The body of a 44-year-old man was discovered this morning at Checker Hall, St Lucy.
Residents said that they had seen a vehicle with a Christ Church registration number parked on the playing field before 6 a.m.
They became suspicious when more than four hours later it was still there.
Eventually a woman turned up, looked into the SUV and officers from the Crab Hill Police Station were summoned.
Police said the body had wounds to the arms and other areas of his body.
