police Emergency at 999/911 or the Criminal Investigations Department at 784-456-1810.
